“We would like to express our appreciation to the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Commission and staff, along with the FAA, for working with us to ensure a timely resolution of our Lockhart Stadium license agreement,” said Strikers managing director Tim Robbie. “We are looking forward to our first full year as historic Lockhart Stadium’s operating entity, and to another successful season for the Strikers.”
Robbie is leading Fort Lauderdale’s effort to pursue a permanent home at a significantly renovated Lockhart Stadium or at a new soccer-specific stadium in South Florida.
The Strikers will play 15 home games during the NASL regular season at Lockhart Stadium next year, as well as hosting at least one match in the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
