“Gooooaaaalll!” the announcer roars as your team makes the big play and the ball crashes into the opponent’s net, the goalie still in disbelief of the last few seconds’ occurrences. You leap up, arms raised high, adrenaline rushing through your veins, excitement overwhelming you as you jump around in victory and look around you — no one there except for a lonesome couch and your pet. If watching the World Cup has made you eager to watch a game live from the stadium, you can indulge in cheering among other passionate fans and be up-close to the action by catching a Major League Soccer game right from Fort Lauderdale.
On Saturday, support your South Florida professional soccer team, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers — who are currently ranked fifth in the North American Soccer League standings — as they take on the number-one-ranked Minnesota United Football Club at Lockhart Stadium, located at 1350 NW 55th St. in Fort Lauderdale.
