ASL/APSL

After a six year hiatus, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers name was revived in 1988, with a team joining the newly-formed American Soccer League. In just their first season back, the Strikers stormed the ASL, finishing with a 14-6 record, best in the league, before falling to the Washington Diplomats in the finals. In their second season the Strikers did almost as well, finishing the season with a 12-8 record, but emerged in the playoffs, eventually going on to defeat the Boston Bolts to win the 1989 championship. Following the end of the season, the Strikers defeated the San Diego Nomads of the Western Soccer League in the ASL-WSL "National Championship" game 3-1.

After that season the ASL merged with the WSL to form the American Professional Soccer League. They would play five more years in that league.
