Central Broward Stadium FAQ
 

Why are you moving?

Central Broward Stadium provides an extensive, immediate upgrade in facility quality for the club, across many areas. First and foremost, in fan experience and comfort, Central Broward Stadium features modern seating areas with a full roof to protect fans from the sun and rain we frequently receive in South Florida during soccer season. The roof and intimate capacity will also greatly improve the gameday atmosphere, creating a new home field advantage for the team that simply is not possible at Lockhart Stadium. Central Broward Stadium also features a permanent video replay and score board, modern, clean, and air conditioned restrooms, indoor luxury suite facilities and new, expanded locker room facilities for the team. The facility will also feature a permanent training field for the Strikers, and Central Broward Regional Park also features many amenities such as a water park, tailgate pavilions, and tennis, netball and basketball courts that will greatly expand the gameday experience for our fans.

Broward County have been tremendous partners in this initiative, and thanks to this partnership the club will be able to consolidate team front offices, technical staff, training facility and stadium into one location.

 

What about Lockhart Stadium?

Lockhart will always be the historic home of the Strikers, and we are not closing the door on a return to the stadium. As we await the outcome of the ongoing Schiltterbahn Waterpark developments at the site, we will explore our options at the facility with the City of Fort Lauderdale. You can also expect to still see the Strikers host international soccer matches and potentially other Strikers events at Lockhart Stadium.

 

Is this a long term move for the club?

While returning to a revitalized Lockhart Stadium remains a very realistic possibility for the future, there is also the potential to convert Central Broward Stadium into the permanent home of the Strikers, with the potential for additional modifications and upgrades to fully convert it into a true soccer specific stadium.

 

 

Central Broward Stadium was designed for cricket, won’t the sight lines for soccer be bad?

The Strikers have worked very closely with Broward County to ensure the best possible field configuration for soccer at Central Broward Stadium. The pitch has been moved closer to the fans, resulting in sideline seating in the Main Stand that averages just 39 feet from the touchline, with the closest seats just 14 feet from the action. This compares favorably to Lockhart Stadium, where the closest seats are 32 feet to the touchline on the sidelines, and 42 feet from the endline behind the goals.
 

For Strikers games, there will be additional seating areas along the north sideline at Central Broward Stadium, offering the closest views of the game just steps from the touchline. For the first time in the modern era of the Strikers, seating areas encompassing the entire field will be available for every match.

Behind the Club 77 Sideline seating area on the north side of the stadium, the Strikers Kids Zone will feature interactive games and soccer fields for children.

I’m not convinced! I love Lockhart and I won’t be going to see soccer at a cricket stadium!

We understand that moving from our historic home is a major change, and there may be some preconceived notions about the layout of the new stadium. However, we invite all of South Florida to see it for yourself and experience what Central Broward Stadium has to offer. We promise that the experience will be a night and day difference and the Strikers will do everything possible to ensure that there will be no better place to watch a soccer match in South Florida than Central Broward Stadium.
