The Rochester Lancers are an indoor soccer team in the TBA League. The team is named in honor of the Rochester Lancers of the North American Soccer League.

Following a merger of the I-League and the MISL, the Lancers played their first game in Syracuse on November 4, 2011 against the Syracuse Silver Knights. Led by team captain and former Rochester Rhinos forward Doug Miller, the first game in the team's history ended in a 16-15 loss and the top scorer was Lubo Kocic who scored 4 goals for the Lancers.

The Lancers finished 2nd in the Eastern Division in 2011, qualifying for the playoffs.[1] During the 2011-12 season they, offered a surprise contract to former 76ers player Allen Iverson.[2]

The Lancers announced new head coach Josh Rife on September 13, 2013. [3][4]
