The Washington Darts were an American soccer club based in Washington, D.C. that played in the American Soccer League from 1967 to 1969 and the North American Soccer League in the 1970 and 1971 seasons. The club left Washington after 1971 and became the Miami Gatos (1972), Miami Toros (1973-76), Ft. Lauderdale Strikers (1977-83), and Minnesota Strikers (1984) in the NASL's final season. The club's colors were blue, white and gray.
In December 1963, Scottish immigrant Norman Sutherland and soccer players in the Washington, D.C. area created the amateur team, Washington Britannica. In 1967, the team went professional when it joined the American Soccer League. Following the 1969 season, after winning two consecutive league titles, the Darts left the ASL to join the first division of the American soccer pyramid at the time, the North American Soccer League. After the 1971 NASL season, the team moved to Miami becoming the Miami Gatos.
During their time in the NASL, the Darts home colors were gray with blue sleeves, and the away colors were blue.
