Arizona Strikers FC was a women's soccer team based in Yuma, Arizona. They played in the Western Conference of the W-League, the second highest tier of women’s soccer in the United States and Canada.
History [ edit ]
The team began as the Sedona FC Strikers, based in
Sedona, Arizona.   The team moved to  Yuma, Arizona and became Arizona Strikers FC on January 3, 2015.
Controversy [ edit ]
The team chose to sponsor The Desert Sun Clasico for July 14, 2015. It would have featured
Club Tijuana against Monarcas Morelia. However, poor attendance as evident by ticket sales lead to the events cancellation. President Manny Arias remarked that "Yuma has a lot of selfish people". That statement ignited the community as few knew of the match due to poor promotion and it is noted the team spent more time in San Luis going unnoticed by much of Yuma. Following the comments their website was taken down and the teams Facebook page was not being updated. A second season in Yuma was now a definite no.
