Tampa Bay Rowdies

The Tampa Bay Rowdies are an American professional soccer team based in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida. Founded in 2008, the team currently play in the North American Soccer League (NASL), the second tier of the American soccer pyramid. The team play their home games at Progress Energy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida, and is coached by Ricky Hill. When plans for a new professional soccer team in the area were announced in 2008, the franchise called itself the "Tampa Bay Rowdies", the same name used from 1975 to 1993 by Tampa's franchise in the old North American Soccer League.

They have a long-standing rivalry with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, with whom they have contested in the Florida Derby since 1977. The current Rowdies use the same green and yellow colors and the iconic hoops as the original team.

Famous quotes containing the word bay:

    Baltimore lay very near the immense protein factory of Chesapeake Bay, and out of the bay it ate divinely. I well recall the time when prime hard crabs of the channel species, blue in color, at least eight inches in length along the shell, and with snow-white meat almost as firm as soap, were hawked in Hollins Street of Summer mornings at ten cents a dozen.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
