Local Soccer

Come join the Strikers at one of our many soccer-playing opportunities throughout the spring and summer.

Wednesday League Season 1 In Progress

8:00-9:30 pm Wednesdays at Rotch Field

The Strikers 7v7 league is a social league that welcomes all skill levels. The league takes place in two 5-week seasons, with additional open play weeks. After each session, players and friends are invited to join the Strikers at our sponsor bar, Cathedral Station in the South End, for some drinks and fun. Register here

Sunday Practices In Progress

2:00 - 4:00 pm Sundays at Madison Park (lower field)

Sunday practices offer players of all skill levels a chance to brush up on the basics, kick the ball around with friends, and get outside on those warm sunny weekends. It's a great chance for newcomers to see what the Strikers are all about in a relaxed and fun environment. All players welcome. There is no cost to register for Sunday practices, but we encourage players to register and stay informed.

Spring BSSC 7v7

Boston Ski and Sports Club (BSSC) is an adult sports league in Boston which offers various types of league play throughout the year, and the Strikers regularly field teams in this external league.

There is currently no BSSC season in progress. We are gathering interest in fielding a team for BSSC's upcoming soccer leagues, including co-ed leagues. Please talk to a board member or Contact Us if you are interested!


The Strikers also offer opportunities for our players to travel around the US (and the world!) to showcase our skills and make memories that last a lifetime. Check out the various tournaments offered by LGBT clubs all over and let us know through our travel tournaments page if you are interested in joining us.

Boston Pride Parade

Boston Pride for the People Parade

Saturday, June 10, 11:00 am Parade
Copley Square & Boston Common

An annual tradition returns!

The Strikers are marching in Boston's Pride Parade this year, in the parade's return to the city now organized by Boston Pride For The People. All Strikers are invited to join!

The Parade is on Saturday June 10 and begins at 11am. Come show your Strikers pride as we march, show off some soccer skills (optional), and play with our signature giant inflatable soccer ball.

Chandler Street Block Party

Saturday, June 10, 2:00 - 8:00 pm
Chandler Street

Following the Parade, the Strikers are working at the Chandler Street Block Party to promote the awesome Strikers community and to raise funds for the Strikers. The Block Party runs 2-8 pm on June 10, and the Strikers have a table where a group of us will be serving drinks. We will need more Strikers to help in one- or two-hour shifts. This is a fun event for all and volunteers get free entry to the block party. We may find a way to watch the Champions League final match too.

Register here if you are either interested in marching with us or helping at the block party, and indicate where you would like to join. We will coordinate the group by email.

Social Media

As always, we are active on social media! Join the community on Facebook and Instagram for updates, photos, and more information about the club.


We build a community for LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies in the Greater Boston area by fostering friendships, a fun atmosphere, and healthy competition through soccer inclusive of race, skill level, gender, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, and age.

The Boston Strikers Soccer Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1987 to give LGBT soccer players the opportunity to connect outside the traditional bar scene.  To this day, the club strives to offer players a space to make friendships through a sport that we all love.  The club runs leagues for all skill levels throughout the year.  We recommend trying out one of our Sunday Soccer Practices as an introduction to the league to see if you like what we're about.  Interested in receiving emails about upcoming leagues, events, and volunteer opportunities?  Visit the JOIN US page to register with your email address and we'll keep you up to speed on all things Strikers.  See you on the pitch!
