California United Strikers FC is an American professional soccer club based in Orange County, California.

History

The club was founded by Pete and Bronwyn Capriotti and Michael Collins, who have had connections to the adult amateur United Premier Soccer League.

California United FC intended to join the North American Soccer League (NASL) as an expansion franchise for the 2018 season. However, due to the instability of the league, California United withdrew its franchise agreement from NASL in early 2018 and announced that it was exploring all professional league options for the 2019 season. On November 15, 2018, the club was announced as a participant in the 2019 NPSL Founders Cup and as a founding member of a new league to being in 2020.[1]

On March 2, 2019 the team tweeted out their intention to withdraw from the NPSL and NPSL Founders Cup.[2] Three months later, on June 10, 2019, the team was accepted into the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA) as a member for the league's inaugural season.[3]
