Philadelphia Fever (MISL)

The Philadelphia Fever were an indoor soccer team based out of Philadelphia that played in the original Major Indoor Soccer League from 1978 to 1982.[1] Their home arena was the Spectrum. After being granted a one-year hiatus following the 1981-82 season, the team ultimately folded. While it is often reported that the Los Angeles Lazers were the relocated Fever, the one-year hiatus was actually granted at the same time as the Lazers were awarded an expansion franchise, during the MISL's August 1982 league meetings. [2] The four seasons in Philadelphia the Fever average attendance was 5,777 per game.
