A bit of history:
Harrisburg City Islanders are an American soccer team, founded in 2004. The team is a member of the United Soccer Leagues Second Division, the third tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. The City Islanders play their home games in at the Skyline Sports Complex on City Island, in the city of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The team's colors are tropical blue and navy blue.
The City Islanders were an immediate success in the second division, finishing fifth in their inaugural season, and qualifying for the playoffs, where they were eliminated in the first round by the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. The City Islanders improved on this showing in their second year, as they finished third in the league with a 12-3-5 record, but were eliminated from the playoffs by the eventual champions, the Charlotte Eagles.
In 2005, Bill Becher, the Harrisburg coach, was named USL-2 Coach of the Year, while player Chad Severs was named Rookie of the Year, before moving on to the Rochester Raging Rhinos.
In 2007, the Islanders were the USL Second Division Champions. They also defeated Major League Soccer team D.C. United 1-0 in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup to reach the quarterfinals, where they subsequently lost to the New England Revolution.
