The Tallahassee Scorpions were an American professional indoor soccer team based in Tallahassee, Florida, that played in the EISL during both of the league's seasons from 1997 to 1998.[1] They played their home games at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center.[2][3]

During their existence, the Scorpions played a total of 52 regular season games, winning 28 (one via shootout) and losing 25. They scored a total of 705 goals and allowed a total of 577 goals and notched 80 total points in standings out of a possible 156 points.[4] (The EISL awarded 3 points for a win, 2 for a shootout win, 1 for a shootout loss, and 0 for a loss in regulation.)[5]

The team won one division title but failed to advance past that in the first season and had a losing record in its second and final season.[4] The team ceased operations after the league collapsed in late December 1998.
