The Canton Crusaders is a professional indoor soccer team from Canton, Ohio. The team plays in the American Indoor Soccer League (AISL).

The Canton Crusaders will join the AISL for the 2006-2007 season. A group of Canton business owners, most notably Gus Moncade, own the team. The owners hope to return indoor soccer to Canton. During the 1980s and the early 1990s, Canton served as the home of the Invaders. The Canton Crusaders are scheduled to play its home games in the Canton Civic Center. Two former Invaders, Joe Pavlek and Marcelo Carrera, are to serve as coaches of the Crusaders.
