Sunflower State FC’s leadership team, Andrew Lentell and Joey Lipoff, shared a unified statement regarding the club’s move; “Sunflower State FC is excited to announce our entry into MASL 3 for the 2020 – 2021 season.  The MASL has a proven tradition of the best arena soccer competition and we are excited to be part of this next chapter.  

We look forward to the great opportunities that the MASL 3 will bring for our players and our club.  The Heartland has a wealth of soccer talent and this new opportunity will help to further showcase player talent across the region.” 

The fast-paced and fun atmosphere that indoor soccer brings will no doubt be a great addition to the Omaha community…

“Joining the MASL 3, and to be part of the first year of its formation is a very exciting venture for the Omaha Kings FC”, stated Kings owner, Emmanuel Viel.  “We have tremendous, and often overlooked, local talent in this community, and as a first generation immigrant and owner, it has always been my dream to help provide more opportunities in the pro-soccer arena for these kids.  With one successful year as an indoor semi-pro team already on record, joining the MASL 3 as forged the path for us to grow into M2 and M1, providing even more opportunities for local talent to go pro in the future.  The fast-paced and fun atmosphere that indoor soccer brings will no doubt be a great addition to the Omaha community, and the Omaha Kings are proud to be a part of this.”
