About the Omaha Kings FC

The Omaha Kings FC are the only Men’s Professional Arena Soccer team in the state of Nebraska, proudly representing the Major Arena Soccer League at the 2nd and 3rd levels.  The club embodies a grassroots focus, consisting of mostly local talent seeking pathways to play soccer professionally.  Launching in 2019 in the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL), the Kings built a huge momentum making the jump to M3 for the 2020-2021 season. During the 20/21 M3 season, our local and hungry talent exceeded expectations, prompting the MASL to invite them to play a provisional year at the M2 level. In just two short years of its existence, the club now houses 2 men’s teams, playing at the professional level (M2) and semi-professional level (M3) in the Major Arena Soccer League pyramid. The Kings wrapped up their M3 inaugural season bringing home the first ever National Championship title in the history of the M3 Arena Soccer League. The M2 team finished out their provisional season with a 6-8 record, rallying 5 straight wins through the latter half and missing the wildcard playoff spot by just one match. 

The club was founded and is operated by Argentinian native Emmanuel Viel and his wife, Omaha native, Natalie Viel (Troutman).  Serving as General Manager is Carlos Viel, a former professional soccer player from Necochea, Argentina.  Leading the team is head coach and Bellevue native, Brian Locke.
