About the Major Arena Soccer League
The Major Arena Soccer League represents the highest level of professional arena soccer in the world. The MASL is a 4 tier pyramid league consisting of professional and semi-professional men’s arena soccer teams. The Omaha Kings play at the professional level in the MASL 2 (second tier), backed by the Major Arena Soccer League (top tier). The remaining pyramid consists of the M3 (third tier and semi-pro), and the PASL (fourth tier and amateur). The Omaha Kings FC launched in 2019 playing at the PASL level, in which they then proceeded to make the jump to M3 for the 2020 – 2021 season. During the recent M3 season, the Kings local and hungry talent exceeded expectations, prompting the MASL to invite them to play a provisional year at the M2 level. They are currently finishing out their (pushed back due to Covid) season, and are proud to represent the Major Arena Soccer League with teams residing in both the M2 and M3 levels.
