Omaha Trip to Amarillo will Determine Final Playoff Position for M2’s Championship Weekend

TAMPA, Fla. — The Omaha Kings come into this weekend’s game on a four-game Major Arena Soccer League 2 win streak.

June 18, 2021  |  Written by Andrew Ross  |  m2soccer.com

The reward for making it four in a row will be an invitation to the M2 playoffs next month in Wichita.

The Kings will travel to Amarillo for a 4 p.m. (CST) start against the Bombers, the lone game on the M2 docket this weekend. But it couldn’t have higher stakes.

An Omaha win clinches the fourth and final playoff M2 playoffs spot for the 2021 season. However, if Amarillo prevails, the Chicao Mustangs will slide into the final spot for “Championship Weekend” which will be held July 17 and 18 at Hartman Arena in Wichita.

An Omaha win clinches the fourth and final M2 playoffs spot for the 2021 season. However, if Amarillo prevails, the Chicago Mustangs will slide into the final spot for “Championship Weekend”…

Amarillo, along with Wichita and Cleveland have already secured their playoff spots by winning the Rocky Mountain Invitational, Heartland Invitation and Great Lakes Invitational series of games held earlier this season.

With final standings based on winning percentage for 2021 only since all teams are not able to play the same number of games, Omaha would finish its season 7-7. Chicago, which has already completed its regular season at 5-5, also sits at .500. However, based on head to head results, with Omaha taking two of three matchups against the Mustangs this season, the Kings would earn the final post-season spot.

Amarillo is led by Vitor Patriani, who has 19 points in seven games, while the Kings high flying offense is paced by Ali Sodal, second overall in the league in scoring with 25 points, including 19 goals.

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.
