5/4/11 - The Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) announced today that the Omaha Vipers have joined the league for the 2011-12 season.
The Vipers were an expansion team for the MISL’s 2010-11 season and finished with a 7-13 record under Head Coach Marcelo Fontana, missing the playoffs by one game.
Omaha will continue to play its games at the Omaha Civic Auditorium where they averaged 2,708 last season. The organization was recently purchased by Warren Ferris, who becomes majority owner and President of the team.
"The Vipers have all the makings of a viable franchise in the PASL," said Ferris. "This is a good day for indoor soccer and the fans of the Omaha Vipers."
"The PASL is the place to be right now for arena soccer," said PASL Commissioner Kevin Milliken, "and Omaha is going to be a great addition as we head into our fourth professional season."
The PASL is a professional league which began play on October 25, 2008. The league just completed its third season consisting of US teams, the CMISL (Canada), and the LMFR (Mexico). The Anaheim Bolts, Phoenix Monsoon, Kansas Magic, and Omaha Vipers have been added for the 2011-12 season. The PASL-Premier just completed its 13th season as the nation’s top amateur arena soccer league. The PASL and PASL-Premier are members of Federacion Internacional de Futbol Rapido (FIFRA).
