The Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL) is an indoor soccer league with mostly semi-professional teams; along with a number of amateur teams. PASL currently has four divisions across North America. The PASL was previously known as the Federation of Sports Arenas (FSA).[1] The PASL logo formerly belonged to what is now the Major Arena Soccer League.

Teams play in regional competition to keep travel costs to a minimum. The champion of each region then compete in a playoff tournament to decide the league champion.

PASL currently runs a men's winter and summer league as well as women's summer league.[2] The winter league starts in December and ends in March. The summer league runs from May through early August.

PASL was an affiliated member of the Confederación Panamericana de Minifutbol until 2020.[3] In 2021, the PASL entered into a cooperative partnership with Major Arena Soccer League 2 (M2), bringing the league into the confederation of the World Minifootball Federation.[4]
