The 2012–13 Cincinnati Kings season was the fifth season of the Cincinnati Kings professional indoor soccer club. The Kings, an Eastern Division team and charter member of the Professional Arena Soccer League, played their home games at the GameTime Training Center in Fairfield, Ohio. The team was led by general manager Tim Burgess.

Season summary[edit]

The Kings were successful in the regular season, amassing an 11–5 record and placing second in the PASL's Eastern Division. The team qualified for the postseason and earned the right to play for the Ron Newman Cup in the PASL National Championship. The Kings lost both Eastern Division Finals games to the Detroit Waza and were eliminated from the postseason.[2]
