Current season

Chicago Mustangs is an American professional indoor soccer team based at the Sears Centre in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates, Illinois. They play in the Central Division[1] of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL).

The PASL awarded the expansion franchise on September 25, 2012.[2] The team was originally coached by Narciso "Chicho" Cuevas until he was replaced on the bench late in the 2012–13 season by team owner Armando Gamboa.

The Mustangs won the PASL Championship in the 2013-14 season. They were undefeated in the regular season, setting a PASL record of 202 goals in a season. They earned the right to host the Final Four of the Ron Newman Cup playoffs, which they also claimed. They defeated the Cleveland Freeze 10-3 in the semifinals before stopping Hidalgo La Fiera 14-5 in the Newman Cup Final. That victory also earned the U.S. Open Championship title.
