The Omaha Vipers were a professional indoor soccer team that began play in the MISL in the 2010-11 season. Based in Omaha, Nebraska, the Vipers played their home games at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.[1][2] Following their inaugural season, the Vipers had planned moving from Major Indoor Soccer League to the Professional Arena Soccer League for the 2011-12 season and paid the league's $25,000 franchise fee, but the team folded in October 2011 when they were unable to secure an arena for the upcoming season.[3]
