In June 2013, the Wichita Wings of the MISL folded but a successor corporation named FC Wichita LLC announced their intention to join the PASL for the 2013–14 season. The name and home arena for the Wichita, Kansas, based team were not immediately announced. On July 10, the team announced that it secured a lease at Hartman Arena but now planned to delay joining the PASL until the 2014–15 season.
On July 23, the PASL announced that a different ownership group had secured a Hartman Arena lease and the franchise to play in Wichita for the 2013–14 season. On August 22, team owner Joseph Pindell announced that it will play as the "Wichita B-52s" to honor the city's aviation heritage. (More than 700 Boeing B-52 Stratofortress aircraft were built in Wichita.) The team's blue and orange official colors reflect the colors of the original Wichita Wings. Indoor soccer veteran Larry Inlow serves as head coach.
