The Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL) is an indoor soccer league with mostly semi-professional teams; along with a number of amateur teams accross 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 typically starts in December and ends in March. The summer league runs from May through early August.

PASL is an affiliated member of the Pan-American Minifootball Federation and the World Minifootball Federatio. In 2021, the PASL entered into a cooperative partnership with Major Arena Soccer League 2 (MASL2).[3]
