The Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL) is an indoor soccer league with amateur and semi-professional teams. PASL currently has four divisions across North America. PASL is the official developmental league of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL).

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.[1] The winter league starts in December and ends in March. The summer league runs from May through early August.

PASL is an affiliated member of the Confederación Panamericana de Minifutbol.[2]
