The Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL-Pro) is an North American indoor soccer league recognized by FIFRA (Federation International Futbal Rapido Association).[citation needed]

October 2008 marked the debut of the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL-Pro) as an offshoot of the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL-Premier), the nation's largest amateur league, and has affiliated with the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League (CMISL) and Liga Mexicana de Fútbol Rápido (LMFR).

The PASL-Pro does not use multi-point scoring. Prior to the season, the CMISL teams also agreed to use single-point scoring. Previously they had one-point goals and three-point goals for shots behind the arc.

The PASL-Pro is an affiliated member of the FIFRA (Federation International Futbal Rapido Association).
