The history of the Wichita Wings begins on August 21, 1979 when the organization was admitted to the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) as an expansion team. In the Teams first 13 seasons in the MISL the Wichita Wings qualified for the Semifinals 9 different times and posted some of the best season records in United States indoor soccer history.
After the 1991-1992 season the MISL folded and the Wichita Wings joined the National Professional Soccer League (NPSL). The Wings played in the NPSL for 9 years, qualifying for the playoffs in 8 of the 9 seasons. After the 2000-2001 season the Wichita Wings organization folded, ending a 22 year tradition. At the time, the Wings were the oldest professional soccer franchise in the United States.
For 22 years the Wings played out of the Kansas Coliseum, and although the team came close on several occasions, they never reached a League Championship Game. The Wings held 8 MISL or NPSL individual recognition League Award Winners including notable former Wings players like 2 time Defender of the Year Kim Rontved, MVP Erik Rasmussen, and Pass Master Hernan “Chico” Borja.
On March 4, 2011 it was announced that Wink Hartman would be reviving The Wichita Wings franchise to play in the previously reformed MISL. The Team, now playing out of Hartman Arena, will start a 24 game season this upcoming November, playing against MISL teams The Baltimore Blast, Milwaukee Wave, Missouri Comets, Norfolk SharX, Rochester Lancers, and The Syracuse Silver Knights.
