The Major Arena Soccer League announced today that the Mesquite Outlaws will be participating in the MASL 2022-23 season after being inactive for the prior two seasons.

The team, owned by Mehrdad Moayedi, will be resuming MASL play for the first time since the pandemic halted its inaugural season in 2019-20. Tatu, the legendary indoor soccer champion and coach, will return as head coach of the team. Sagu and Nick Stavrou, also will return as goalkeepers coach and assistant coach, respectively, creating a triple threat of leadership for the team.  

The Outlaws averaged 5.2 goals per game during its inaugural season and defeated cross-town rivals the Dallas Sidekicks three of the four times the teams met. Games are known for being true family-fun experiences, with fans celebrating with players and coaches on the field after every game.

“It was a tough decision to sit out the last two MASL seasons, so we’re excited to bring the Mesquite Outlaws back for the ’22-’23 season,” said Outlaws owner Moayedi. “We’re confident our fan base will be equally as eager to return to games, and with our powerhouse of a coaching staff, we’re looking forward to a successful season.”

Located in Mesquite, Texas the team will play and operate in the Mesquite Arena. Only 15 minutes from Downtown Dallas the Mesquite Arena is a 6,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Mesquite, Texas and is also home to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo.

“We are happy to welcome back the Mesquite Outlaws to the MASL, who bring back with them one of the icons of indoor soccer in their Head Coach Tatu,” said Commissioner Keith Tozer. “They are also a great geographic fit with our Midwest area clubs and will only enhance the rivalries in that division.”
