The Monterrey Flash, is a Mexican professional indoor soccer team based in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. Founded in 2011 as part of the Liga Mexicana de Futbol Rapido Profesional (LMFRPro), the team made its debut in the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL)[1] with the 2013–14 season. The team plays its home games at the Arena Monterrey.

When it entered the PASL, the Monterrey Flash became the third Mexican team to be part of the US-based league, joining the Tijuana-based Toros Mexico[1] and Saltillo Rancho Seco. With the Toros not part of the re-branded Major Arena Soccer League, both Mexico-based teams were in the new Southern Division along with four teams based in Texas for 2014–15.
