Nothing is confirmed, but it looks like there might be NASL play in Oklahoma City after all. This afternoon, Alamo Soccer reached out to @OklahomaCityFC on Twitter wondering about the status of their men's team *scheduled* to make their appearance in the North American Soccer League for the 2016 season.
All indications from the league's headquarters have suggested that OKC was not going to join the league. When Miami FC and Puerto Rico FC were announced as expansion teams earlier this summer, the league said, "Puerto Rico FC will be the NASL’s 13th club after the league recently added Miami FC." In addition, the team logos (OKC & Virginia) had already been removed from the league's website. These were big indications that OKC and Virginia had been pushed aside and more than likely would never join the league.
While this is all still speculation, the response gives us the sense that OKC and the league have been secretly working behind closed doors to get the team on the field.
Will OKC be playing in the NASL in 2016 or beyond? ASC will keep you updated on this story as we learn more about it.

ASC has done some more searching in the Twittershpere and found a tweet from Sold Out Strategies Co-Owner, Brad Lund, saying that he's hoping for good news in the coming weeks.
Taking this with a grain of salt is necessary. NASL fans and OKC fans have heard multiple times that good news is around the corner, unfortunately that corner seems to be endless.
We will keep our eye out for any more indications on the future of the NASL in Oklahoma City.
