The Harrisburg Heat are an American professional indoor soccer team based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The team is a part of the Major Arena Soccer League. The Heat's home venue is the Large Arena at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center.[1][2]

The Harrisburg Heat claim the heritage of an original Harrisburg Heat franchise that was a member of the National Professional Soccer League, which later became the Major Indoor Soccer League.[3][4] On May 2, 2012, the Heat were awarded a PASL expansion franchise to begin with the 2012–13 season.[1][5][6]

The original Harrisburg Heat played their home matches at the Large Arena during their 12 seasons of existence.[7]
