How the National Soccer Hall of Fame found a new home

After a hiatus of nearly eight years, the National Soccer Hall of Fame reopened in November, finding an innovative new home at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, TX.

From concept to opening day, the project required collaboration, investment and the effort of many. FC Dallas owners Clark and Dan Hunt led the way, furthering the soccer legacy of their father, Lamar Hunt, who died in 2006.

FC Dallas, the City of Frisco, Frisco Independent School District and U.S. Soccer Federation partnered to bring the Hunt brothers’ vision to life in the first major sports hall of fame integrated with a stadium. The NSHOF Experience connects the past, present and future of the sport through more than 400 artifacts and 13 interactive exhibits in a 19,350 square foot space.
