The National Soccer Hall of Fame at Toyota Stadium will be a museum that honors the past while fully incorporating modern technology of the present and future. It will feature interactive exhibits, iconic soccer memorabilia and serve as the home for Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. It will be located in Toyota Stadium’s south end zone, making it the first major league sports hall of fame to be built within a stadium.
Part of a $40 million renovation at Toyota Stadium, the National Soccer Hall of Fame is a public-private partnership among FC Dallas, the City of Frisco, Frisco Independent School District and U.S. Soccer Federation.
The National Soccer Hall of Fame was first located in Oneonta, NY and known as the National Soccer Museum from 1979-2010. It became known as the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 1983. The facility closed in February of 2010.
In 2013, FC Dallas owners, Clark and Dan Hunt launched a campaign to bring the Hall of Fame to Frisco. Their father, Lamar Hunt, was inducted in the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 1982. In 1999, he received the Hall’s highest honor, the Medal of Honor. He remains one of only three individuals to have won the award.
