National Soccer Hall of Fame
The U.S. Soccer Federation partnered with FC Dallas, the City of Frisco and Frisco ISD to establish the new National Soccer Hall of Fame at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Construction on the 24,000 square foot museum and event center began in 2016 and was completed by October 2018.
Built at the south end at Toyota Stadium, the National Soccer Hall of Fame is the first major sport hall of fame to be located within a stadium. The Hall of Fame houses more than 400 prized artifacts, including the three U.S.A. Women’s FIFA World Cup trophies. The experience also features NEC’s state-of-the-art, NeoFace® facial recognition software, virtual skills challenges and more. Get to know the sport’s current champions and historic figures, test your trivia knowledge and “insert yourself” into iconic photos from U.S. soccer history.
The unprecedented endeavor is fitting for a stadium built by the late Lamar Hunt, who has been widely celebrated for his pioneering ways across American sports and is a member of 13 halls of fame. A 1982 inductee into the National Soccer Hall of Fame, Hunt received their Medal of Honor in 1999, making him one of only three individual recipients of the prestigious award in history. The honor was also granted to the 1991 Women’s National Team, which won the inaugural Women’s World Cup.
