The National Soccer Hall of Fame will feature a variety of soccer-inspired design elements, including a sculptural art installation that drapes above the main entrance located on Main Street in Frisco, TX. This scarf motif offers artistic connections to exhibit spaces that will be featured throughout the Hall of Fame.
“The Main Street design harkens back to the history and tradition of soccer around the world,” said FC Dallas president Dan Hunt. “We are thrilled to bring the most important soccer museum in North America to Frisco, TX.”
Other project highlights include:
- A 24,750 square-foot roof structure that will cover almost 3,000 premium seats
- Expanded, multiuse game day locker rooms featuring 200 lockers
- Two field-level player tunnels that allow teams to exit separately through fan areas
- The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Bar – a club space with casual food and beverage options that overlooks the glass-enclosed press conference area and locker room exit tunnels
- Banquet space in the Hall of Fame club area which provides an elevated food and beverage experience that can accommodate seated events up to 700 guests
- 3,000 square-foot specialty store that will also offer soccer-specific merchandise
- 1,389 square feet of additional video boards, including two in-stadium boards, which will increase the Toyota Stadium video board footprint to approximately 7,512 square feet or slightly larger than two NBA-regulation basketball courts
“We’d like to thank FC Dallas and the Hunt family for all their hard work and dedication during this process,” said U.S. Soccer CEO/Secretary General Dan Flynn. “We’re excited about the progress that’s been made in these early stages, and we’re looking forward to seeing the continued development of the National Soccer Hall of Fame over the next year.”
