The National Soccer Hall of Fame is set to open in Frisco on Oct. 20 and give soccer fans worldwide an educational experience of the game of soccer in a technology-driven experience. It first opened in Oneonta, N.Y. on June 12, 1999, but closed permanently a decade later on Feb. 10, 2010. Five years later in September of 2015, it was announced that the Hunt family, the owners of FC Dallas, would be bringing the museum to Frisco. The FC Dallas owners, Clark and Dan Hunt, have a strong connection to the National Soccer Hall of Fame, because their father Lamar was inducted into the hall of fame in 1982.
Imagine Dragons, a rock band from Las Vegas, Nev., are known for the songs "It's Time", "Radioactive", "Demons" and "I Bet My Life." In 2014, they won the Grammy award for best rock performance for "Radioactive."
This will be an exciting weekend for FC Dallas as well. They will have their Major League Soccer regular season home finale on Oct. 21 against Sporting Kansas City (tickets). Also that day there will be a North American Soccer League veterans game.
FC Dallas next plays host to the Seattle Sounders FC. For tickets, please click here.
