According to Toyota Stadium’s website, “Opened on August 6, 2005, Toyota Stadium and Toyota Soccer Center is a 145-acre multipurpose sports and entertainment facility located at the intersection of Main Street and Dallas North Tollway in Frisco, Texas.

“It is the home stadium for FC Dallas and hosts the FCS title game, the DXL Frisco Bowl as well a variety of concerts, tournaments and other events.

“The National Soccer Hall of Fame opened in Toyota Stadium’s south end in 2018 as part of a more than $55 million renovation to the facility which includes new locker rooms and two new club spaces.

“The combination of a world-class stadium and a sports park make Toyota Stadium one of the best and most unique soccer facilities in the world. Included in the facility is the 20,500 state-of-the-art pro soccer stadium and 17 tournament-sized fields.”
