About: Tour of a Lifetime

7 months. 45 soccer games. 26 countries. 5 continents. The Dallas Tornado World Tour of 1967-68 was legendary, and UNT Special Collections is pleased to display an exhibit of soccer mementos to tell that story, and commemorate the 50th anniversary.


This exhibit was created with the help of Sonja Kap Jordan-Mowery, Bob Kap's daughter.

A special thank you goes out to members of the Dallas Tornado Soccer Club 1967-68, who were so generous in sharing their stories.

Object photography by Megan Gellner.

Scanning by Ana Niño, Adriance Rhoades, and Erika Suarez.
