Tour of a Lifetime : Founding

Lamar Hunt co-founded the United Soccer Association (later the North American Soccer League) in 1967, and established the Dallas Tornado Soccer Club with his business partner Bill McNutt. Hunt was a savvy businessman and knew that for this soccer league to be successful there needed to be an enthusiastic fan base. To create some buzz around American soccer, it was decided that the Dallas Tornado Soccer Club would embark on a tour around the world, playing against major teams in Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Islands.
