​​​​FRISCO - Frisco City Council approved $39 million in improvements to Toyota Stadium — the home of the FC Dallas franchise in Major League Soccer — that could house the National Soccer Hall of Fame Museum at the south end of the stadium complex.

The city council's measure to amend the lease agreement for Toyota Stadium, opened in 2005, includes the construction of new locker rooms so that access will be from two separate field-level tunnels, an improved media room, an expansion of the suite level, new restrooms, new video boards and audio enhancements.

Plans call for an 80,000-sf building to house the National Soccer Hall of Fame and host large events. FC Dallas and Frisco are looking into attracting a hotel adjacent to the stadium.

Soccer is not the only reason Frisco is bullish on the complex — the new locker rooms will hold 100 football players each.

Toyota Stadium has hosted the NCAA Division I football championship since 2010. The lease agreement will allow Frisco High School to play state playoff games at the stadium. Terms of the agreement call for the Hall of Fame to be housed in Frisco until 2037.
