Dallas Cup, Inc. Bids Farewell To Sports Visionary Lamar Hunt
[1932-2006] It is with great sadness, that we say good-bye to Lamar Hunt, a charter investor in the MLS in 1994, an investor in the North American Soccer League, founder of the AFL, credited with coining the term “Super Bowl”, co-founder of the World Championship Tennis circuit in 1967. His vision of the sports industry was respected by us all and some say, because of Lamar, “soccer” is a common household name today, in the United States. He leaves behind his wife, Norma and his four children. He was also the grandfather of 14 grandchildren.
He will be truly missed!
