MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] FC Dallas named MLS executive Doug Quinn as its president and chief executive officer. Quinn, who will begin his tenure with the club Aug. 2, served as president of MLS affiliate Soccer United Marketing, the leading commercial soccer company in North America. The move is intended to turn around one of the most under performing teams at the gate.

“We are thrilled to welcome Doug to FC Dallas, and look forward to his leadership of the club for many years to come,” said Clark Hunt, chairman of Hunt Sports Group, which operates FC Dallas. “As one of the top executives in professional sports, I am confident that Doug will make FC Dallas the premier club in MLS for our fans and enhance Pizza Hut Park’s standing as one of the elite entertainment venues in the country.”

Quinn spent 14 years with the National Football League in a number of senior management, marketing and sales positions. He joined SUM in May 2004, developing the current business model for SUM and MLS special events.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to lead FC Dallas and honored to be a part of the tremendous soccer heritage of North Texas,” Quinn said. “The Hunt family’s commitment to soccer in the United States paved the way for the success of MLS, and I look forward to building a world-class, championship club for our supporters.”
