Sporting KC's manager Peter Vermes will be inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on Oct. 11th at Sporting Park. The ceremony will take place prior to the U.S. Men's National Team World Cup Qualifier against Jamaica.
Vermes was voted into the Hall of Fame from the Veteran ballot. He was a member of the U.S. National that helped transition the U.S. from a team that had not made the World Cup for forty years to a team that has qualified for six straight World Cups. He scored 11 goals in 66 matches with the U.S., helping them qualify for the 1990 World Cup. He was the 1988 U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year in his first duty with the National Team and was the 2000 MLS Defender of the Year when he helped lead the Kansas City Wizards to the MLS Cup Championship.
Joe-Max Moore will be inducted in the same ceremony as Vermes. Current Hall of Famers and the Class of 2013 inductees will also be recognized on the field during the match against Jamaica. The U.S. MNT's match against Jamaica on Oct. 11 is the team's second-to-last match in World Cup Qualifying.
