The Missouri Athletic Club organization was founded in 1903. It played an important role in 1904 as it housed dignitaries during the World’s Fair and the Summer Olympics. The present home for MAC opened in 1916, after the first one burned down in 1914. Men were only allowed to join the club until 1988. The organization awards the highest honor in college soccer, known as the Hermann Trophy.
