Ed Fath

Ed Fath (Meritorious Service) - Inducted 2001

  Eddie Fath served soccer in Washington DC for 30 years until he passed away in 1985. He founded the Washington Internationals Soccer Club and Myron Corwell, organized Washington All-Star teams, and staged numerous “soccer events” for the Washington DC area. Fath used his position at the Washington Star and contact with the Baltimore papers to continually promote the game. Fath could rightfully be called “Mr. Soccer” in Washington DC during the period from the mid-1950’s through the mid-1970’s. Also a player, Fath’s strengths were in continually organizing and promoting the game in our area when it was still considered a “foreign sport”.
