Some of the best soccer talent from around the region will descend on Lafayette next year during the 2015 Presidents Cup. Tuesday, it was announced that the Lafayette Youth Soccer Association/Cajun Soccer Club will host the regional soccer tournament, which will be held at Moore Park.

“For years, Lafayette has produced some of the best soccer players in the state,” says Michael Ritch, Executive Director of Lafayette Youth Soccer Association and Cajun Soccer Club. “We are thrilled to finally have facilities at Moore Park which allow us to host a youth tournament of national significance.”

States within the region, which spans from North Carolina to Texas, bid on the sites each year. Alabama will host this year’s tournament.
