A special thanks to our long-time friends at Allstate Sugar Bowl for their commitment to amateur athletes across Louisiana and their continued support of Louisiana Soccer Association.

Bob - Odd

The Bob Abbott Cup is named for US Youth Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, Bob Abbott of Baton Rouge. For more than 30 years, Bob served as a coach, club officer and former LSA President, Bob embodies the spirit of commitment to the game and to our kids. The Bob Abbott Cup is for all 11U and 12U teams that competed in the LCSL during the season. As a single weekend tournament it is designed to be a fun and competitive environment. There are no State Champions crowned at the "Bob" so the emphasis can be entirely on player and team performance rather than outcomes. Coaches, players and their parents should use this tournament to measure how far these young players have come in their development over the course of the year. 

Due to the widespread presence of COVID-19 across Louisiana and Governor Edwards' Stay-at-Home Proclamation, the Louisiana State Tournaments have had to be rescheduled and compressed. As the situation in our State is ever-changing, so, too, are our State Tournament plans. As of April 1, 2020 the Bob Abbott Cup will be run as follows:
All 11U and 12U LCSL teams will be invited to a mini-Bob run over 2 weekends. The first weekend will be 11U and the second will be for 12U. Because our State Tournament schedule has been compressed, LSA can only accommodate a limited number of teams. All 11U and 12U LCSL teams are invited, but only the first 8 teams in each age/gender to apply  can be accepted. Teams will be seeded according to league results. The goal is to field 2 4-team brackets in each age/gender. Teams play Round Robin style on Saturday and Sunday morning and the top team from each bracket will play in a final on Sunday afternoon.

Hotels and Accommodations
The Bob Abbott Cup, like all Louisiana Soccer State Tournaments, is a "Stay to Play" tournament. This means all teams participating in "The Bob" that are traveling from beyond a 100 mile radius of the tournament site, must book their accommodations through Anthony Travel. This was done to give our teams and soccer families the best available hotel benefits possible and to ensure all teams receive the protections LSA and Anthony Travel can negotiate with hotels.
