The Bob Abbott Cup has been named for US Youth Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, Bob Abbott of Baton Rouge. For more than 30 years, Bob has been committed to youth soccer across Louisiana. As a coach, club officer and former LSA President, Bob embodies the spirit of commitment to the game and to our kids. In addition to his decades of service in Louisiana, Bob has served on the national stage as Chairman of the US Youth Soccer Budget Committee. His distinguished career in youth soccer and his passion for the development of young players state-wide make the Bob Abbott Cup a tournament to honor achievements in player development in Louisiana.

Rainout / Make-up Weekend Refund Policy
*** RAIN OUT POLICY: Should EITHER the Bob Abbott Cup OR the Louisiana Open Cup be rained out in its entirety, the Tournament will be played on the Make-up Weekend. If BOTH the Bob Abbott Cup AND the Louisiana Open Cup are rained out in their entirety, the Bob Abbott Cup will be played on the Make-up Weekend and the Louisiana Open Cup will be canceled. In this scenario, Louisiana Open Cup teams will receive a 75% refund of their entry fee. LSA will endeavor to cancel tournaments on or before the Thursday prior to the tournament so as to give participants and families time to cancel hotel reservations and travel plans.
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.
