There’s an old saying that goes, “Champions are made, not born.” They’re made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream and a vision.

It’s also said that champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the time spent preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character. We understand the championship mentality. We also understand, as your city host, that our goal is to make your experience a memorable one. One that compliments the journey.

With a central location, world-class facilities, first-class accommodations, a family-oriented atmosphere and one of the most unique cultural experiences in the country, Lafayette, LA is the ideal place to host your next sports event. We invite you to learn more by taking a closer look at our sports facilities. Here, you will find your venue. Here, you will find your field of dreams.
