The Acadiana region is expected to see a huge economic loss due to Covid-19 and a severe downturn in the oil and gas industry, but this news story from KLFY News 10 that features Ben Berthelot, President & CEO of Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission verifies the tremendous impact sports and tourism have on our region and our economy in South Louisiana.
Angie Eckman, Owner & President of ADWORX stated, “I have believed this since I began working with the Youngsville Sports Complex in 2013. The vision to become a first class sports and recreational facility has remained consistent from day one. Youth sports brings a great quality of life for our residents and the sports tournaments help bring visitors and their families to South Louisiana and many of them have never experienced our Cajun culture.” The Youngsville Sports Complex also serves as a tremendous economic driver to bring businesses to the city of Youngsville, Louisiana. Youth sports is not only a huge economic driver in Youngsville, LA, but across the country as well.
