R+L Carriers, Chappapeela partner for Dec. 8 soccer shootout
The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl and Chappapeela Sports Park announced their partnership to create the 3v3 Soccer Shootout on December 8, at Chappapeela Sports Park in Hammond.

Craig Forshag, Director of Group Sales for the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl shares why he described the partnership with Chappapeela as “an excellent opportunity for both organizations.”

Forshag said, “Developing local sporting events for Louisiana’s youth, while exposing the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl to residents, fulfills two of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation’s organization values.”

Chappapeela Sports Park is well-known in the area for hosting a multitude of sporting events. CSP’s Deputy Director Amber Grose explains why it is essential to host the event during soccer’s offseason.

“3v3 soccer is arguably the most skill demanding style of soccer,” said Grose. “The fields and goals are small, but the fun-factor is huge.”

The $150 entry fee payment includes free T-shirts for each player, free New Orleans Bowl Football Tickets, access to the 3 v 3 soccer games, and access to local dining options.

“Participants will have a guaranteed full stomach throughout the course of the day with our local businesses coming and selling food,” said Grose. “I’m not sure how much better it can get.”

The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl will provide a ticket to the 2018 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl on December 15th, 2018 at 8:00pm in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and a custom tournament T-shirt to all Shootout participants.

In addition to the game ticket and shirt, each participate will take part in the Bowl Games Halftime Show as a member of the Parade of Athletes.
Chappapeela Sports Park would like to express their gratitude to all parents, family members, and friends for the partnership by offering them $10 discounted tickets.

Those seeking general admission and group prices will also be accommodated with available discounted tickets.

Athletes can register to be a part of the halftime show and obtain additional tickets for family and friends by visiting
