City of Shreveport & CABOSA to Partner on Multi-Million Dollar Soccer Project

The City of Shreveport will join the Caddo and Bossier Soccer Association for a major announcement tomorrow at Cargill Sports Complex.

A press conference will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, July 20, at Cargill Park, 2800 Cargill Drive, to announce a joint project that will expand the sport of soccer in this community.

“We are excited about this public-private partnership with CABOSA that will allow for even more upgrades at the park,” said Mayor Ollie Tyler. “We are looking forward to the added sense of community this park will provide for our citizens.”

The City of Shreveport will provide the property and maintenance for the multi-million dollar expansion of the additional soccer fields.

“It’s going to be a welcomed relationship with the public and private sector joining forces,” said Gary McCormick, CABOSA’s Executive Director. “We’re very excited about this opportunity to continue and expand the game of soccer.”

The partnership between the City and CABOSA goes back to when the first 13 fields were constructed in 2001-2002.
