“The opportunity to work with the Lewisville CVB was an outstanding experience. Our soccer tournament was a success thanks to the deep involvement of the city’s employees supporting our event and promoting soccer… Every detail regarding our 48 youth team soccer tournament was taken care of with a very high level of professionalism. From the GLASA fields (which are in perfect condition) to advice in security, traffic assistance and first aid; at all times we felt a true partner relationship with the city of Lewisville and the Lewisville CVB…would I go back to Lewisville? Yes, can’t wait for the new soccer complex.”
