The Robbie is pleased to announce Toronto FC as Presenting Sponsor for The Robbie Festival events June 23rd & 24th.
Toronto FC is pleased to be able to provide support to The Robbie in their efforts to promote soccer and to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
TFC will be bringing their MLS Cup Trophy Tour and Pioneer Community TFC Kick Zone to The Robbie’s U8, U9 & U10 girls and boys divisions playing at Wexford Park / Ashtonbee Park. The Robbie expects to be able to announce in the coming weeks other special activities for this year’s U8-U12 Festival.
“We are very pleased to receive continuing support from Toronto FC,” said Robbie Chair Mike Ellis. “The Robbie is known in many parts of the world as a premier youth soccer event and our association with MLS Champions Toronto FC is a good fit,” added Ellis.
Current and former TFC players such as Jordan Hamilton, Jay Chapman, and Dwayne De Rosario participated in The Robbie. Jordan and DeRo as well as Canadian Women’s player Diana Matheson were multiple time champions.
The Robbie is a “Designated Festival & Tournament” by Ontario Soccer.
