We are very excited to announce that the 2023 Robbie Festival and Tournament is now accepting team registrations for the 2023 Festival and Tournament. Many club teams and organizations have participated in the Robbie year after year raising over $1.7 million since 1967 as we work to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research in Canada. We truly appreciate your support. We hope we can count on your continued involvement in 2023! Please click here to register for the 2023 Festival and/or Tournament.

Our festival and tournament in 2022 raised over $20,000.00 for Cystic Fibrosis and was successful due to your participation. We did receive feedback that some teams experienced administrative and/or logistical challenges in participating that made the experience less enjoyable than normal. We take that feedback seriously, as we want and expect The Robbie to be at the top of every team’s list to play in every year. As such, we have made changes to our processes this year and we feel that the 2023 Robbie Festival and Tournament will be better than ever for all involved.

We are also looking for volunteers to support our festival and tournament. If you are interested in being a field convenor, or assisting with set-up and takedown on weekends, or assisting with the registration of teams on game days, or simply being a member of our Committee, please call 289-314-5588. Come join our team and assist in making The Robbie a great Festival and Tournament.

Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to see you on the pitch this summer!

Sincerely,

Ron Smale
Director / Chairperson
The Robbie International Soccer Tournament
