Latest News: What Happened At The Robbie?


The Robbie International Soccer Tournament is the world’s largest youth soccer event with proceeds donated to charity. 2005 marks $1 Million in total donations to Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Muscular Dystrophy Canada. We celebrated that achievement in February with our Million $ Gala attended by almost 400 people. The Robbie made presentations of this year’s donations to CCFF and MDC at the News Conference on Thursday June 30th at the Delta Hotel. Our host for the News Conference was Gerry Dobson, host of Sportsnet’s Soccer Central. There we gave thanks to the Ontario Referees who have been our number one sponsor over the past 39 years, to the dedicated committee of volunteers who work hard all year round to make this wonderful tournament successful, and to the many volunteers who work hard each year during the tournament to make sure things run smoothly. All together, this year was a great success, and the Robbie would like to thank all volunteers, sponsors, media, participants and their families, and supporters of this great event!


Over the years teams from 28 countries and from most Canadian provinces have participated in the Robbie. The tradition continued in 2005. Leading the overseas contingent this year was the Boys U-12 team from Hajduk Split, Croatia who left Canada as Robbie Champions this year. Adding some flare to the Boys U-14 division this year, a team travelled all the way from Bermuda, the P.H.C. Zebras.
Teams from the United States have always represented strongly at the Robbie. This year Buffalo United competed in both the Boys U-13 and Boys U-14 divisions. The Boys U-16 division boasted three U.S. teams: Missouri’s Metro’74, Valley United Juventus from Minnesota and the Hockessin Blast from Delaware. Minnesota’s Invergrove Heat competed strongly in the Girls U-18 division, and the Buccaneers from Greece (Rochester), New York competed in the Girls U-11 division playing 9 v 9. Twelve teams from Quebec travelled to see what Toronto had to offer while challenging for Robbie championships in the Girls U-11, U-16, and U-18 divisions, and the all the Boys divisions except U-10. They were successful in bringing home one Robbie Championship and two Finalist trophies!!!
Thank you to all travelling teams: our neighbours in the US, Bermuda, Croatia, Quebec, and all teams travelling from across Ontario. We hope to have you again next year!


Each year we celebrate the fact that international teams travel so far to participate in the tournament, but let us not forget why they are coming; the talent in Toronto and neighbouring cities/towns is phenomenal!!! Each year we have over one hundred teams from the GTA, Durham and our neighbouring cities combined, participating in our tournament. This year, local teams took home 6 of the 14 championships, and were finalists in 6 divisions! It is a true test of talent and dedication to be successful in the Robbie, and we would like to encourage all the local talent to keep up the great work! We hope you continue to support the Robbie in changing the lives of those diagnosed with CF and MD, by playing excellent soccer, and showing great sportsmanship. Thank you.
