The Tournament

50+ Years & Counting

The Croatian National Soccer Tournament of Canada & USA is a soccer tournament that was established in 1964 featuring Member Clubs of the CNSF from across North America. It is overseen by the Croatian National Soccer Federation of Canada & USA and hosted annually by a CNSF Member Club. Clubs are put at the bottom of hosting rotation upon membership of the CNSF.

 

The Tournament is traditionally played on Labor Day weekend to accommodate teams who have to travel long distances. The event attracts large Croatian crowds and is intended to allow each host club to gain financially so that they can maintain stability and promote the Croatian name in their respective cities. This years CNSF Tournament will be hosted in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada by CNSF Member Kitchener Hrvat.
