Richmond FC is proud to announce we’ve set a record for entries into our 28th Annual Thanksgiving Weekend Tournament, sponsored by TGS Esports, with a whopping 130+ teams registered to date across all ages. The event, which the city has said brings half a million dollars of business to Richmond every year, is positively bursting at the seams, with entries from far and wide and a load of new sponsors.

Big thanks must go to our administrator, Tania Webster, who has put in long hours stick handling the registrations, organizing volunteers, and scheduling fields. We literally couldn’t put on the event without her. If you’d like to join the list of tournament sponsors, or have some spare time that weekend that you can use to volunteer, please contact

RFC teams receive free entry to the event and will no doubt enjoy the chance to connect with teams from afar after long months of COVID restrictions.

This year, as an entertainment bonus to all participants, our tournament sponsors at The Gaming Stadium are offering players and teams discounted entry to the Pinnacle 2021 Esports Festival at the Vancouver Convention Centre from October 8-10, including a live Nation Extreme Wrestling family-friendly pro wrestling event on the Saturday night from 7pm featuring superstars EL Phantasmo and Josh Alexander. For the price of one ticket, you get access to the entire weekend festival, plus two wrestling events (a second event happens at 11am Sunday), right in downtown Vancouver.
