Srbijada is the common name for the Annual Serbian North American Soccer Tournament. The tournament is held every year in North America during Labor Day weekend.

The Tournament[edit]

Every year, the tournament is held in a new city and has a new host club. By 2011, 19 consecutive tournaments were held. In 2012 the 20th tournament was held in Paterson, New Jersey on August 31 through September 3. The first Srbijada was held in 1993. The tournament took place in Windsor, Ontario; and the hosting club was Windsor Serbs.

During Srbijada, four competitions are held. Tournaments are held in open, over 30 and over 40 categories, and the latest addition was the over 50 division. Both open and over 30 categories have been in existence since the beginning of the tournament, while over 40 category was added to the tournament program in 1998.

This tournament is very similar to the Karadjordje Cup which takes place in Australia.

Purpose of the tournament[edit]

  • To establish a traditional annual sporting event for Serbs in North America
  • To promote the game of soccer among Serbian athletes
  • To bring Serbian people from different Serbian communities together
  • To enhance and promote the Serbian name across North America
  • To financially help the hosting team
  • To expand the athletic competition to other disciplines
