For every given $\beta<0$, we study the problem of maximizing the first Robin eigenvalue of the Laplacian $\lambda_\beta(\Omega)$ among convex (not necessarily smooth) sets $\Omega\subset\mathbb{S}^{n}$ with fixed perimeter. In particular, denoting by $\sigma_n$ the perimeter of the $n$-dimensional hemisphere, we show that for fixed perimeters $P<\sigma_n$, geodesic balls maximize the eigenvalue. Moreover, we prove a quantitative stability result for this isoperimetric inequality in terms of volume difference between $\Omega$ and the ball $D$ of the same perimeter.
