About Pitchero ACES Nationals

Pitchero ACES Nationals kicked off in Leicester in 2009, hosting 20 league champions from 20 different towns and cities all competing for the National title.

The competition now welcomes 296 teams across Great Britain and abroad, all looking to leave Nottingham as National Champions.

The vision of the event has always been about attracting the best of the best in junior grassroots football. Because of this, teams have to be invited to the tournament specifically by the Pitchero ACES Nationals team.


Fully sanctioned by the Football Association, the event is an exciting date in the junior football calendar for both boys and girls teams of 11 different age groups.


The youth tournament is ultimately a celebration of junior football. It’s a fantastic opportunity for teams to showcase a range of young talent in an exciting battle for the Pitchero ACES Nationals title.

It’s also a great networking tool for managers and coaches to present their teams on a national scale in a friendly and safe environment.


This year, the soccer tournament will be held at the University of Nottingham over the weekends of 17th, 18th, 24th, 25th June and 1st and 2nd July 2017, in 11 different age groups.
