The team worked hard to put together the 2021 event, once covid restrictions were eased. The August event was a great success with teams, managers, parents and spectators all happy to be back playing tournament football again.
The 2022 event will see the U17 boys and girls age groups extended to U18’s allowing more teams the opportunity to play at the Nationals. Along with 13 other age groups we are looking forward to attracting upwards of 400 teams to compete from across Great Britain and abroad all looking to leave Nottingham as Nationals 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 ACES Nationals team.
Fully sanctioned by the Football Association (2022 tournament pending), the event is an exciting date in the junior football calendar for both boys and girls teams of 15 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 ACES Nationals title.
