2020 Tournament – cancelled due to covid 19

It is with regret and sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of this years’ ACES Nationals Tournament – Teams who have already paid their entry fee will be offered a full refund.

The 2019 tournament saw over 360 teams attend over four weekends in June. Extended to 15 age groups, over 15,000 players, managers and spectators attended making it the biggest Nationals ever. The 2020 tournament is planned to yet again be even bigger and better!!

The Pitchero ACES Nationals team work hard together throughout the year to identify the nation’s most successful teams both boys and girls, before sending out invites to their respective clubs, ensuring the highest quality teams entering the event get the call-up. The event has a strict rule which only allows local league footballers to participate, therefore academy or school of excellence players are not allowed to enter. For further information please see Entry Criteria and Rules

Due to the high level of local talent on the pitch, scouts from professional clubs across the premier and football league will be scattered around the event on the lookout for potential stars.
