Over 15,000 players, managers and spectators are expected to come to the Riverside Sports Complex for the four weekends of the festival of football.

The 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.
