ACF is currently soliciting bids to host ACF Nationals 2020. To bid, please fill out this form. For any questions, please contact the ACF Mirror Coordinator.

Qualifying for ACF Nationals

ACF Regionals serves as a qualifying tournament for ACF Nationals. ACF’s procedures for determining which teams have qualified for ACF Nationals are available here. As with any ACF tournament, failing to play off or award any applicable Undergraduate and Division II titles at Regionals will incur a penalty (see Penalties). In the event that a host’s failure to play off or award Undergraduate and Division II titles precludes awarding Nationals bids normally, ACF will handle bids on a case-by-case basis.
