National 5-a-side Football Tournament

Every year NABGC runs a National 5-a-side Football Tournament.


This is the culmination of a national tournament that has involved around 2,000 young people from youth clubs and projects across the UK.


Local county organisations have organised their 5-a-side tournaments and winners have progressed to the national final.


In 2018 the final was held at the SportsDome, Trafford Park in Greater Manchester, where around 400 young people gathered to compete to become NABGC National Champions.


The aim of the event Is not just to decide a winner, but to be a festival of Football, where people are encouraged to try their hardest and do their best. But, above all, we want to encourage players to enjoy Football and compete in a safe and friendly environment where they can also meet and have fun with other young people from all over the UK.



National Youth Work Charity – 100,000 young people, 8,000 volunteers, 1,000 youth clubs in the most deprived communities.
