The Niagara Falls Soccer Club Executive Board and A.C. Douglas Tournament and Festival Committee are proud to announce the 61st Anniversary of our A.C. Douglas Tournament and Festival.

We look forward to playing host to over 200 teams here in Niagara once again.

REGISTRATION COMING SOON!

Stay safe and see you all August 12th & 13th, 2023

The A.C Douglas and Mr. A.C. Douglas!


Mr. A.C. Douglas at A.C. Douglas Park in Fort Erie

The A.C Douglas Tournament and Festival is entering its 61st year, and, is to date, the longest run tournament in Ontario!  It is one of the most favourably attended, not only for its beautiful fields and great competition but also has been paired up for a quick summer family getaway to visit the magnificent Niagara Falls!  

A.C. Douglas was an esteemed member of the Niagara Falls Soccer Club, a Diplomat, an Agriculturist, a Developer, a beloved Family man and especially a Soccer enthusiast!  Mr Douglas originally started this Tournament to promote the tourism industry and also to bring some great soccer competition into our wonderful City along with another one of our proud NFSC members, Mr Dan O'Connor.  The tournament that started out with only 4 teams in 1962 has now grown to host over 200!

The A.C. Douglas Tournament and Festival Committee strives to continue to put on a great competitive weekend year after year, offering teams from around Ontario the opportunity to play teams they don't normally play.

NFSC would like to invite your team to participate in this year's A.C. Douglas Tournament and Festival!


Another Great AC Douglas Tournament and Festival!!

A BIG THANK YOU!

goes out to everyone who participated, volunteered, and those who were behind the scenes for our 60th anniversary!! 

Even coming out of COVID we still hosted 174 teams!

We hope everyone had a great time and we hope you all come back to challenge for the Championship title for AC Douglas for 2023
