MEET OUR CLUB ASSOCIATES

Albany Creek Excelsior Football Club (ACE) is a founding member of MBU F.C. and a Primary Financial Associate.  ACE Football Club funded the establishment of MBU F.C. and collaborated in the setup phase making players, coaches and facilities available as necessary.

ACE is a not for profit football club established in 1963 with fantastic facilities at Brendale and Albany Creek. Over the past 5 years, the club's effort in player development have been awarded when ACE was granted one of only six licenses in Brisbane into the Junior Premier League which was established by Football Queensland and Football Brisbane to replace the State Development program.  ACE successfully won selection out of 28 clubs based on the club ability to meet and exceed the criterion set by FB and FQ for selection. The club's development program has produced results with ACE providing a large number of juniors into the JPL program from 2010 to 2012 albeit continuing their development and by 2012 had achieved promotion into the Brisbane Premier League (BJL) in three junior age groups. 

 

Within Senior Football, ACE was promoted from Premier Division 2 to Division 1 in 2011, winning the Championship that same year, the Club Division 2 Champions Trophy, the Reserve Grade Premiership and Championship. In 2012, the club won the Premier Division 1 Premiership and would have been promoted into the Premier League. In response to Football Brisbane announcing the restructure of the Brisbane Premier League and requesting clubs to submit an application for participation, ACE submitted an application and was amongst almost 30 applicants for 12 spots. Application into the Premier League for 2013 was based on a strict criterion underpinned by junior development, financial management, facilities and operational management.  The professionalism of the club was once again acknowledged in the clubs selection as part of the first 12 teams announced by FB.

 

In 2013, from the players selected into the MBU F.C. junior teams,  Under 18 and Under 20, ACE players represented between 50% and 80% of every team which is a recognition of their effective player development program.
