Castle Africa 5s is the continental leg of the Trophy 5-A-Side developmental football tournament, the continent’s biggest amateur 5-A-Side football competition involving grassroot teams from several African countries in which ABInBev operates. Last year, the Nigerian Trophy Five-A-Side team won the Castle Africa 5s competition, hence the decision to launch this year's tournament in Nigeria.
