The 2015 ACF Nationals was held between April 18 and 19 at Michigan. It was edited by Ryan Westbrook, Ike Jose, Billy Busse, and Rob Carson.

Penn defeated Chicago in a one-game final.

Penn's victory was the long-awaited first national title for Eric Mukherjee, who had participated in his first national finals match seven years prior at 2008 ACF Nationals and played at a consistently high level in the interim.

This was also the first year in which ACF used the A-value to invite qualified teams to compete based on their performance at ACF Regionals, rather than maintaining unrestricted registration for any collegiate team as in years past.
