Both the Orlando Aces and the South Beach Palms made it to the Semi Final match in the As 1 Tournament in December 2020.

The Aces lost on the final race to the eventual Champion, the Fort Lauderdale Lions. The Palms also lost on the final race to the runner up, to the Gainesville Wild. Both matches were extremely close.

The Orlando Aces are built around head coach and star player Taylar Stallings as arguably the top strength specialist in the League.

The Palms also feature a star player and head coach in Bryleigh Hansen who was voted the 2019 utility player of the year.

Both teams had the majority of their team re-signing from 2020 so will be leveraging established team chemistry coming into this match.
