The United Kingdom Mini Football Association is the very first national governing body in the entire UK that was created solely for small sided football. There are affiliates leagues across the country, and for members there is a massive amount of structured support and guidance.
The UK Mini Football Association owns and runs the UK National six-aside championships. This is a huge event in mini football and with scouts present at all matches, it is easy to see why so many teams and players are keen to be a part of this essential small football tournament.
There are main aims that the UK Mini Football Association is keen to strive towards. These include perhaps the most important which is promoting small-sided football and educating players, coaches and referees in the nuances and skills required to play this exciting game.
There is also much support for disabled players within the UK Mini Football Association, and charities benefit greatly from the funds that are raised regularly.
As well as this, it is important that small-sided football is promoted as a healthy activity and something that everyone can get involved in at any level. Within six-aside football there is the chance to be included in many different social situations, to learn more skills, to have sport integrated into everyday life and to be educated in how coaching, training and playing works.
