The UKMA provides our referees with the opportunity to be selected to officiate in UK and international competition. All referees to be considered for this opportunity must have the A-License as specified below. To officiate in a small-sided football competition, a B or C License is usually sufficient for most affiliated league competitions and games.

Referees are encouraged to join us on a UKMA referees training course, where they will be able to gain one of the following qualifications which will enable them to referee in small-sided football matches at regional, national and international level. Further details on future referee training courses will be made available here in due course, and all registered referees will be contacted in regards to any future training course upon their registration.
