Developing Facilities

In most cases, pre-existing facilities can be modified to incorporate recreational small-sided football games and leagues.

As such, all sports facilities that possess either a sports hall or an astroturf may be eligible for facility accreditation by the UKMA.

The UKMA does though encourage facilities to improve their grounds for the playing of small-sided football and sport in general by making their facilities more accessible and amenable to the general public. This can include the improvement of pitch surface, the expansion of pre-existing grounds and indoor pitch upgrades and modifications. We also encourage the development of new modern facilities for small-sided football and sport in general.

UKMA accredited facilities will be able to apply for any future funding that we may receive for the improvement of their facilities for the playing of small-sided football. Further information on funding can be found here.
