UKMA Backs “No” Campaign In Scotland Referendum

Wednesday September 3, 2014 at 2:17pm

With Scotland set to go to the polls in two weeks’ time to make a decision which will affect the whole of the union, the governing body which runs the Scotland National 6 a side football team has come out to publically back the Better Together campaign.

The United Kingdom Minifootball Association, which sends the Scotland team to national and international competitions around the globe, explained that they were pushing for the union to be maintained.

Spokesman Alex Young said: “The name perhaps gives a clue, but we at the United Kingdom Minifootball Association will be hoping for a no vote on September 18th.”

Mr Young admitted that if the result went in favour of the independence lobby the future of the Scotland 6 a side team would be unclear: “At this stage whilst we would hope that Scotland team is unaffected, it is not something that we can guarantee,” he warned.

“The Scotland team are vital to us and for that reason we hope that they, along with England and Scotland, are all travelling under the UKMA banner to the next European Championships.”

Their most recent appearance in competitive fixtures saw them take on England and Wales in the special Home Nations competition at the UK 6 a side Championships (pictured), where they shared a goalless draw with England and beat Wales 3-0.
