A week today, 12th February, Top UKMA officials will meet with Rob Flello, the MP for Stoke-on-Trent South to discuss our plans for the future.
A UKMA spokesman said they were delighted to confirm the meeting and added: “Mr Flello has been extremely supportive of the UKMA and our aims for small-sided football. We are delighted to be able to meet with him and talk him through everything we do.”
Amongst the topics that are set to be discussed are the UK 6 a side Championships – which takes place again in June and last year saw over 300 teams take part in the competition – our network of affiliated leagues up and down the UK, and our plans for the National Teams of England, Scotland and Wales.
We will be showing Mr Flello a community league in Stoke on Trent which is organised by one of our affiliates, Football Evolution and we thank them very much for their help in organising the visit.
There will be a full report on the meeting next week.
