The MMKSFL proudly became an FA Charter Standard League in 2020, offering everybody a high-quality, safe and enjoyable grassroots experience that is nationally recognised.

What is a Charter Standard League? 

The Charter Standard League Programme assesses the league on its ability to provide a high quality, safe and enjoyable football experience against a standard set of criteria. It will also encourage your league to continuously develop, through on-going support from the County FA and the review and update of a league development plan, as part of an annual health check.
