Be a Futsal Referee!

The Association is always seeking hardworking, passionate referees to become futsal referees. Only USSF/FIFA certified officials may referee games in Massachusetts.

Why become a futsal referee? The fast pace of a futsal match forces referees to be fit, focused and make decisions quickly. It is excellent for referee development. Beyond that, it is fun to officiate and the MFA provides regular opportunities for evaluation. We welcome you to join the futsal referee family!

Over the past six years, 13 futsal referees have been selected to officiate at the US Soccer national futsal championships.
