Ontario Soccer has recently placed Futsal development in its 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, and as an integral component of the Long Term Officials Development (LTOD) program.
As a result, standards and requirements have been established for Futsal Match Officials with regards to Registration, Grading, Fitness, and Assigning.
Following these standards, all registered Futsal Match Officials are prohibited from officiating in unsanctioned Futsal leagues. In turn, all Futsal leagues must be sanctioned by Ontario Soccer in order to obtain the services of registered Futsal Match Officials.
Secondly, registered Ontario Soccer Futsal Leagues and District Referee Coordinators will be provided with a complete list of Registered Futsal Match Officials by November 15, 2019.
Only registered Futsal Match Officials may be assigned to sanctioned Futsal competition.
