UEFA announced that Birkirkara FC will be hosting one of the UEFA Women’s Champions League Qualifying Round mini tournaments in August.   This was revealed during a press conference in which Birkirkara’s President Mr. Joe Zammit addressed to those present that this news was confirmed from UEFA themselves and that 3 other women teams will be on our island.  This is a good promotion for women’s football in Malta.


 

 

 

During the same press conference Minister for Finance, The Economy and Investment Tonio Fenech announced that the government will be supporting this event with a grant through the National Lotteries Good Causes Fund.   Hon Minister Tonio Fenech added that The Good Causes funds gave its commitment for this tournament because they believe that it’s a good cause, as women’s football is difficult to get help from sponsors.   This activity can be a good opportunity to attract tourists on our island and of course to invite more girls to interest themselves in this game. 

 

The entrance fee will be free so that more people are encouraged to support Birkirkara and above all this, WOMEN’S FOOTBALL IN MALTA!!

 

The draws for the qualifying round will be held on 27th June.
