8th UEFA Regions' Cup - Intermediate Round
Oct 13, 2012
Posted in:

The group matches involving the team from Malta, which will be represented by a Gozitan selection in the eighth edition of the UEFA Regions Cup, are being played in Gozo. The teams involved are Gozo, Rinuzi/Strong (Latvia), FC Olimp Moscow (Russia) and ARF Ialoveni (Moldova).


 

 

 

The idea of a pan-European amateur football tournament was first suggested by UEFA 47 years ago, exactly in 1965. However, it was only after the turn of the millennium that technical problems as to what constitutes an amateur player were resolved and proper criteria were laid down.

 

Eventually the competition as we know it nowadays got underway and it is now in its eighth edition. It is contested primarily on a regional rather than a national basis, with teams representing Malta being regarded as eligible.
