Saturday 18th May, 2019 was a special day for participants of the Malta Football Association's inclusion projects, namely ‘All In – All for Football’, which are co-funded by UEFA and the European Union, as well as other initiatives under the Association’s Football For Life programme.
 


Students from the Guardian Angel and Helen Keller Education Resource Centres together with children from the Ħal-Far Open Centre who attend the San Ġwann FC Youth Nursery, were invited to a matchday experience prior and during the FA Trophy final between Balzan and Valletta at the National Stadium.

 

The young guests, all wearing Football For Life t-shirts, were able to follow all the pre-match activities on the pitch and joined the players for the line-up prior to kick-off.

 

Players from Team MT, the selection representing members of the local entertainment and media industry, assisted the player escorts, making this an unforgettable experience for them.

 

In the week leading up to the FA Trophy final, won by Balzan on penalties, players from both teams also visited two schools: St Theresa College Middle School in Birkirkara and the St Ignatius College Ħandaq Middle School.

 

Students met and played with the players and were also given tickets for the FA Trophy final.

 

The events were co-ordinated by Peter Busuttil from the Malta FA’s Football Social Responsibility Department.
