Two fund-raising activities for the Community Chest Fund during the festive season in which the MFA also collaborates with other entities are ‘Gowl għall-Istrina’ and the football tournament traditionally organised by the Għaqda Ġurnalisti Sport.


 

 
 
 
 
The association was fully involved in ‘Gowl għall-Istrina’ held on the initiative of two TV stations football programmes, ‘Replay’ on Net TV and ‘L-Argument’ on One TV. The MFA made its venue at the Centenary Stadium available on Boxing Day in the afternoon. Numerous players from the Premier to the Third Division Leagues, including a selection of foreign players engaged with local clubs, added to the attraction of the event which was held in a festive atmosphere. Guest of honour was President Dr. George Abela, former president of the MFA under whose auspices money is collected for the Community Chest Fund. The sum raised was a handsome figure of €8000.
 
Another activity held for the same cause and in which the association was also involved was the annual football tournament. This was organised earlier on the same day at the same venue. Four teams took part in this tournament, a selection from the MFA staff and other teams representing the Malta Football Coaches Association (MFCA), the Malta Football Referees Association (MFRA) and the Għaqda Ġurnalisti Sports (GħĠS).
 
The coaches’ team won the tournament with maximum points from the three matches played, with the other three teams sharing second place with a win for each side. However, more important was that €1415 were collected for charity.
 
In this way the Malta Football Association showed its solidarity with the rest of the Maltese community in doing its part when helping to raise funds for a worthy cause.
