‘Despite what the world is going through, the Malta FA is still investing in capital projects to ameliorate its sport facilities’, said Malta FA President Bjorn Vassallo during a press conference held today by MFA Sport Plus ahead of the Tipsport Malta Cup 2022.

Vassallo reiterated that better facilities in a country like Malta which is strategically located and enjoys excellent weather will attract more foreign teams who choose our country for their training camps.  He explained that the aim is to have the best facilities in the South European region.  He said that Sport Tourism is a niche which the Malta FA, through MFA Sports Plus, has explored in the recent years and is working around the clock to see it grow.  Fund generated by Sports Tourism will furthermore be reinjected in enhancing facilities, with the next large-scale project which the Malta FA has embarked on is construction of a new National Football Centre.

The fourth edition of the Tipsport Malta Cup international football tournament will take place from 16 to 25 of January, 2022 at the National Stadium. The participating four teams are namely Czech Premier League side SK Sigma Olomouc, Slovakia’s FC Spartak Trnava, Austria’s WSG Tirol Wattens, winners of the 2021 Tipsport Malta Cup, and Danish AAB Aalborg FC.  The Tipsport Malta Cup is being organised by MFA Sports Plus and backed up by Visitmalta.com.
