The EUPA has asked the Malta FA to share its good practices during a press conference to launch more Erasmus+ opportunities in the field of sport.  The Malta FA has been involved in a number of EU Funded projects in the last few years, amongst them 7 projects in the last two years alone. 

The projects, headed by the Malta FA's FSR Department include awareness campaigns on match fixing, domestic violence, youth rehabilitation, parent education, coaching skills for vulnerable children, gender equality and other social inclusion projects. 

The event was held to launch three Erasmus+ schemes that will give opportunities to sport organisations, coaches, club staff and volunteers to join their European counterparts in projects abroad. 30 coaches can better their skills on foreign land during 2023.   it is estimated that €135,000 will be utilised to send 150 coaches on this initiative until the end of 2027.   Another scheme will give the opportunity to sporting organisations in Malta and Gozo to strengthen their structures, competencies and operations by joining in projects by their European partners.  Sportsmen and women between the ages of 13 and 30 are also being given the opportunity to take part in youth exchanges.
