Thanks to the initiative of Mr. Sharlon Pace President of Gzira United F.C., the twinning agreement with Athleta Basketball Club will continue for a second consecutive season and the club will play once more under the title of GZIRA ATHLETA.    With this sound backing, the basketball club strengthened its playing staff for season 2016/2017 with the acquisition of Malta International Peter Schultz, the seasoned 3-pointer David Camilleri, both ex Virtus Starlites and the Maltese Australian Chris Meier, who was convinced to return to Malta to play in the local league. At the moment the club has short-listed a number of foreign players for one of them to join the team next month. It is hoped that with these additions the team will go better than last season when the club won the Knock-Out competition and now challenge for all major honours.

The club is very appreciative for the support of its sponsors without whom the club would not have become the most titled male senior squad in Malta. These include the directors Marvin and Noel Sammut of AtoZ Electronics our main sponsor for the last ten years, RSM, Charles Grech Ltd and Reflex Gym.
