The agreement was signed by Igino Xuereb, Chief Officer Operations at Bank of Valletta and Stephen Muscat, Financial Controller of the Malta Basketball Association in the presence of Frank Camilleri, Secretary General of the MBA during a press conference held at Bank of Valletta’s Head Office in Santa Venera.

“Most of the younger generation of basketball players today have benefitted from the training received in the BOV Basketball Mini Basket Academy and we are confident that we will achieve further successes in the international scene as the ones currently enjoyed by the Female National Team” said Stephen Muscat. “Our long standing relationship with Bank of Valletta has enabled us to plan in the long term for the success of the sport on our islands”.

    I would like to know what the clubs in Malta have benefit from such a sponsorship? While in football, clubs get cash bonus in lieu of placing, in Basketball such sponsorship are at the mercy of the President Council.
