Masters Football in Malta has announced that the number of participating teams is increasing as it is becoming more popular .

This year the association will  be celebrating its fifth year of its existence and the hard working committee is determined to continue moving forward. This is what Mario Meli, the president of the association stated whilst welcoming the journalists and the gathering of delegates and enthusiasts present during the launch and presentation of sponsorship for the coming season.

He also mentioned the changes being put forward for the coming season, that include two divisions – Premier and Division One – with promotion and relegation.

Meli thanked the sponsors for these competitions, MAPFE MSV Life Masters Premier League and Farsons sponsoring the CISK Division One Masters League. He also thanked the other sponsors for the other smaller competitions during the season, that is, Tools Planet Pre Season Tournament, Zmerc Christmas Tournament, Kia Super Cup and L’AromaKnock Out.

Michael Galea, Chief Officer Business Development at MAPFRE MSV Life,  said that they were delighted to sponsor Masters Football for the 5th  consecutive year.  He said that the company is committed to help the Maltese communities.  And sport is one of the key areas that gives its support.

He congratulated the committee of Masters Football,  for its efforts to increase the number of teams, now reaching a record 13. He also announced that they will be sponsoring a Player of the Month trophy which will continue to make the league more attractive and be an added motivation for the players.

Jean Pierre Mifsud, the secretary of the association, gave details about the competitions being organised and the commitment of the representative  teams  with a game every month until the end of this year.

The teams will continue to be coached by Charles Agius who was confirmed for another two years. The captain of the team that won the tournament very recently in Brussels, Brian Said, was present and invited more  players to join clubs within the association which is giving them the opportunity to continue to play competitive football after they retire from the MFA.

Brian Said was voted the best player of the tournament in Brussels.

At the end Meli was presented with the sponsorship cheque by Michael Galea of MAPRE MSV Life.
