Swieqi United promoted to Second Division

Back in 2009, two University students remarked that Swieqi did not have a football club that represented the locality. After a couple of meetings, Swieqi United F.C (SUFC) was born on April 14th 2009 and a quick application was made to the Malta Football Association (MFA) in order to have the club accredited with the association. A careful and calculated search for commitee members and players followed which eventually led to the club ending 8th of ten teams in its maiden season.

Fast forward five years, and in 2014 the club finds itself flying high! Swieqi FC Seniors Team managed to obtain a first ever historic promotion to the MFA Second Division. The Futsal Team, which was established in 2012, is battling against some of Malta’s elite futsal teams in the Maltese Futsal Premier League. Season 2013-2014 was also the maiden season for the SUFC U19s who managed to obtain some incredible results and ended the season in fourth place, few points shy of promotion. SUFC also launched its Youth Academy and will be competing in the U17 league next season. Last but not least, in collaboration with the MFA, SUFC has opened its own 7-a side pitch in Pembroke.
