All clubs within the Malta Football Association will be represented in the Council and all clubs will be entitled for two votes in the Annual General Meeting after amendments to the Statute of the Malta Football Association were unanimously approved during an Extraordinary General Meeting which was held on Wednesday.
So far the ten Council members and the ten delegates from each of the Premier League and First Division clubs plus ten Council members and ten of the twelve delegates of Second Division clubs and ten Council members and ten of the twenty-one delegates of Third Division clubs were eligible to vote. This meant that during the Annual General Meeting, Premier League and First Division clubs had two votes each while Second and Third Division clubs had either one or two votes or even none.
Following the approval of these amendments, all clubs will have two votes as from next month’s Annual General Meeting which will be held on Saturday July 23rd.
As regards the composition of the Council, all member clubs will now be represented. So far, the Council had one representative of each Premier League and First Division clubs plus ten representatives of Second Division clubs and ten ten representatives of Third Division clubs.
The Council will therefore be made up of the President and the other Officers of the Association, one representative of each Member Club, two representatives each of the Gozo Football Association, Inter Amateur Soccer Competition, Malta Amateur Football Association, Industries Soccer Association, Employees Sports Association, District Football Association, The Youth Football Association, Football Coaches Association and Football Referees Association and one representative of the Hotels and Restaurants Sports Association.
