Two associations catering for Beach Soccer and Futsal respectively were accepted by the Executive Committee of the Malta Football Association as provisional members. This was announced during a meeting of the Council which was held on Wednesday.
After applying to join the MFA as member associations, the Malta Beach Soccer Association and the newly set-up Futsal Malta Association will be admitted as member associations in July/August, pending approval by the MFA’s Annual General Meeting.
In the mean time, they were granted the right for an observer in the Council.
The Malta Beach Soccer Association, which was formally set up earlier this year, organises the Malta Beach Soccer Championship in summer.
On the other hand, the Malta Football Association hopes the Futsal Malta Association will take over the organisation of the Futsal League in a year’s time.
The president of Futsal Malta Association is Donald Spiteri while the secretary is Alex Falzon.
