The Malta Football Association launched a new website and an official Facebook page during a press conference which was held at the Centenary Hall, Ta’ Qali on Monday.
For quite some time, it has been felt that although the association’s official website mfa.com.mt did offer potential, there was ample space for improvement and therefore the necessity to upgrade.
The objective was to raise the website to a level which is more in line with today’s needs, and to include features which are more appealing to today’s visitor and that will open new openings to the MFA to engage with football fans and followers, as well as making it possible for the association to create opportunities for new revenue streams.
The MFA has various roles to play and is involved in the organisation of a range of activities and it is therefore very important for its electronic portal to cater for these activities.
The website, developed by Untangled Media, now includes more information than before, modules for the various leagues, competitions and national teams and a Fanzone dedicated to the national team.
The website will also offer an online store in the near future.
Meanwhile, in parallel with the website the MFA has opened up its official Facebook Page “Malta Football Association – 1900”
As stated in the Page welcome message by MFA President, Norman Darmanin Demajo, “Communication and dialogue are an important cornerstone in our Association’s relationship with our football loving public.”
The idea behind the page is to keep fans updated and for all football lovers to freely pass comments, opinions and suggestions on how to improve the local game.
MFA Chief Executive Bjorn Vassallo, Head of Marketing Norman Saliba together with Robert Grech and Wesley Ellul from Untangled Media addressed the press conference.
