The tournament should serve as a preparation for the national team ahead of the UEFA Futsal EURO Preliminary Round mini-tournament which will be played between the 13th and 18th January where Malta will be facing Latvia, England and Andorra.

A sizeable crowd is expected at the Corradino Pavillion to give Malta the much-needed support which will eventually give a psychological boost for the local players.
