Malta FA Executive Board confirms Ethics Committee recommendation regarding Joseph Portelli

The Malta FA Executive Board met on Tuesday to discuss the request by Ħamrun Spartans FC to register Mr Joseph Portelli as a professional player following his resignation from the post of club president.

The recommendation of the Ethics and Compliance Committee not to accept the registration was confirmed by the Executive Board, which is ultimately the competent body to decide on such matters on the basis of the Association’s Reputational Risk Management Policy.

The decision is subject to appeal.
