Six members have been elected to the Executive Board of the Malta Football Association for season 2022-23 during the General Assembly which was held on Friday. The new officials have been nominated to serve on the Association’s top executive body by their respective grouping.
Michael Valenzia will fill the seat relinquished by Dione Borg in representation of Premier League clubs while Joseph Gauci, Dr Peter Fenech and Matthew Naudi succeed Godfrey Borg, Joe Sammut and Stefan Vella as the three representatives of the Challenge League.
Godfrey Borg will keep his seat on the Executive Board, however, as he has been nominated to represent the National Amateur League, taking over from Dr Cory Greenland. Pio Vassallo is filling the seat previously held by Mark Borg as the representative of Futsal and Beach Soccer while Simon Spiteri replaces Kenneth Costantino as representative for Women’s Football.
Introduced last year as part of the Malta FA statute reform, the Executive Board has replaced the Bureau, the Council and the Executive Committee. It comprises representatives from all the categories of the Maltese football ecosystem, namely the three main league divisions, the Gozo FA, Youth FA, Malta Football Coaches Association, Malta Football Players Association, women’s football, futsal and beach soccer and member associations representing recreational football.
President Bjorn Vassallo and Vice-Presidents Ludovico Micallef, Adrian Casha and Matthew Paris represent the Malta FA on the Executive Board along with non-voting members Dr Angelo Chetcuti (General Secretary) and Ivan Mizzi (Treasurer).
The other ordinary members of the Executive Board for the term 2021-2023 are Jesmond Abela, David Abdilla, Lawrence Aquilina, Dr Samuel Azzopardi, Patrick Cutajar, Robert Camilleri, Victor Cassar, Carlo Mamo, Robert Micallef, Chris Grech, Stephanie Rocco, Claudio Martinelli and Francis Muscat.
