Mellieha Sports Club 75th Anniversary – 75 years of history

Mellieha Sports club was setup with the aim to promote sports and music to the residents of Mellieha.  In the 1950’s it was decided to focus solely on promoting and fostering development on sports in the village and surroundings.  Currently the main sports played are Football, Baseball and Netball. 

During time the club did major changes with artificial turf installed on the pitch along with a fully-fledged LED lighting system.  To add to this the premises were originally situated in Triq il-Parrocca and eventually moved to Triq Edward Camilleri side by side with the ground.

Another important factor in this organisation are the people.  Being a total voluntary organisation, managed by a committee, our club has seen more than 100 people being involved.  One can note that commitment in the club is very active and one has to mention the current President, Alfred Vella Borg, that has been involved for over 60 years whilst the Honorary late Edward Camilleri has been President for 30 years.  There are other members that have served the club for over 30 years, and some of them are still members of the current committee.

As part of the 75th Anniversary activities, the club organised an Exhibition of its history including various events.  The activities will close off with an event to be held on Saturday 17th of September 2022 to commemorate the 75th Anniversary and  opening of the new premises with the participation of MFA Officials and all voluntary organisations and band clubs of Mellieha. 

There will be the unveiling of a monument to commemorate this event.
