The Malta FA has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with its Spanish counterpart, the Real Federacion Espanola de Futbol (RFEF), that enables both parties to share their experiences in different fields and in so doing strengthen the good relations that already exist between the 2 federations.
The Royal Spanish Football Federation and the Malta FA, represented by their respective Presidents and General Secretaries, signed this MoU on Saturday in Frankfurt, prior to the draw for the qualifying phase for the 2024 European Championship.
President Bjorn Vassallo described this agreement as a show of trust in the work being done by the Malta FA.
“Our steps forward and the way we work is being noted by others, including much bigger federations like Spain, who have a lot to offer us and from whom we can benefit. From our side we will still contribute by always being open to share our experience as a proactive player in European football.”
Luis Rubiales, president of the RFEF, has promised to work side by side with Malta FA President Bjorn Vassallo, to intensify the ties between both associations and help in every way possible for the proper development of Maltese football. With this agreement, a mutual benefit will be sought for the two federations through the sharing of good practices in different areas.
The scope of the agreement includes opportunities in the fields of coach education, seminars and conferences, and exchanges in the refereeing sector. The agreement covers also the development of women’s football, sport sciences, medical services and other areas such as legal, marketing and communication.
In essence, a very complete agreement that is the culmination of months of work by both federations.
