The Malta Premier League (MPL) has been formally accepted as member of European Leagues (EL), the organization which brings together professional football leagues in Europe.
The decision was taken during the EL General Assembly in Oporto.
European Leagues is already providing MPL, as one of its Development Members, with advice and best practices on the establishment of a new Premier League in Malta.
MPL Chairman Joseph Muscat said that following the clubs’ unanimous endorsement of its Statute and Work Programme, this was another crucial step forward.
“Our membership of European Leagues in such a short period of time will help in setting up the new league and in our discussions with MFA. EL agreed to give us access to their know how so that the new Premier League will be competitive and an attractive experience for fans, said Dr Muscat.
Together with MFA, the Malta Premier League will soon organize a consultation conference for stakeholders with a view of discussing choices that need to be made.
