The President of the Malta FA, Bjorn Vassallo, met with FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, in the French capital, Paris on Monday. The meeting, which was scheduled in the last few days, served for president Vassallo to explain about the progress of Maltese football at present, where he spoke about the projects that the MFA is currently working on including the renovation of the sports facilities and the building of the National Football Center in Ta’ Qali. For his part, president Infantino spoke about the FIFA Forward 3.0 development program which has reached its third edition and which will cover the cycle from 2023 to 2026.
Through this program, the MFA invests directly in technical projects, in the domestic competitions of both clubs and member associations and in sports infrastructure. During the meeting there was also a discussion about the new mandate of President Infantino who is expected to be re-elected on March 16, for another four years in office and about the importance of FIFA continuing to work in an active way on the inherent dignity and equal rights in football activities, so that football is increasingly accessible and open to all. Infantino wished the MFA President continued success for Maltese football and pledged his ongoing support.
