This website went online in August 1996, just a few months after the internet was introduced in Malta. Originally it was just a section inside an unofficial Rabat Ajax website.
The off-spring of the Rabat Ajax site soon developed to become the Maltese Soccer Web Site which is still the only site that provides a comprehensive guide to football in Malta and Gozo. The coverage provided ranges from the MFA Premier to the Third Division League, all the other competitions organised by the MFA, the Youth FA and the Gozo Football Association.
On its fifth birthday in August 2001, the Maltese Soccer Web Site became maltafootball.com. The site celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2016.
