The Malta Football Association through its Grassroots Department within the Technical Centre in collaboration with the Sport Promotion Unit (SPU) within SportMalta and the Directorate for Quality and Standards in Education (DQSE) are reviving the once popular Schools' Football Tournament.
This 11-a side event, held for Form 3s and Form 4s kicked off this week with the following participation; Gozo Boys' Secondary (Gozo College), St. Venera Boys' Secondary (St. Theresa College), Pembroke & Sliema Boys' Secondary Schools (St. Claire College), St. Benedict Boys' Secondary (St. Benedict College), Hamrun Boys' Secondary (San Gorg Preca College), Hamrun Boys' Secondary (St. Thomas More College), Verdala Boys' Secondary (St. Margaret College) and the National Sport School.
State schools are competing in two groups on Monday 9th & Tuesday 10th November with the top two schools in the groups qualifying for the semi-finals on Friday.
The top two state schools' teams will then be joined by the top two teams from the non-state schools in the Finals on the 9th of May 2016.
The tournament is being held at premises provided by Mellieha SC, Sliema Wanderers FC and Mosta FC seeing over 300 boys aged 13 to 15.
The MFA Technical Centre is pleased to yet again collaborate with the SPU and DQSE in organising a wonderful experience to the children and introducing competitive football in schools.
MFA referees were also engaged in supervising the games and imbue in the youngsters a sense of competition and fair play.
The MFA would again like to express its satisfaction and thank all sponsors of the MFA School Activities for their material assistance, which also help to make this new tournament a success.
