A Fact

The Malta Football Association (MFA) is the governing body of football in Malta.
It organises the Maltese Football League and several other competitions, including the knockout competition for the top teams, called the FA Trophy. The Malta national football team as well as several other representative teams in the younger categories compete regularly in international competitions organised by UEFA and FIFA. These include the European Championships and the World Cup.
Malta also takes part in women's international competitions and those of Futsal.
The MFA manages the National stadium and the Centenary Stadium. This complex based in Ta` Qali includes training grounds, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and physiotherapy and medical clinics. The complex is also used by foreign clubs during the winter months, due to the mild temperatures of the Maltese Islands.
The association is one of the oldest, being founded in 1900 with the first national league being organised in season 1909-1910. There are several important landmarks in the history of Maltese football, especially since Malta played its first official international friendly match against Austria in February 1957. The result was a narrow 3-2 defeat for Malta.
It took until 1959 for the MFA to join FIFA, also joining UEFA the year after in 1960. From then onwards, Malta become an ever-present in international competitions at national teams as well as at club levels.
The MFA is structured by having 53 member clubs, as well as 10 member associations. The clubs compete in four divisions; the premier, first, second and third. The member associations are specialised football associations who organise competitions for clubs affiliated to them.
