Malta Women’s National Team start EURO 2025 Qualifiers against Northern Ireland 

The Malta Women’s National Team will hit the ground running with its first match in the Women EURO 2025 Qualifiers as we face Northern Ireland on away territories.

The game scheduled for the 5th of April, will be Malta’s maiden game in League B Group 3, following promotion achieved last December during the Nations League Qualifiers where
Malta managed to win the group after a fascinating run of results seeing them winning five matches, held only once, and never beaten.

The draw which took place earlier this week in Nyon, pitted Malta in the same group with Portugal, Northern Ireland, and Bosnia Herzegovina.

The Malta Women’s Team under the guidance of Head Coach Manuela Tesse will be vying to hit higher standards, fully aware of a much tougher challenge lying ahead, with all three teams in the group enjoying a better ranking than Malta.

The first home match for Malta in this competition is set for the 9th of April against Portugal who are currently ranked 21st in the FIFA ranking and are the favorites to finish top in the group.

The next window in this competition is scheduled to start at the end of May with Malta scheduled to face Bosnia Herzegovina both home and away.

Final commitments on home territories see Malta rub shoulders with Northern Ireland on the 12th of June, and an away fixture against Portugal to put curtains down on this cycle on June 16th.

This European qualifier will apply the same promotion and relegation mechanism as operated in the recent Nations League Qualifiers, whereby the winners of the groups in League B will attain automatic promotion to League A, and with all fourth-placed teams as well as the lowest-ranked third-placed teams being relegated to League C.

The third-placed teams in League A will face League B runners-up, with the winners playing in League A and the defeated teams in League B.

The three best-ranked third-placed teams in League B face the three best-ranked League C runners-up, with the winners playing in League B and the defeated sides in League C.
