VisitMalta offers a €10,000 incentive for each stage that a Maltese football team advances in European competitions

In recent years, VisitMalta has supported local football teams participating in official UEFA competitions with a financial incentive of €10,000.

Once again this year, the incentive will increase as each individual team has the potential to benefit from an additional €10,000 for every stage they progress in their respective competition.

The local teams set to benefit from this incentive include Ħamrun Spartans Football Club in the UEFA Champions League, Floriana Football Club, Sliema Wanderers Football Club and Marsaxlokk Football Club in the UEFA Europa Conference League, Birkirkara Football Club’s women’s team in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Luxol St Andrews in the UEFA Futsal Champions League and Valletta Football Club in the UEFA Youth League.

The mentioned teams will feature the VisitMalta brand on their kits during UEFA competitions.

Details were announced in a press conference by the Minister for Tourism and Public Cleanliness, Clayton Bartolo, in the presence of the CEO of the Malta Tourism Authority, Carlo Micallef, and officials from the respective clubs.

Minister Clayton Bartolo noted that the increased incentive for local teams competing in UEFA tournaments is a clear demonstration that, as a country, there is nothing stopping us from achieving more successes in the sports world. “Our small geographic size should never be a barrier to Maltese sports aspirations. On the contrary, we should be more proactive in encouraging more sports ventures to go beyond our shores to promote our country and, above all, achieve the desired success,” remarked Minister Clayton Bartolo.
