Ranked third in the Fistf World standings, the Bormla Subbuteo Club advanced to the final of the Fistf Major in Ilioupoli, Athens, Greece. The final match ended with a 1-1 draw, but Bormla lost due to a goal difference disadvantage. This marked Bormla’s first appearance in a Major final and their 12th international podium finish, solidifying their status as a top-three global club force.

To reach the final, Bormla dominated Group 1 with three wins out of three matches: a 4-0 victory against Glyfada Greece, another 4-0 win over Subbuteurs B Greece, and a 3-1 triumph against Olympia Greece. These victories allowed them to advance directly to the quarter-finals, where they defeated Atlas of Greece 2-0.

In the semi-finals, Bormla faced the Bologna Tigers and initially trailed 0-4. However, a dramatic turnaround in the second quarter saw them equalise, ultimately winning on goal advantage. The crowd applauded the Bormla team for their resilience and determination. The team comprised Captain Charles Aquilina, Jason Pisani, Bessim Golger, John Zammit, and Josef Camilleri.

On Saturday, in the individual competition, Belgian Bessim Golger advanced to the final in the open category, showcasing an impressive performance throughout the tournament. Additionally, Jason Pisani made it to the semi-finals in the veteran category.
