The Mediterranean College of Sport (MCS) and Hudson Group, a renowned international retailer and distributor specialising in sportswear, officially announced their partnership at a special event held at the Sports Pavilion, St Aloysius College.
This collaboration signifies a groundbreaking alliance that merges academic prowess and sporting accomplishment.
The highlight of the event was the premiere of a captivating promotional video produced by local media company Born Bold, which captures the essence of the MCS-Hudson Group partnership.
The video clip will be used for the second part of the student recruitment campaign. This cutting-edge visual masterpiece embodies both parties’ shared vision of delivering unrivalled sporting experiences and academic opportunities.
MCS chairperson, Pio Vassallo, and MCS CEO, Charlo Bonnici, addressed the media event sharing the latest updates about MCS.
Bonnici announced that following a call for applications, the school recruited Mariucca Fenech as the Head of School.
Fenech will be responsible for the academic aspect of the school while George Micallef, formerly the first Head of the National Sport School, has been recruited as Director of Sport Development and Recruitment.
During the press conference it was also announced that MCS has appointed the Head Coach for football, an experienced Italian coach who has worked at high performance with teams in Italy, UK, Portugal, and Finland. His name will be announced later this year.
Indrek Heinmets, Brand Director of NIKE on behalf of Hudson Group and Intersport, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration and his company’s commitment to supporting the academic and sporting aspirations of MCS students.
Pio Vassallo gave an update on the current infrastructural works being carried out on site including the construction of the college and the first 100-bed Sport Hotel in Malta which will include student accommodation.
Preparatory works have also started for the construction of a gymnastics hall and a Sport Science and Research Centre as well as a 25-metre short-course swimming pool. In September the new Fitness Centre will also start operating.
During the press conference it was also announced that MCS will be organising a National Sports Conference on November 8 and 9 focusing on a more holistic approach towards youth sport development.
For this conference parents, students, coaches, sports administrators, and educators will be invited to attend.
