Adrian Casha announces intention to seek re-election as MFA vice president

Adrian Casha has announced that he will re-contest the Malta Football Association elections next March for a second term as vice president.

The former FIFA referee was elected for the first time in 2019 and is now seeking a second term in office. Casha is the second MFA vice-president who announced his re-election bid this week after last Sunday Matthew Paris also announced his intention to contest the March 15 elections.

“Four-and-a-half years have passed from when you decided to give me the honour and privilege to serve you as MFA vice-president,” Casha said in a letter to club members and delegates.

“As I had promised you, during this period I remained very close to you to understand better the needs of clubs and member associations and act in the best interest of Maltese football. We lived together during challenging times when I formed part of an administrative team that put into practice a strategy based on infrastructural development, technical improvement of the game, updated systems of talent identification, a wider stretch of coaching courses, and a regulation system that respects our obligations as full members of FIFA and UEFA.

“No doubt, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done but I am proud to have given my contribution so that we reached several ambitions aimed at taking Maltese football to a higher level, both at an administrative and technical level.

“We also offered attractive financial incentives to clubs, so that promising young Maltese players find their space and show their potential despite the huge influx of foreigners.

“I was involved in the set up of Memorandum of Understandings that we signed with all member associations so that they guarantee support from the MFA to whoever plays football at amateur level, coaches and referees associations as well as a bigger investment in Futsal and Beach Soccer.

“It is with great satisfaction that I announce that on Friday, March 15 I will again be contesting the election of MFA vice-president with the belief and determination that we will make the most of the collective effort to secure bigger achievements in Maltese football.”
