GFA president Dr Samuel Azzopardi submits nomination for MFA vice-president seat

Gozo FA president Dr Samuel Azzopardi announced that he had submitted his nomination for the role of vice-president of the Malta Football Association.

The Malta FA will be hosting its General Assembly on March 15, during which the local governing body of football will hold the elections for president and vice-president.

“I am enthusiastic to see the beautiful game further develop in Malta within an association that is fully aware of the needs of its members,” Dr Azzopardi said.

“I feel that I can give more to the football family in Malta.  I’ve been a member of the executive of the MFA and president of the GFA for the past nine years and this is the natural step to take driven by the passion for local football.”

Dr Azzopardi is the latest candidate to submit his nomination for the post of vice-president.

Current incumbents Dr Matthew Paris and Adrian Casha have both announced their intention to seek another term in office.

Apart from that, Dr Peter Fenech, president of Lija Athletic, and Pierre Miceli, president of Marsaskala FC have also submitted their nomination for the vice-president role.

Marsaskala FC President Pierre Miceli will also contest for a Vice-President post like Fenech will, and there is talk that the field of candidates could yet expand further.

MFA Executive member Dana Farrugia is also contesting for the third vice-president seat which must be filled by a female candidate.
