FIFA president Infantino, UEFA chief Ceferin to visit Malta

FIFA president Gianni Infantino and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin have accepted an invitation from the Malta Football Association to visit the islands as part of the local governing body’s celebrations for their 120th anniversary.

During Tuesday’s Council meeting, MFA president Bjorn Vassallo announced that Infantino is set to arrive in Malta in early June and during his stay in Malta he will be taking part in the inauguration of the Museum of Football which will be situated at the Millennium Stand Level 2 at National Stadium.

This is not the first time that Infantino had travelled to Malta.

In 2015, Infantino was in Malta in his former role of UEFA general secretary when the island played as hosts of the UEFA Executive Committee, under the presidency of Michel Platini.

On the other hand, Ceferin is expected to arrive in Malta in September.

During his stay, the Slovenian will attend Malta’s World Cup qualifier against Cyprus at the National Stadium on September 1.

Added to that, Ceferin’s visit will also coincide with the laying of the first stone of the National Football Centre.
