The annual Tipsport Malta Cup will be held for the fourth consecutive year after MFA SportsPlus announced the four European teams that will be travelling over to the Maltese islands between January 16 and January 25.
High-profile side AaB Aalborg, who hail from Denmark, will be one of the top-flight European sides participating in this tournament which will be played entirely at the National Stadium.
AaB are currently fourth in Denmark’s top-flight with 28 points after 17 games. As the Danish league will pause for the traditional winter break during the months of December and January, four-time Denmark champions AaB will see this tournament as an opportunity to prepare for their remaining four league outing, starting by their away trip to leaders Midtjylland.
Another notable club taking part in this tournament will be Spartak Trnava of Slovakia. The Slovakian side faced Mosta in the first qualifying round of the newly-launched UEFA Europa Conference League back in June. Spartak Trnava boast former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel in their squad.
Last year’s Tipsport Malta Cup winners WSG Tirol of Austria (picture) will be making their return to this tournament together with SK Sigma Olomouc of Czech Republic.
