European Leagues Deputy Secretary General, Alberto Colombo, visited Malta where he was briefed about the advanced stages of negotiations between the Malta Premier League (MPL) and Malta Football Association (MFA) leading to the creation of a new league in the country.
The two sides consider talks to be progressing well and according to schedule.
Colombo addressed an MPL meeting during which he briefed clubs about the status of European football and the current negotiations with UEFA on the revenue distribution model and solidarity scheme for the upcoming Post 2024 Club Competitions cycle.
“The European Leagues and its network of members are fully engaged to assist the MPL and its clubs in their process of institutional recognition as league organisation which will be instrumental for the successful sporting and commercial development of the clubs in the near future,” said Colombo.
On the other side, MPL chairman, Joseph Muscat thanked European Leagues for the assistance being afforded to the Malta Premier League.
“We are committed to using all available resources to provide fans with a new, more competitive and exciting competition,” said Dr Muscat.
During his visit, Colombo also met MFA president, Bjorn Vassallo.
