During an interview with MaltaDaily’s Fabian Demicoli, Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo spoke about the connection between the islands and the connection with the prestigious football team of Manchester United. 

Bartolo was asked what sort of return the deal with the team will have for the Maltese islands. 

The minister first responded by highlighting how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the deal, giving it quite a setback. However, as the world opened back up from the restrictions, Bartolo revealed that the government worked on making sure that the new contract will include more benefits which were not previously present. 

The Minister revealed that the Manchester United women’s team will be making their way to Malta in the coming weeks to attend a training camp. 

The Minister said that as women’s football in the UK gets a massive boost, Malta will be visited by an immensely prominent team. 

Bartolo also said that more marketing opportunities with Manchester United are being discussed for the future, given the size of the brand. This is helping Malta to reach new areas of marketing which, without the massive Manchester United brand, it would not have been able to reach. 

Bartolo also highlighted how a goal was scored during a match wherein the logo of Visit Malta was showing. This shows the breadth of exposure Malta as a tourist destination is getting through such deals, said the Minister.

According to Facebook page Maltese Islands Weather, 2022 has so far been the second driest year from the past 10 years. 

Between January 1st and October 31st 2022, an amount of 210.7mm was registered in terms of rain fall, preceded only by the year 2016. Across the same period, 2016 saw just 122.0mm. 

The wettest month out of these past 10 years was 2018, with 416.7mm of rainfall registered. It was followed by the following year of 2019 at 395.3mm. 

Even though it’s difficult to predict whether this can change in the remaining two months, next week is set to bring the full extent of winter weather to the islands. 

According to Facebook page Aggornament tat-Temp, there is an 80% likelihood of rain as of the start of this weekend. Winds will climb up to Force 6 and 7 come Saturday, with temperatures dropping to 20°C by then as well.
