Joseph Muscat welcomes move as Malta Premier League joins giants in European Leagues

Joseph Muscat welcomes move as Malta Premier League joins giants in European Leagues
Nov 18 2022 Share

“There are things which seem impossible until they are done.” These were the words of Malta Premier League chairman Joseph Muscat after the Malta Premier League (MPL) was accepted as a member of European Leagues (EL).

The Maltese body now joins international football giants in the newly-formed organisation which represents over 1000 clubs in 31 European countries. The EL calls itself ‘the common voice of competition organisers at domestic level and professional football club employers at European level.’

Muscat stated that there were people who thought rival football clubs could not gather around a table to discuss and agree, develop a structure to set the pediments for a professional league and join other European clubs, including football giants.

The former Prime Minister and current MPL chairman went on to thank the clubs within the Malta Premier League.
