Joseph Debono, President of the Naxxar Table Football Club, met with the Mayor of the local council Anne Marie Muscat Fenech Adami, and Councillor for Sports, Mark Deguara,
to discuss future collaboration between the club and the Local Council. Also present was Council’s Executive Secretary, Paul Gatt.
In Malta all the table football clubs have good relationships with their local councils. For example, last weekend Valletta Subbuteo Club organised the international Open at the premises of the Valletta local council and the Deputy Major came for the presentation.
Mr Debono explained that Naxxar Table Football Club is a new club in Naxxar, in the northern part of the main island of Malta, and despite the challenges created by the Covid-19 pandemic, interest in table football is picking up.
The Mayor promised as much support as possible from the Council since the Council is after more people doing any type of sport.
Once the pandemic is over the Council will be able to start organising activities and there is no doubt that this new club will be involved as well, like all other local associations.
Mr Debono presented the Council with a plaque commemorating this first meeting.
