The Malta Football Association is today glad to announce the launch of its New Official Website www.mfa.com.mt
For quite some time, it has been felt that although MFA.com.mt did offer potential, there was ample space for improvement and therefore the necessity to upgrade. This to raise our website to a level which is more in line with today’s needs, and to include in it features which are more appealing to today’s visitor and that will open new openings to the MFA to engage with football fans and followers, as well as making it possible for the association to create opportunities for new revenue streams.
The MFA has various roles to play and is involved in the organisation of a range of activitiesand it is therefore very important for its electronic portal to cater for these activities.
All the features included in the previous website have been kept and improved. However,MFA felt the need that it was time to;
