The club

Swieqi United FC is a semi-professional, community-based football club situated in Malta. Since its founding in 2009, Swieqi United FC has established itself as the fastest growing club on the island, currently boasting more than eight competitive squads across all age groups and a high-level Academy.


The name Swieqi comes from the word “saqa” which refers to the channelling of water underground. We find reference to it in the notarial deeds of several centuries ago. Nowadays, it is sandwiched between Hal Gharghur to the north, San Gwann to the west, Pembroke to the east and St. Julian’s to the south; however, even shortly after the second world war, Swieqi consisted of fields and a number of valleys – an untouched area one could say.



For many years, people were surprised that such a locality, with a population of over 9,000 people didn’t have a football team. Talks of forming an Ibrag Football Club in the 1990s never materialized and in 2007 an application for a Swieqi Football Club was rejected by the MFA. However, it was always a question of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’ and the youths of Swieqi were always determined to make sure Swieqi was represented in the National Football League. The initial five people who ‘founded’ the club were: Michael Calleja, Ralph Agius Fernandez, Gavin Ellul, Justin Fenech & Mauro Miceli.
