We have made some good signings and the objective will be to challenge for the title. This tournament will give us an excellent test and a chance for me to evaluate the players."
President Justin Fenech, in his comments, welcomed Worcestor Futsal Club, Académie Sportive Soummam Akbou Futsal and International Futsal Alliance Nepal to Malta and looked forward to increased collaboration on an international level with clubs who share the Club's passion for Futsal. "Malta is a great destination for sport and Swieqi United aims to host a number of international events on a yearly basis. Furthermore, I hope these events will help encourage further investment in the sport, both from the side of the Government, as well as the MFA."
