The University of Malta Students Futsal Team was founded in 2014, as a joint initiative of the Malta University Sports Club (MUSC), the University Student Council (KSU), and MFA member club Mdina Knights Football Club. In October 2016, the University of Malta Students’ Futsal Team became completely autonomous after achieving official recognition from the University of Malta Senate.
Currently, the Team is participating in its sixth competitive season competing in the Malta Futsal official national competitions. The Executive Committee has remained loyal to its University roots and boasts of a well-balanced mix within its operations by having students, non-students, and foreigners in the team, technical staff, and also executive committee.
Since becoming autonomous, UM Futsal has achieved staggering results both on and off the pitch during these past three seasons. During the 2016/2017 season the Team reached Elite status (thus placing within the top 5 Maltese Futsal Clubs) and during the 2017/2018 season reaching the semi-final of the First Division and being crowned Knockout Cup Champions. These results saw a number of Maltese players being nominated for the prestigious MFPA and MFA Awards and being repeatedly called up with the National Team.
Off the pitch, the UM Futsal Team is the second most followed futsal team on social media and boasting of a huge presence at the University of Malta, placing in 8th place in the KSU RAR Report as well as very positive attendances to all events, both on and off campus.
The University of Malta Futsal Team is a voluntary organisation that aims to promote a lifelong journey and enjoyment of sports, while emphasizing the importance of education and instilling core values of discipline, teamwork, respect, and integrity.
The University of Malta Futsal Team’s vision is to position the organisation to serve as a sports and educational standard in the futsal and esports competitions and as a top student organisation within the University of Malta.
