Maltese football clubs are top scorers in migrant inclusion
An ongoing project that is being spearheaded by the Malta Football Association brings Maltese and migrants together on the pitch for the first time. Project co-ordinator Peter Busuttil tells Ramona Depares that it’s all about creating a community.
It’s Wednesday evening and the Mqabba football ground is a hive of activity. Some youngsters are warming up quietly in a corner; others are practising their dribbling skills, passing the ball to their peers, giggling and trying to make sure that the ‘rivals’ don’t get their hands – well, feet – on it.
