Located within the Millennium Stand, the Malta Museum of Football holds hundreds of items related to this much-loved game, and aims to commemorate landmark moments over the past 124 years of Malta Football Association-history, as well as honour clubs, coaches, players, and officials whose names are forever tied with the game.

This modern museum, which opened in June 2021, spans several rooms and areas, with visitors able to see old shirts, programmes, trophies, badges, and pennants from international games. Some unusual artefacts that many do not expect to see are goalposts from Gzira’s Empire Stadium, where the first international match for Malta was played in 1957.

The museum is open every day from Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm, excluding public holidays, and ticket prices are pretty affordable: €5 for adults, €3.50 for seniors, and €2.50 for children under 12.

Whether you’re a football fanatic or someone who loves exploring yesteryear’s treasures, this place is certainly worth a visit.
