A total of 19 coaches have successfully completed the first UEFA Pro licence course organised by the Malta FA's technical centre.

The centre's coach education department received positive feedback from UEFA Jira Panel member Dany Ryser, who oversaw the assessments - the final stage of a rigorous 450-hour course.

Excellent results were achieved across the board, confirming the hard work put in by the candidates and the high quality of education offered by the Malta FA in all its coaching courses. Ryser confirmed that the Maltese coaches had demonstrated great competence and willingness to work hard in order to achieve the required standard.

The Malta FA congratulated the newly qualified Pro licence holders on their achievements and presented certificates to each of them, as well as to those who completed the UEFA Elite Youth A licence course at the end of May.

The Malta FA’s coach education department is headed by Stephen Grima, with Robert Gatt as director of the technical centre.
