Malta signs the EHF Master Plan 360 Cooperation Agreement

The Malta Handball Association has today signed a cooperation agreement with the European Handball Federation to become one of the first three European nations to benefit from the new EHF Master Plan. The long-term objective of this agreement is the sustainable growth of handball in Malta. A detailed and tailor-made project was developed, and the primary focus will be set on the development of young handball players. This project will be divided into a number of phases and includes other initiatives that will also take place during this period.

Ian Psaila and Alan Grima, Vice-President and Operations Director of the MHA, signed this cooperation agreement during the EHF Men’s Champions League Final4 event taking place this weekend in Cologne, Germany. Michael Wiederer and Martin Hausleitner, President and General Secretary signed the agreement on behalf of the EHF.

This is a very important step for the local handball community that reflects the bold decision taken by the MHA Council during the pandemic period to develop a long-term strategic plan that engraves a way forward for Maltese handball. Similar agreements are set to be signed with other stakeholders in the coming weeks.
