History

The Manchester United Supporters’ Club Malta is officially recognised by Manchester United Football Club as the oldest Manchester United Supporters Club in the World. The Club was founded in 1959 by John Calleja, the year following the Munich tragedy.

Nowadays, the Club has evolved into a very active organisation having its own spacious clubhouse in Santa Venera. The Club’s main objective is to promote the name of Manchester United and to encourage more support for the team principally in Malta, but also abroad. The Club can boast of several successful achievements such as bringing over to Malta all the trophies which Manchester United have won during the past one and a half decades, including the unique Treble in 1999 and hosting the team on three separate occasions; the recent and most popular one being the visit in 2000 when the entire first team squad were brought over for the game against Birkirkara.

There is a very strong bond between the Malta branch and Manchester United, clearly underlined by the yearly visit to our Islands of high profile officials and players from Old Trafford, some of whom have come over and over again.

The Club has worked very hard to reach the high levels of organization & esteem that it currently enjoys and remains committed to work hard to keep the red flag of Manchester flying high in the Maltese islands.
