Phoenix Sports Club was born in 2010 when its founders, Mr. Orlando Bonnici, now Owner/President and Mr. Clinton Mifsud, now General Secretary, decided to start a new handball team to compete in the National League. This was the first introduction of a new team after many years and the club quickly became popular and grew in numbers.
With a strong footing in the game of handball, Mr. Stephen Zammit was appointed as CEO of the club and under his guidance and advice the club grew into other sports. The club’s first move was into Futsal, however due to change in local regulations the club had to shut down its futsal team. Today the club is represented in National Leagues of Basketball, Handball and Volleyball with nurseries in every sport. The club is also the first sporting entity to introduce the game of Floorball in Malta and is working hand in hand with the Malta Floorball Association to help this sport grow locally. The club has over 200 active athletes, not only local, but coming from a number of different countries.
The aims of Phoenix SC are clear, to promote sports and hopefully one day transcend into a fully professional club with athletes who play their sports for a living and not just out of passion and love for the game. The club unfortunately doesn’t own its own premises and it is in a constant struggle to secure training venues which are up-to-standard to its requirements. The future holds many plans and new strategies and the committee leading Phoenix SC will work hard to strengthen the club in every aspect.
Currently the club has teams competing in Basketball, Handball, Volleyball National Leagues/Competitions and has about 50 athletes training competitively in Floorball. For more information about the club you feel free to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, FACEBEOOK or TWITTER pages.
