The APS Bank football team participated in the Champions Bank Tournament held recently in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Prior to heading off for the Tournament the squad met with Senior Management at Head Office, Swatar.

The team performed very well and managed to place in the top 8 from 44 participating teams, scoring a total of 12 goals and conceding just one. Unfortunately, the APS team was eliminated after losing on penalties in the Quarter Final against the eventual tournament winners from Montenegro.

The players also had the opportunity to meet renowned football personalities such as Zambrotta (World Cup Winner 2006), Skomina (Champions League Final 2019 referee) and Rizzoli (World Cup Final 2014 referee), who was also the referee in one of the tournament matches played by APS Bank.

Etienne Vella, Team Coach, commented: “We are very glad that our hard work and training of the past months has paid off. We are very happy with our performance and at managing to reach the Quarter Finals. This was ultimately a positive and enjoyable experience for all the team members and we look forward to our upcoming engagements in Malta as the season gets to start.”
