Following four years of success, the Malta Futsal School has announced that former national team player Maria Coppola will be forming part of the school’s coaching staff.
Coppola will be helping the Malta Futsal School to accomplish a future objective, that of promoting Futsal among girls.
Maria Coppola, 39, has been involved in football for over 25 years. She played with various female football teams such as Lija, Hamrun, Melita, Mġarr and abroad in France and USA.
She is now focusing on coaching and works as a TV sports presenter.
Maria Coppola’s aim to help promote Futsal with girls has also caught the eye of the Futsal Malta Association. In fact she has been approached to help the association in creating a female futsal league. Maria has launched a 5-a-side event last Saturday at the Pieta’ Hotspurs club house during which the girls were briefed with the basics of the game.
This website has contacted Maria Coppola who willingly wished to share with us her idea regarding this initiative.
How did your idea of girls playing Futsal flourish?
