The Malta Amateur Athletic Association


The Malta AAA, is the governing body of athletics in Malta, and was founded in 1928. The MAAA is run by a Council whose members are elected on a bi-annual basis by delegates from affiliated clubs. The current number of affiliated athletic clubs is 12, most of which enjoy Full-Member status.

Each year, the MAAA organises and sanctions several track and field events together with a significant number of road races. Approximately, 600 athletes are registered annually for MAAA competitions. Athletes are ranged into several age categories

The MAAA organises its Track and Field events at the Matthew Micallef St John Track at Marsa. This track is an eight-lane tartan track which is the property of the Maltese Government. The Athletic Competitions of the 1993 and 2003 Games of the Small States of Europe were held on this track. The athletic equipment that the MAAA owns, include a fully Automatic Photo-Finish Timing System, a False Start System and a Throwing Cage that conforms to the latest IAAF specifications.

The Headquarters of the Association were offically opened in 2003 by the IAAF President M. Lamine Diack and are housed at 6, Racecourse Street, Marsa. Administrative work of the MAAA is carried out at the Headquarters, which also serve as the venue for council meetings, courses and lectures. The Headquarters can boast of offices, a small hall and a collection of books and videos on athletics.
