Established in 1928, the Maltese Olympic Committee is the supreme and exclusive authority on matters relating to Malta’s representation at all games falling under the jurisdiction of the International Olympic Committee. The Committee’s main commitment is that of encouraging, promoting and funding of Maltese participation in the Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Games of the Small States of Europe and Mediterranean Games just to mention a few.

In Games such as the Small States of Europe and Mediterranean Games, our athletes have fared extremely well, whilst medals in the Olympic Games have so far eluded our athletes, we have seen substantial improve-ment in timings and placing – this is the result of the commitment that athletes have shown and the fruit of our investment in appropriate training programmes. The up and coming athletes are seeking to achieve new heights in the years to come and we aim to prepare their way ahead in the best possible way.


To educate youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind within the Olympic spirit, which requires a mutual understanding and spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.

This is achieved by working closely with all the 47 National Associations, which are affiliated to the Committee by means of a number of initiatives such as consultancy services, seminars and programmes.

Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of good example, social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.

The Maltese Olympic Committee continues to invest in better awareness and opportunities for the Maltese athletes, seeking to blend sport with culture and education. We work all year-round to promote sport as an agent for positive social change. Locally, we are the voice for sport, and a hub for development. We work towards having the best environment for the development of our coaches and athletes and thus being the catalyst for excellence.
