Only a city as football conscious as Valletta has supporters who create a livelier scene during important keen matches. Valletta’s supporters are regarded as the most vociferous and partisan of any football team in Malta.
In the nineteenth century, Valletta did not have one single official club but several clubs in every corner of the City. They were rivals.
These teams had their quarters at Coffee Shops or Wine Bars. These famous teams were Valletta United, Valletta City, Celtics, Youngsters, Regent, Shamrocks, Heroes, Gunners, Rovers, Knights, Swans, Olympiads, St. Paul’s, Prestons, Swifts, Valstars, Valletta City Market and many others.
