MUSC - Malta University Sports Club
The Malta University Sports Club is the only student organisation within the University of Malta that deals with sport and fitness. Since its inception in 1925, MUSC has always been involved in promoting sports and an active lifestyle amongst students while developing the concept of ‘university sports’ on a nation-wide level. MUSC’s mission is to have every student in Malta doing some form of physical activity as often as possible because while being a student involves a lot of studying and sitting at a desk, MUSC believes that you can be even more successful in your studies if you find the time to exercise.
MUSC organises many staple events on the University of Malta campus which numerous students look forward to year after, including the Interfaculty Football Tournament and Sports Fest, an annual two day celebration of sports, fitness and physical activity which takes place on Quadrangle. MUSC works very closely with KSU, the University Student Council, and many other organisations and collaborates with them on a range of important events. A very important collaboration was that with KSU and Mdina Knights FC where MUSC teamed up with these two organisations to form a University Futsal Team which made its debut in the National Futsal League in September 2014.
MUSC forms part of two major university sports associations: FISU, the International University Sports Association, and EUSA, the European University Sports Associations, as well as ENAS, the European Network of Academic Sports Services. Being a member of these organisations gives MUSC the opportunity to participate in the European University Games, one of the largest multi-sport events in Europe, and the Universiades, the second largest multi-sport event in the world after the Olympic Games.
