Valletta Football Club and the VBL Group, have released a sneak peek of their ambitious project of regenerating the Salinos Grounds into the Valletta Sports Club.
The project, located right at the entrance of the City, is focused around what the Valletta community needs,” Valletta FC and the VBL Group said in a joint statement.
“The Valletta Sports Club will offer modern sport facilities covering a variety of disciplines, childcare and other educational facilities and a 6,000 square meter lush garden which can be enjoyed by both residents and visitors of Valletta alike,” the statement said.
“The project will be made sustainable by high end retail outlets and a number of food and beverage concepts with a focus on healthy eating, locally sourced products and sustainable farming.
“Through a mix of local and foreign talent, VFC and VBL will deliver a project for future generations to enjoy and be proud of, while keeping an eye on Valletta’s past and its rich heritage.”
Dr Andrei Imbroll, the VBL Group chairman, said that this project mirrors his company’s total commitment towards Valletta FC and Malta’s capital city.
“We will not cut corners on anything we do in Valletta and especially the Valletta Sports Club project located at the entrance of our beautiful Capital,” Dr Imbroll said.
“Our commitment to Valletta is total. At Valletta Football Club we found a group of people led by the Club President Alexander Fenech with a clear vision of where they want to take the club and a rare pride in having the opportunity to serve the club and the Valletta community. This passion for this City unites us. “
