The event, which will help raise money for Just a Drop and the Street Soccer Foundation, is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will unite the travel industry through football.
Visit Malta’s sponsorship of The Travel United Cup 2023 demonstrates their commitment to using travel as a force for good whilst also supporting the travel industry in coming together for a unique and exciting event.
Tolene van der Merwe, Director UK & Ireland, Malta Tourism Authority said “We are thrilled to confirm our headline sponsorship of the inaugural Travel United Cup with Just a Drop and the Street Soccer Foundation. Visit Malta has a strong affiliation with football through our ongoing sponsorship of Manchester United and we are looking forward to our trade partners and agents getting their teams together to be crowned the first Travel United Cup champions. Travel agents have been a vital support to the recovery of Malta in this post-pandemic world and we are always keen to support trade focused events and initiatives. Not only will this be the battle for the best in the travel industry, but it will also be supporting the vital work of two incredible charities who are changing lives across the world, we look forward to watching the winning team lift the trophy on 7th July.”.
