Pio Vassallo

A new, private sports complex, called The Mediterranean College of Sport, has been announced by Pio Vassallo, CEO of Vassallo Group and St Aloysius College, which will be developed on the site of the St Aloysius Sports Complex in Birkirkara.

Through the Group’s subsidiary company dedicated to education and training, Learning Works, the existing complex will be renovated, modernised and expanded into a state-of-the-art private sports college.

Mr Vassallo announced this will be “Malta’s first private sports college which will provide student athletes the opportunity to raise their game and to further their education.”

In a statement, the CEO explained that the project “is part of our mission to have a positive impact on society,” and the Group will invest its resources and skills to create “a unique sports complex for Malta, for the benefit and enjoyment of many students and the general public.”

“My involvement in this project gives me great personal satisfaction as it will be of immense benefit to the College responsible for my own education,” he added.

The sports college will provide several facilities, including a new football ground, gymnasia, a swimming pool, a sport science centre and underground parking. The development also comprises extensive renovations and the upgrading of existing facilities, such as the Sports Pavilion, the gymnasium, cafeteria, and more.
