Valletta FC Champions 2016

For the 23rd time Valletta FC were crowned Champions 2016 and as every one knows, no one throws a street party as good as Valletta’s supporters! Malta’s capital city turns into a sea of red and white flags and quite a few ‘sailor’ costumes. This sailor custom refers to Valletta’s rivals Floriana.

Short videos of the event can be seen on my Valletta Champions 2016 Video page or directly on my YouTube channel.
