VisitMalta is the New Destination Partner for both IPF and EPF

From the 2024 season, both the IPF and the EPF will have a new strategic partner on board. VisitMalta will join both federations as their “Official Destination Partner”.

As a result of the most successful IPF Classic Open Powerlifting World Championships held in St. Julian’s in Malta in 2023, Malta Tourism Authority have decided to come on board as a strategic partner.

This will have the effect that international events, both World and European, will be held regularly in Malta. Malta Tourism Authority also wants to promote the destination among the powerlifting community and will be present at all IPF and EPF events.

IPF President Gaston Parage: “To have VisitMalta as a new partner will give the IPF a great opportunity to improve the standards once again”.

EPF President Bjørn Astad “To have such a prestigious partner with us now shows that powerlifting in general but also the EPF is on the right path”.

Mr. Carlo Micallef, CEO from Malta Tourism Authority: “VisitMalta is proud in partnering with the two biggest powerlifting federations in the world, and we are looking forward to bringing the VisitMalta brand to many great events in Europe and the whole World, but of course especially to welcome the powerlifters on a regular basis in Malta to experience our wonderful country.”
