Malta to send figolli to Premier League and Serie A stadiums
Malta has sent figolli for football supporters, players and coaches of the Premier League and Serie A stadiums for Easter Sunday. The massive distribution of the Maltese figolla took place prior the kick-off of the games.
The move came after contrasting and unexpected results achieved from some teams during the UEFA Champions league earlier this week. Big names such as Juventus and Manchester City were harshly eliminated, while on the other hand, Ajax and Tottenham reached the semi-final stage.
Emotions where sky high for some players and coaches last week. We saw the like of Cristiano Ronaldo calling his mum telling her that he cannot do miracles, to an upset Pep Guardiola questioning the VAR and their cancelled goal. Some were upset to the extent of wanting to change their name, like Juventus manager, Massiliano Allegri (Cornuto).
The Maltese public is well known around the world for its generosity. If contractors want to build, they are given land, if migrants are drowning, they are left nearly drowning and then eventually saved, and the list of generosity goes on and on. Easter is an important feast and Malta wanted to be at the upfront to be generous on such a day too.
The idea came around from some geeks at Loonynews by giving it a dare putting a post on Facebook asking the general public to send to its headquarters some delicious figolli. The Facebook post read “Are you ready to put a smile on footballers and supporters this Easter?! This week was hard for some of them, and better for others. They both deserve to taste some of our generosity and figolli heritage. Are you in? We are! Let us make some people smile and a bit more fat with our figolli!”
Confectionaries and dolcerias started calling from all over to help in this ambitious mission. Let’s face it, it is a good marketing stunt for the Maltese figolla filled with tasty fresh almonds. Many sent in their figollas with the hope that it landed in the hands of some big names in football, and preferably them taking a selfie with the figolla. In such instances, imagination can play funny tricks.
To be given to those in need of some tender, love and care. Malta did such a gesture to share its heritage of figolli with supporters, players and coaches alike to give them a taste of our sweetness, of what Maltese people are made of.

This initiative came also as a measure to tackle obesity in Malta. The Maltese population can do with some distribution of fat and being the generous people that we are, this was another altruistic gesture towards others.
Premier League clubs, Serie A clubs and their thousands of supporters were ecstatic of receiving this gift from Malta and thanked the country for its generosity in such difficult and happy times respectively. All cheered while dunking in their figolla and they lived happily after.
