The FA Trophy, formerly known as the U*Bet FA Trophy or Rothman's Trophy, is a football competition that takes place in Malta.
Widely known as the F.A. Trophy, it was a gift from the British by The Football Association in 1933. This followed a match between England and Italy, played in Rome in May 1933, to where a number of pro-British Maltese supporters travelled to support the English side. In recognition, the Football Association donated a silver trophy to be played on the model of the F.A. Cup.
The cup's holders are Floriana, who won the cup by defeating Valletta 1-0. The team who wins the cup, wins a place in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. This competition is now played on a knock-out basis between the clubs in the Premier and First Division.
The cup winners' play a match for the Maltese Super Cup against the champions of the season.
