Senglea Athletic Football Club is a professional Maltese football club based in Senglea that currently plays in the Maltese Premier League. Founded in 1943, it took over from the former Senglea United club, which had been formed in 1921 following the demise of Senglea Shamrocks. In 1981, the club was promoted again to the Maltese Premier Division. During that season, Senglea Athletic made history when they contested in the final of the MFA Trophy while being in the Maltese First Division. The club was very near to participate in the European Cup Winners' Cup but unfortunately lost the final.
