Serie A giants Fiorentina will be in Malta for a winter training camp between 5 and 11 December, Tourism minister Konrad Mizzi said on Tuesday.

The Florentine club will play in the Visit Malta Tournament, a triangular tournament that will be played on the 9 January and which will see the Fiorentina face off against local clubs Hibernians and Gzira United on 9 January.

Serie A clubs have held winter training camps in Malta over the league's Christmas recess on a number of occassions in the past as this allows them to train in a milder climate than they otherwise would in Italy.
