Mtarfa F.C. were founded in 2006 and were for the first time admitted to the MFA 3rd division in season 2007/08. The first official competitive match was played in the 1st of September 2007, in the 2nd and 3rd division Knock Out Cup against Melita. For the past 13 seasons, Mtarfa's senior team has been playing in the island's Thrid Division football league, and its best standing position result was the 7th place (from 15 clubs) during season 2012/13, a period were the club even challenged from a promotion slot. Mtarfa F.C. are now playing in the newly set-up MFA Amateur League at the Maltese football level.
