Charles Azzopardi (born 21 December 1930 in Floriana, Malta — † 28 October 1970) was a Maltese footballer.

Club career[edit]

A centre-forward or right winger, Azzopardi was part of the famous Floriana side of the 1950s, winning three league titles, two FA Trophy medals and a Cassar Cup with them. He then had a two-year spell at Rabat FC before returning to Floriana where he retired at only 26 years of age.

International career[edit]

Azzopardi was part of the Maltese FA U-20 team at the Palermo Youth Tournament in 1949-50. He also played 10 times for a Maltese FA XI, a few years before Malta played his first official international game.

Personal life[edit]

His father George Azzopardi also played for Floriana as well as his uncles Manwel and Tony. Charlie died in 1970, just two months short of his 40th birthday.
