BOV Premier League

Game over as Hibernians made sure of the BOV Premier League title with a week to go for the end of what has been one of the keenest races for the championship crown in recent years.

With nearest challengers Balzan unable to go beyond a 1-1 draw against ─Žamrun Spartans last weekend, the Paolites’ 3-1 victory over St Andrews ensured that Mark Miller’s team sealed the 12th league title in their history. The Peacocks are surely basking in glory...


As a result Saturday’s match between Hibernians and neighbours Tarxien Rainbows at the National Stadium (kick-off 16.00) pales into insignificance but for statistics and prestige purposes.


However, the new champions would dearly want to have their anointment day celebrated in a fitting way with victory in front of their jubilant supporters who are expected to throng the enclosure sector.


As already acknowledged, Hibernians have had a truly productive league campaign which rewarded them for their application and consistency when fending off the challenge of Balzan and Valletta who had been within touch of a final push at the number one honour of Maltese football until the last three matches.



West Side A and C (enclosure) have been allocated to the Hibernians fans for their team’s final league match against Tarxien Rainbows on Saturday.


Tarxien Rainbows fans are to sit in Millennium D while Millennium F (Family Stand) is earmarked for families and neutral fans.


The gates of the National Stadium open at 14.15 on Saturday and there will be pre-match entertainment until the game kicks off at 16.00.


Supporters are urged to follow the instructions given by the Malta FA stadium personnel and police.
