BOV Premier League

Due to issues related to COVID-19, Birkirkara FC’s BOV Premier League fixture against Floriana FC, scheduled to take place this Saturday (31st October, 2020) at the Hibernians Stadium (kick-off 14.00), will be rescheduled to a later date.

The match is being postponed in accordance with the Malta FA's special rules applicable to domestic competitions due to COVID-19 as Birkirkara FC don’t have a minimum of 16 players (including two goalkeepers) available from their squad list.


In line with the Malta FA Return to Play Protocol, the Association’s medical team has promptly conducted the contact-tracing assessment after Birkirkara FC reported that a number of players have tested positive for COVID-19. Based on the outcome of the contact-tracing exercise, several Birkirkara FC squad members are either in self-isolation or mandatory quarantine.




The BOV Premier League fixture between Ħamrun Spartans and Gżira United, tomorrow (Saturday) at the Hibernians Stadium, has been moved to 14.00 instead of 18.15 as originally scheduled.
