A decision by the MFA Board of Control and Discipline to have one point deducted from Floriana FC in the BOV Premier League table 2013/14 was annulled by the Appeals Board following an appeal by the Greens.
In February, the Board of Control of Discipline had ordered Floriana to pay Birkirkara €20,000 by March 8, 2013 and in case the payment was not affected, a point would be deducted from the actual table.
The Appeals Board argued that the “actual table” referred to the table for season 2012/13 and therefore the MFA Board of Control and Discipline could not deduct the one point from the 2013/14 table.
Therefore Floriana now lie on minus five points after claiming a point in a draw with Naxxar. They had six points deducted by the MFA Licensing Board.
