Six BOV Premier League clubs have obtained a UEFA licence for season 2020-21 after meeting the licensing criteria established by UEFA and the guidelines issued by the European football body on April 23, 2020.
The six clubs are Balzan FC, Floriana FC, Gżira United FC, Hibernians FC, Sirens FC and Valletta FC.
Four other clubs, namely Birkirkara FC, Ħamrun Spartans FC, Mosta FC and Sliema Wanderers FC, withdrew their application.
