Floriana FC will be representing Malta in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round after the Licensing Board confirmed its decision to award the Greens the UEFA license.
The two letters sent by Valletta and Gzira United were referred to the board but after analysing their complaints, the decision to award the licence to Floriana was confirmed.
