The Member Clubs Licensing Board of the Malta Football Association met on Tuesday to evaluate the UEFA license applications submitted by clubs.
Eight BOV Premier League Clubs have obtained a UEFA license for season 2021/2022 after meeting the licensing criteria established by UEFA.
The eight clubs are Balzan, Birkirkara, Ħamrun Spartans, Hibernians, Gżira United, Mosta, Santa Lucia and Valletta.
Four other clubs, namely Floriana, Sirens, Sliema Wanderers and Żejtun Corinthians withdrew their application.
In accordance with Rule 10 (iii)(b) of the Regulations and with the application of Rule 3 (a)(i)(c) of the Association’s Disciplinary Procedures and Sanctions (Section IX), the Member Clubs Licensing Board imposed a fine of ten thousand Euro (€10,000) on Birkirkara FC for failing to communicate a significant change in their payables following submission.
With regard to the women’s competitions, the Member Clubs Licensing Board has approved the license application submitted by the Birkirkara FC Women’s Team.
The Member Clubs Licensing Board is an independent body approved by the Council which assesses licensing applications as mandated by and in adherence to UEFA regulations.
