Malta FA push back Mosta-Floriana match by 45 minutes to ensure fans’ safety

The Malta Football Association announced that the Premier League clash between Mosta and Floriana, scheduled for Saturday at the National Stadium, has been put back by 45 minutes to ensure the safety of the fans present.

Mosta were due to face Floriana in the second match of the day at 4.15pm but the local governing body has decided to move the match back to 5pm.

The decision has been taken to ensure there are no repeat of the skirmishes that happened last weekend between fans of Floriana and Hibernians.

In fact, Saturday’s programme at the National Stadium sees Hibernians taking on Valletta in the opening match at 2pm, followed by the Floriana-Mosta clash.

Sources have told the Times of Malta that last Sunday there were a few exchanges between fans of Hibernians and Floriana who were sitting in the same stand.

Next weekend, Hibernians and Floriana fans were scheduled to again share the West Stand and the Malta FA, in a bid to avoid any sort of disturbances, has decided to move the match by 45 minutes to avoid that the two sets of supporters will not meet again.

Therefore, Floriana and Mosta will now be played at 5pm.
