The BOV Basketball Knockout Competitions for the BOV Men’s First and Second Division were drawn during a press conference held at the Basketball Pavilion in Ta’ Qali. The fixtures were drawn by Paul Sultana, President of the Malta Basketball Association and Peter Perotti, Chief Officer, Personal Banking at Bank of Valletta.

Six teams participate in the BOV Men’s 1st Division Knockout. Starlites and Floriana, who placed first and second respectively in last year’s league go straight to the semi-finals. In the second division, contested by five teams, two teams will contest one quarter-final while the other three teams are drawn directly into the semi-final stage.

“We have already witnessed a number of hard-fought matches this season and we are confident that we shall continue seeing this level of competitiveness in the Knockout competitions,” said Peter Perotti. “The unforgiving format of the knockout ensures that every team brings his A-game in every match if they want to secure the title.”

“This year’s BOV Men’s knockout competitions are being held earlier in the season with the 2nd Division final being played on the 18th December 2016 and the 1st Division final on the 29th January 2017,” said the MBA President. “This was done to enhance the importance of this competition, the second most prestigious title of the year following the League.”
