9 teams compete in two divisions

Fixtures for the BOV Water Polo Winter League 2016 were drawn during a press conference held at the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta’ offices.

The BOV Water Polo Winter League 2016 will see 9 teams competing over 2 divisions, with the U/19 National Team participating both in the BOV Premier and in the BOV First Division out of competition.

In the BOV Water Polo Premier Division, all teams will play a round robin with the top three teams going for the title play-off. In the first division, teams will compete on two rounds with the top team being declared the winner.

The fixtures for these competitions were drawn by Joe Caruana Curran, President of the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta and Anthony Scicluna, Chief Officer at Bank of Valletta, assisted by ASA General Secretary Rita Azzopardi.

‘Before going into the BOV Winter League, I want to take this opportunity on behalf of Bank of Valletta to officially congratulate the Maltese National team on their achievement in the European Championship that ended recently, a historical performance culminating in a victory over Turkey’ said Anthony Scicluna. ‘We also wish to congratulate Stevie Camilleri on being the top-scorer in the top European competition, surely a first for any Maltese sports person’.

‘We are expecting a higher level of play in this year’s BOV Winter League’ said Joe Caruana Curran. ‘The national team players are at a peak, and this will have a ripple effect on their team-mates. Following the positive performance by the youngsters in the European Championship in Baku last year, their participation in both divisions of the BOV Winter league will continue to build on their experience and  technical abilities to ensure the future achievements for Maltese water polo’.

The ASA, in collaboration with all the clubs, reserves the right to move the dates and times of matches as deemed necessary. The final fixtures with the dates and times of all matches will be issued shortly by the ASA.
