Qrendi-Qormi match to resume on 10th January, 2018

Wednesday, December 20, 2017, 14:22

The BOV First Division League match between Qrendi and Qormi, abandoned after 15 minutes of the first half on Tuesday, 19th December, 2017, will resume on 10th January, 2018 at the Centenary Stadium.

The match was abandoned after an unfortunate incident following Qrendi’s equaliser led to one of the goalposts being damaged. The score was 1-1 at the time.

Efforts by Centenary Stadium personnel to repair the damaged goalpost proved futile, leaving referee Alex Johnson with no option but to abandon the match.

The Qrendi-Qormi match will now resume on 10th January, 2018 at 19.00 (7pm) from the 15th minute in line with the Malta Football Association’s Competition Rules.

Article 15 (iv) of the MFA Competition Rules stipulates:

 

(iv) If a competitive match cannot be played or falls short of its stipulated duration due to circumstances which are not attributable to any of the clubs concerned the match shall be played on another date. 

 

Provided that when the match is played on such other date, the match shall resume from the point in time of the match in which the match was abandoned or discontinued, and the remaining match time must be played.
