Ħamrun Spartans have issued a statement to appeal to their fans to show responsible behaviour as the Reds are set to be declared as Malta champions on Friday as the Malta Football Association Executive Committee is set to halt the 2020-21 Premier League due to a ban to organised sport.
The Spartans are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League standings after they beat nearest rivals Hibernians 1-0 in their last fixture played last month.
“Ħamrun Spartans FC is appealing to all Ħamrun supporters to show caution and responsibility at all time after decisions will be taken later on today by the Malta FA Executive Committee,” the club said in a statement.
“Whatever will be the decision of the Executive Committee, and in the light of the current pandemic situation that we find ourselves in, we should show with facts responsibility and maturity.
“Ħamrun Spartans FC along with the Ħamrun Local Council, will be holding meetings with members of the Police Force so it ensured that at all time nothing will be held against the directives of the Health Authorities.
“Although the club is not promoting any organised activity and condemns all activities once they are held, appeals to the Ħamrun fans that once the decision of the MFA EXCO will be to declare Ħamrun Spartans as Malta champions, they should express their joy in conformity with the directives of the Public Health authorities and in any way against these directives.”
Ħamrun Spartans FC said that in the eventuality that the MFA Executive Committee decides that the championship was won by the club, work will be held with the MFA, the various clubs in Ħamrun and the authorites, so that a future date is found, where there will be time, provided the Public Health directives permit it, that a celebration will be held.
“Today is the perfect opportunity for the Ħamrun people to show Malta and Gozo, how to act cautiously and with responsibility,” the club said.
“Ħamrun Spartans FC thanks all our fans for their unique backing.”
