The Hibernians Stadium is set to be renamed for former club president Tony Bezzina, Hibernians FC announced in a statement.
Last season’s Premier League runners-up held their Annual General Meeting and Jesmond Abela presented a motion whereby the club’s stadium will be renamed as the Tony Bezzina Stadium, in a tribute to the club’s former president who had passed away earlier this year.
The statement said that Alex Montebello, the club vice-president said that renaming the stadium for Bezzina would be the right tribute to a man who for him the Hibs Stadium was his second home and he had worked so hard to turn the venue into one of the best stadia on the island.
Meanwhile, during the meeting, Ranier Bezzina was installed as the club’s new president.
In his first speech as club president, Bezzina said that he was committed to follow in the footsteps of his father.
Although he knows that it will not be easy to lead one of the top clubs in Malta, Ranier Bezzina had no doubt that with the help and loyalty of the members, who for many years worked under the long presidency of his father, they can help to bring back the glory days at the club.
During the meeting, Bezzina spoke about a number of projects that the club were planning to undertake in the near future so that they can maximise the assets owned by the club.
