Gatorade League and KO draws made

League champions Luxol were handed a comfortable start to their title defence when they were drawn against newcomers Sliema as the draws of the Gatorade Futsal League and KO competition were held at the Corradino Pavillion.

Meanwhile last year’s play-off finalists Valletta and Hamrun will start their commitments against Sirens and Lija respectively.

On the other hand, the St Andrews side received a bye  alongside Sirens  to the second round of the KO competition.

Matches from the first round will be played between October 5 and 9 while the league  is scheduled to start in November.

Consequently, the FMA will decide Luxol’s opponent in the Gatorade Super Cup as last year’s KO finalists Balzan dropped their participation.

The draws resulted as follows:
