Premier Division to expand to eight teams for 2013/14 season
After College Cosmos won the Gibraltar Second Division, the GFA officially confirmed what was suspected for a while; next season’s Premier Division will contest eight teams.
Alongside College, Gib Phoenix will also enjoy promotion to the top division, whilst Glacis will get the reprieve of not being relegated this season.
The expansion to eight teams is to meet UEFA criteria, which states any Premier Division must contain at least seven members. Nothing has been confirmed on the number of Second Division or Reserve Division teams that will compete next season, as the GFA will be waiting to see whether new teams join the league structure, or existing teams choose not to participate next season.
