2010–11 Gozo First Division

The Gozitan First Division, also known as Melita First Division for sponsorship reasons, is the top level of the Gozitan football league system. Under this system there is another division under the First Division, the Second Division.

The Melita First Division is based on three rounds with each team playing each other three times, thus the teams in the First Division play 18 games each in total. The season is usually held between September and April. At the end of the season, the bottom club is relegated to the Second Division and the winner of the Second Division is promoted to next season's First Division. A promotion/relegation play-off game is held between the 6th placed First Division team and the team placing second in the Second Division.

The majority of matches are played at the Gozo Stadium or at Sannat Ground.
