The Maltese First Division (also known as the Bank of Valletta First Division due to sponsorship reasons) is the second-highest division in Maltese football, behind the Maltese Premier League and above the Maltese Second Division. The league has been running for many years.

10 teams take part in the league. The top two teams are promoted to the Maltese Premier League, whilst the two lowest-finishing teams are relegated to the Maltese Second Division.

On January 13, 2011, the Malta Football Association decided to expand the league to 12 teams as from season 2011-12.[1]
