The 2010–11 Maltese First Division (also known as 2010–11 BOV 1st Division due to sponsorship reasons) began on 23 October 2010 and will conclude on 1 May 2011.

Due to a in-season change regarding the league system,[citation needed] the third-placed team of this season will be promoted to the Maltese Premier League, along with the regular two promotees.

Teams[edit]

Marsaxlokk as 2009–10 champions and Vittoriosa Stars as runners–up were promoted to the 2010–11 Premier League. They were replaced by Dingli and Msida, who were relegated at the end of the 2009–10 Maltese Premier League after finishing in the bottom two places of the table.

On the other end of the table, ninth-placed St. Patrick and last-placed San Gwann were relegated at the end of the 2009–10 season. They were replaced by 2009–10 Second Division champions Lija and runners-up St. Andrew's.

Below is a list of all ten teams participating in the 2010–11 season:

On the 13th March 2011, Msida Saint-Joseph F.C. were mathematically relegated to the 2nd Division following a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Mosta F.C..
