The Greens were declared winners of the Malta championship on May 25 after the MFA decided to halt the championship. With the Greens occupying the top place, three points ahead of Valletta with six matches remaining, they were declared champions - their 26th in their illustrious history.

The MFA also announced that Floriana were to represent Malta in the forthcoming 2020-2021 UEFA Champions League.
