8th July 2004- The Malta Knights are proud to announce their inaugural fixtures, which will take place within close proximity to the majority of the Maltese community outside of Malta itself at the Melita Stadium in Sydney, Australia.
Ironically, it is the ?British Defence Forces? who will be touring in September that will conclude their visit to Australia by making a big mark in Malta Knights history by being their first ever opponents.
Less than a month later, Malta host the flamboyant Fiji A team who are sure to provide some scintillating football and yet another strong challenge to the Malta Knights.
Details of the fixtures are shown below and further game day information will be announced closer to the date.
