Hibernians Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Paola, Malta. The Hibernians football ground was inaugurated on 9 November 1986. Hibernians became the first Maltese club to have their own football pitch. Nonetheless, Hibernians play most of their league matches in the National Stadium in Ta' Qali, since nearly all the Maltese Premier League matches are played there.
The ground is used by Hibernians for their everyday training sessions. It is also used by the Malta Football Association to host matches from the Maltese First Division. The Malta national rugby union team have recently started to use the ground for their international matches.
Hibernians played their first European match on this pitch on the 23rd July 1996 when they played against Uralmash Yekaterinburg in the Intertoto Cup, losing the match 2-1.

Famous quotes containing the word ground:
“The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard,
The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky,
Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard;
Enough that he heard it once; we shall hear it by and by.”
—Robert Browning (18121889)
