The 2009-10 Maltese Cup is the 73rd season since its establishment. It features 21 teams from the Maltese Premier League, the First Division and the champions of the Gozo First Division. The competition will start on 28 October 2009 and will end on 16 May 2010 with the Final from Ta' Qali Stadium. The defending champions are Sliema Wanderers, having won their 20th Maltese Cup last season.

Results and Format Change

When the draw is conducted, four teams receive a bye to the Quarterfinals. Sliema Wanderers will receive a bye because they won the 2008–09 Maltese Cup. The other three teams qualifying directly to the Quarterfinals are Hibernians, Valletta and Birkirkara, for being the three best-placed teams in last year's Premier League.

Starting this year, the competition's format will be changed slightly due to the inclusion into the competition of the reigning Gozo First Division champions. This will be the case for all future editions of this competition unless Gozo FC, a club which is based on Gozo but plays in the Maltese league system, is in either the Maltese Premier League or the Maltese First Division, in which case they would fill the spot reserved for the Gozo champions and the competition would feature 20 teams rather than 21. The inclusion of the Gozo champions means that there will be a single Preliminary Round match to reduce the field to 20 teams for the First Round.
