On 13 July 2009, Swieqi United took part in the first MFA 3rd Division draws of their history. The new club was pitted against Zejtun Corinthians FC, Naxxar Lions FC, Gudja United FC, Attard FC, Xghajra Tornadoes FC, Qrendi FC, Sirens FC, Kirkop United FC and Santa Lucija FC.
The Orange were scheduled to play their historic, first-ever league match against the club from the seaside village of Xghajra. The Quick Keno Division II/III Knock-Out draws were held on Tuesday, 21 July 2009. Swieqi United were drawn against Gudja United FC, Gzira United FC and Zebbug Rangers FC in Group 1.
Swieqi registered its first ever victory on 18 August 2009, in a friendly game vs Kirkop United. Daniel Bianco and Brian Grech scored in a 2–1 win. Swieqi gained its first ever point in the Quick KENO Knockout on Saturday 12 September 2009. Trailing 0–3 against Gzira, Swieqi managed to score 3 goals and could have added a fourth in the final minutes. It was a dramatic end to a pulsating encounter.
Despite being their first season, Swieqi managed to register some positive wins throughout the campaign. On 1 October 2009 at the Centenary Stadium, Ta’ Qali, Swieqi played their first game in the BOV Third Division against Xghajra Tornadoes, winning the game 3–2. The support pushed the team on to claim a marvellous victory on their league debut. Notable wins included 3–1 vs Gudja, 4–0 vs Santa Lucia and 4–3 vs Qrendi. Also, Swieqi played some excellent football but were unlucky to lose 0–1 against table-toppers Naxxar Lions. Swieqi ended the 2009–10 season in 8th place with 16 points.
