EVER DREAMED OF PLAYING IN THE
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE?
A LITTLE ABOUT EUROPA POINT
Since the inception of the club the success has been incredible with two league cups in two seasons, promotion secured to the Gibraltar Premier League and now Europa Point has become an official feeder club to League One Chesterfield FC. With such similar philosophies between the academy and Europa Point FC with a player centered approached focused solely on the development of young footballers, when the opportunity to create a partnership became a possibility it was a very natural decision and something we at the academy are extremely excited about.
- Direct access to senior level football for our academy squad
- Official feeder club to League One Chesterfield FC
- Striving to be a vehicle for young players to showcase their talent
Well now due to the exciting partnership between FC Malaga City Academy and Gibraltar Premier League club Europa Point FC this can be a realistic target for our academy graduates!! Europa Point FC is a football team from Gibraltar who will play in the Gibraltar Premier Division for the 2016/17 season. Formed in 2014 by Club Chairman John Gontier, Europa Point FC is a team with a unique footballing philosophy. The aim- to give second chances to talented young players who have been released by other clubs and instill ‘old heads’ on young shoulders through senior football exposure. ‘A Stepping Stone Club’ is the clubs strapline. With the incentive of possible European football, with qualification to the UEFA Champions League and Europa League competitions. Europa Point FC are striving to be a vehicle for young players to showcase their talent with the aim of being a platform in getting these players into top level European professional football.
From the 2016/17 season Academy Director George Jermy has been appointed as joint first team manager of Europa Point FC and will now see the possibility for 2-3 academy players to be offered a graduation into the senior squad of the Gibraltar Premier league side each season. Added to the direct access to senior level football for our academy squad, is the mouth-watering prospect of European football in the form of UEFA Champions League and Europa League that awaits the league and cup winners in Gibraltar as a result of the full UEFA membership granted to the British Overseas territory on the 24th of May. The pathway from the academy to UEFA Champions Leagues is a dream for everyone involved…but a dream that is very realistic!!
