Our mission is simple...to provide opportunity to players on both an individual and collective level, as we strive to climb the Spanish league system and with it attract the highest level of player possible outside of the professional game.

We aim to leave no stone unturned and we also place great focus in the physical preparation of our athletes with each team having it's own goalkeeping coach, athletic trainer and physical preparation specialist assigned to each team.

PROFESSIONAL SHOWCASE GAMES
FCMC FEMENINO ALUMNI
During my time at FCMC, the team had a saying known as "UBUNTU". This was an old African proverb that meant "I am because we are." This proved to be a reoccurring theme throughout my year in Spain. I grew not only as a player, but I developed as a person alongside some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I made memories that will be hard to top, friends that will last a lifetime, and an undeniable love for another country. Thanks to connections made at Malaga City, I was offered the opportunity to play in the first division in Greece. I made the move just two months after finishing my time at Malaga to play for AEL, a club rich in history and battling for a Champions League bid. I like to think that who I am today is because of what we were in Spain. This mentality, this lifestyle, and this opportunity should be experienced by everyone who has the chance. Ubuntu forever.
One of the most unique aspects to our program is our extensive relationships with some of the biggest clubs in Spain and Europe. This provides players with regular opportunities to test themselves against some of the top female talents in the world football and gain first hand exposure to professional teams. Check out some of the videos below to get a taste of a showcase matchday.
FC Malaga City Academy is mainly based in Almuñecar; a beautiful Andalusian town known for it's picturesque landscape, rocky beaches and rich cultural history. Located on the Costa Tropical, the region boasts an almost perfect climate with year round sunshine and very little rain. An average population of 30,000, the town provides enough entertainment and leisure activities without being a distraction from football. which we must remind is the main focus.
Almuñecar is located just an hour away from Malaga and Granada, which are both easily accessible via the world class transport links available.
Our football program is a full-time residential accomodation with our players living, eating and playing together over the course of the season - promoting an inclusive family environment in which we take great pride in. Away from the field, players are encouraged to take full advantage of life in Spain and have easy access to local amenities and attractions which will allow our players to immerse themselves in the spanish culture.
Off the field players are supported by an extensive backroom staff including but not limited to logistics coordinators, on-site resident assistants, player liason and other members of the FCMC to provide a strong support network for our players to utilise. But don't just take our word for it, come see it for yourself!
