FC Malaga City Academy are proud to offer world class education opportunities to athletes alongside our full-time football programme through Pathfinder Academy


We believe that it is important for young footballers to pursue a "back up" option to aid them in their careers both on and off the pitch. 


Working alongside world class education providers such as Accelerator School and UK Sports Academy, we provide a wide range of courses to suit the need of players from high school studies to foundation degrees. 


Players will benefit from a modern approach to learning through a mixture of online lectures, face-to-face tuition, seminars, practical activities and work experience. 


By working closely with our providers, we can ensure that players can feasibly complete both football and education programmes to the best of their ability.
