And with this mentality we take great pride in seeing our FCMC family grow each year and creating new working relationships with talented players from all over the world.

FCMC ACADEMY ALUMNI
When I joined back the Academy back in 2019, I felt nothing but belief towards me in helping me achieve my dream. With that, came friends from all over the world that I was fortunate enough to meet. I feel the academy here is a very special place because they really do believe in helping you develop as a player on and off the field. The environment they produce for young aspiring players is excellent and has shown a positive impact for my teammates as well as for myself and I hope many other players can experience this for years to come.
