#FCMC To Face Getafe CF In Double-Header

FC Malaga City Academy Under 18s and Under 19s will take on Getafe CF on Saturday May 8th at Ciudad Deportiva Getafe CF.

Originally founded in 1946, Getafe CF have been a mainstay in La Liga since 2004 - and have reached the Copa del Rey final twice in their history.


The Madrid-based team finished 8th in La Liga last season, and compete at Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, a 17,000 capacity stadium.


During the 2018/19 season, Getafe secured a fifth-placed finish - and qualified for the 2019/20 Europa League, where they reached the Round of 16.


Last time out, FC Malaga City U18s secured a 1-0 victory over Getafe thanks to a first-half strike from Karim Satmarean.


#FCMC U18s and U19s will go head-to-head with the club on May 8th 2021 at Ciudad Deportiva Getafe CF, with LIVE streaming details provided in due course.


George Jermy, Academy Director, commented: “We’re really excited to be able to face Getafe CF once more - a club we have built a strong relationship with over recent years.

“It was a fantastic moment for everybody when we picked up a 1-0 win against them last season - so we’re hoping to do the same this time around!


“Getafe are an established club and have competed in La Liga for 16 successive seasons - so this is a great opportunity and occasion for our boys to go and showcase their abilities."
