FC Malaga City Academy U18s will take on Atlético de Madrid on February 8th at Ciudad Deportiva Atlético de Madrid in yet another high profile showcase match this season!
Founded in 1903, Atlético de Madrid are one of Spain's most successful clubs - winning major domestic silverware on 20 separate occasions.
Another momentous occasion for our academy as FC Malaga City Academy will take our Under 18s to face a renowned European academy, one of the most famous academies in Spain and Europe. Academy graduates from the club include some of the country's most iconic names in David De Gea, Saúl Ñíguez, Koke, Alvaro Morata and Rodri.
This is our 8th consecutive year we take a squad to Atlético de Madrid, George Jermy spoke with us about the opportunity for FCMC.
“Amazing to be returning to play against a Champions league giant of world football. A long standing La Liga academy partner who have always shown interest in all that we are trying to do here at FCMC.
It’s incredible to see the work of Simone and the growth in the last 10 years which has seen a new first team stadium (up there as a world leader), a new training centre and a host of trophies across the club.
An inspiration for any young player and for us as a club alike"
When FCMC last played against Atlético de Madrid they produced some fantastic performances in entertaining and competitive encounters. The FC Malaga City Academy coaching staff are very confident the work of the team so far this season will provide us with a level of performance to compete with the Spanish giants again this year.
We wish all the guys traveling to Atlético de Madrid an unforgettably successful experience and to continue making everyone at FC Malaga City Academy proud!
