LEARN MORE ABOUT THE MISSION OF FCMC
Since our conception in 2013 our goal has been to establish one of our senior sides as a full-time professional team, providing a pathway for the talented youth players in our academy ranks to progress into a professional senior environment in Spain. Years later we are very close to reaching this goal and we continue to improve the infrastructure surrounding our players each year to provide more opportunity and resources than ever before.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR CLUB STRUCTURE
When looking at the professional football scene across a number of different countries we identified a huge gap in the industry in terms of the development of young players between the ages of 18-23. With many young players thrown into a senior environment and judged accordingly at such a young age, we wanted to challenge this idea by creating a club structure that provided young talented players with a smoother transition into the senior level and provided more opportunity for playing time and development.
UEFA LICENSED COACHING STAFF
With countless years of experience and many of the staff having had experience playing/coaching at the professional level, each player can expect to be pushed and tested on a daily basis as we work towards collective and individual goals. Our philosophy is to play an attractive style of football centred around a detailed level of organisation and understanding of the dynamics of the modern game. All of our coaching staff is UEFA Licensed and will work with players to improve all aspects of their game, benefiting them not only during their at FCMC but for the rest of their career also.
FULL-TIME SENIOR FOOTBALL ENVIRONMENT
For many players the dream of playing full-time football in Europe is at the top of their agenda and our senior programs act as a perfect platform for players (18+) looking to showcase their abilities in the Spanish League system. With a full-time training schedule, accompanied by addition specialised training sessions including but not limited to: Video Analysis, Strength & Conditioning, Injury Prevention, Yoga, Spin sessions players expect to become fully immersed in the life of a professional during their time with us here at FCMC. Through this level and quality of training and games players will be given all of the tools that they need to be successful.
A STEP ON THE EUROPEAN LADDER
The FC Malaga City Senior team remains at the pinnacle of our club pyramid but is further supported by our U21 and U23 squads in our club structure. This provides players who have finished their youth career at the U19 level, the opportunity to compete within the competitive Spanish league structure - bridging the gap in a crucial part of a players development. Our mission is to provide with an unrivalled platform in order to further their personal development and also progress through the Spanish league system.

WORKING UP THE CLUB LADDER
Since the formation of our Academy, we have built a club structure that promotes a clear pathway for players to ascend through the Academy system. Our mission at this club to provide players, who maybe do not have access to the high level of coaching and professionalism in their own home countries, with an environment centred around their development. We are lucky to have seen a high number of quality players progress through our academy ranks starting at U16 right through to our senior teams. It is no coincidence that with each year brings with it a rise in the overall level as we look to close the gap on Spain's biggest clubs.
Elliot Simmons // Cavalry FC
Since 2013, FC Malaga City is proud to have worked with and developed a number of high level players that have made the jump to the professional level. The vast amount of success stories represents a tremendous amount of hard work from both players and staff alike, as we continue to create new exciting connections and opportunities for our players to take full advantage of.
For many of our new recruits we understand that making it to the next level is at the forefront of their decision and we explain to every player that this is by no means a guarantee. However for those players that are able to demonstrate the qualities and skill set needed to reach the next level then the opportunity will soon follow as seen by the players who have sinced moved on to professional clubs.
Our senior project allows people to gain invaluable experience competing at the Senior level, in an environment that promotes an attractive style of football and provides players with all of the tools that they need to be succesful.
