Who is GFI Academy?

At Global Football Innovation Academy we're convinced that the game of life is won from the foundations. Those foundations that make solid, complete, and competitive players because we develop them comprehensively so that instead of aiming for the stars, they become one of them.

We believe that we can empower players to reach their full potential, both as players and people, by providing them with access to the best resources, facilities, experiences and support. We bring them to the next level thanks to our GFI Players Centric Methodology. A philosophy that involves fundamental values that define the way we build each player.

Our players improve and learn how to become a professional by training with top coaches with international experience and professional coaching licenses from UEFA and USSF.

Who is CF Fuenlabrada?

Club de Fútbol Fuenlabrada, S.A.D. is a football club based in Madrid, Spain. The club currently competes  in Primera División RFEF – Group 1,
the third tier of the Spanish league system. Founded in in 1975, the  club hosts home matches at the Estadio Fernando Torres. 

The origins of the creation of the Fuenlabrada Football Club date back to the year 1.975. At that time there were two emblematic and
representative clubs of the town, C.D. St Stephen and the Fuenlabrada Sports Group, which had been created shortly before. Both lived in harmony and were supported by the town hall on an equal basis. The idea arose from the then mayor of the town, Regino Beneítez, who suggested to
the directors of both clubs the merger to join forces, receive a greater municipal subsidy and create a single club, representative of a city that was already beginning to give symptoms of growth.
