Hyderabad FC is set to partner with Marbella FC for the next three years. As part of this deal, Hyderabad FC will be able to use the facilities and infrastructure of Marbella FC for conducting pre-season for first-team players.
The Andalusia-based club currently plays in the Segunda División B after narrowly missed out on promotion last season. Marbella FC has one of the finest infrastructure facilities in Spain.
The strategic alliance between the two clubs will focus on sporting and technical assistance that will help in improving the young Indian players. Both clubs will have options to signs players from each other.
Hyderabad FC Co-Owner Varun Tripuraneni said, “Marbella FC has one of the top infrastructure facilities in not just Spain, but entire Europe. This strategic tie-up allows us to explore a lot of opportunities that will help Hyderabad FC on the technical side of the game. For starters, the top young players in our first and reserve team will head to Marbella for an extended training period once travel opens up.”
Marbella FC General Manager Héctor Morales said, “This alliance with Hyderabad FC is a source of pride for Marbella FC. It will allow us to be in contact with one of the most important clubs from an emerging football market. We are convinced that this alliance will bring great benefits to both clubs. We are already working with Hyderabad FC to start this new adventure together as soon as possible.”
Earlier this year, Hyderabad FC also partnered in a multi-year deal with German giants Borussia Dortmund. The involvement of European clubs will be a big boost for Indian football, allowing young players to develop with assistance from some of the best clubs in Europe.
