Aloha College Football Club (ACFC)

The club was established in 2011 with 60 very enthusiastic team members, of whom many had never played football before. Shortly afterwards we entered the local Marbella League consisting of schools and football clubs from Marbella.

Peques (under 7), Estrellitas (under 8), Benjamines (under 10), Alevines (under 12), most players had never before played in a league. We enjoyed every training session and every match, even though we found it very difficult at first playing league matches.


Currently we have 130 players and 10 football teams, with a new state-of-the-art Astroturf football pitch and excellent floodlights. We also have new changing rooms, which were opened during 2017/2018 season. Our football stadium is, without a doubt, the best in Marbella for junior football. All our opponents look forward to playing at Aloha College.

It has a large banked seated area which runs the full length along one side of the pitch, plus an astounding view of the La Concha mountain. It is an incredible place to train and play football matches.

How Aloha Football Club have innovated and advanced junior football in Marbella

The local Marbella League had no Infantil (under 14) or Cadete (under 16) categories.
So Aloha College Football Club created and managed an Infantil League, which was so successful that the Marbella league adopted it so it continues to be part of the league structure.
Aloha College Football Club then created and managed a Cadete league. We will be managing the league this coming season for the 3rd year in succession.

Aloha College Football Girls

We now have a new project for girls.
Girls have been and always will be important to us, and they are encouraged and welcome to play for any Aloha College Football Club category and this will continue forever.
There is also an additional girls only group. The first season was training only with occasional matches. This season we hope to play regular friendly matches.
