According to a FIFA study, there are currently 30 million female football players worldwide, a figure that is expected to double by 2026. Two days ago, Megan Rapinoe won the Golden Ball in Paris alongside Leo Messi (MICPlayer, by the way). The American is one of the great examples that girls no longer must focus just on male idols when they dream of reaching the top of the game. And MICFootball wants to be their springboard.     We have been accompanying young stars from all over the world for 20 years. In almost every edition of our tournament there has been a space for...

The 1st edition of MIC USA, jointly organized by MICSports and ISL, has finished in Miami after a few days in which we have enjoyed the passion they feel on the other side of the Atlantic for the king of sports. In the 3 categories of our sister tournament we have seen the same illusion that we see every year in the Costa Brava. Who said that in the United States was no interest in football?      In this first edition of the competition held in Fort Lauderdale (Florida) have participated 48 teams, divided into 3 categories (U12, U14 and U16). The American kids have...

In 20 years of history, we've experienced a lot. Looking back, one of the things we're most excited about is how women's football has evolved around the world, both professionally and at youth level.

On Monday took place in Milan the “The Best” award gala where two MICPlayers were the stars. Leo Messi won the main award while Alisson Becker was recognized as the best goalkeeper last season. For Messi, going to collect prizes is something usual. Considered by many as the greatest of all time, the Rosario player adds "The Best" to his collection of awards in a glorious career, which took its first steps on the Costa Brava.  The Argentine star participated in the MICFootball 2003 with the U16 team of FC Barcelona, in which were also Gerard Piqué and Cesc Fabregas. For Alisson...

Since 2001, when the first edition of MIC (Mundialito Islas Canarias back then) was held, the tournament has changed a lot. The number of teams, players and media attention that the Mediterranean International Cup has today has nothing to do with what happened at that time. It all started with 5 categories and 128 teams. Already then it was a tournament of considerable size compared to other youth football championships that were held. From the beginning it was created with one objective: to offer the best possible organization so that the participants live an unforgettable experience. After celebrating the first edition...
