ONE TEAM ONE DREAM
EMZEE FOOTBALL CLUB is a non-profit youth soccer club officially recognized by PEJABAT PESURUHJAYA SUKAN MALAYSIA (Malaysia National Sports Council) on 28th July 2017 with registration number 8955/2017. The club was founded to give players access to progressive playing philosophies and advanced levels of coaching. Our focus on quality over quantity is to help players succeed in a competitive but ultimately fun learning environment, focusing on individual athletes rather than team results.
The mission of EFC (EMZEE FOOTBALL CLUB) is to provide all soccer players aged 10 to 24 with the opportunity to learn, develop high levels of physical and technical ability and compete at the highest level in an environment that balances fun with a work ethic that encourages players to do their best.
The vision of EFC (EMZEE FOOTBALL CLUB) is to have the best football academy in Malaysia recognized for excellence in player and coach development programs, sportsmanship and competition for players of all genders, abilities and ages.
We take a 'player-centric' approach, providing more individualized expert coaching and guidance, allowing each player to learn and grow at their own pace over the long term. We want our players to be entertained as individuals, we want to entertain parents and coaches through games, and we want to entertain our opponents too! Win or lose, it's no coincidence that we still receive comments from opposing coaches and parents praising our team's performance. "Winning football doesn't always mean entertaining football, and entertaining doesn't always mean winning football."
Our style of play
Our style of play – a result of the freedom that allows individuals and teams to train and be creative as a group – is highly attacking and possession oriented. We play fast transition football where the goalkeeper plays from behind being the twelfth (12) player on the field.
EMZEE FOOTBALL CLUB is proud to be the only International Club Partner of the Celtic Soccer Academy in Southeast Asia. An agreement that runs until 2025. As a club partner of Europe's top youth soccer academies, young footballers aged 8-24 who residing in Malaysia will have the opportunity to learn and develop their football skills and train "The Celtic Way". https://www.celticfc.com/celtic-soccer-academy/partners
