Malaga Club de Futbol (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmalaɣa ˈkluβ ðe ˈfuðβol], Malaga Football Club), or simply Malaga, is a Spanish football team based in Malaga, Andalusia, Spain. The team plays in the Segunda Division, the second division of Spanish football.
They won the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2002 and qualified for the following season's UEFA Cup, reaching the quarter-final stages. They also qualified for the 2012–13 UEFA Champions League, where they were quarter-finalists. Since June 2010, the owner of the club has been Qatari investor Abdullah ben Nasser Al Thani.
The first football club in Malaga was established in 1904, with the formation of the Malaga Foot-Ball Club. It was nothing more than a society intended to promote football, a new sport in the city, carried from the United Kingdom. Its first rivals were small teams formed by crews of foreign ships arriving in the local harbor. In 1907, further attempts of popularizing football were performed by the Malaga FC.
