Marbella FC Secures Spot in Playoff for Promotion to 1st RFEF

Marbella FC secured a spot in the playoff for promotion to the 1st RFEF over the past weekend. This week, they have the opportunity to confirm a third-place finish with a draw, which would give them a slight advantage in the first playoff round and could also be crucial in the second. The range of potential opponents is still wide, with some historic clubs possibly standing in their way to promotion.

Marbella FC’s Victory Over Vélez

Last Sunday, Marbella FC accomplished their season’s goal by qualifying for the playoff for promotion to the 1st RFEF. Fran Beltrán’s team did so by authoritatively defeating Vélez, a team that had previously put up a good fight despite their institutional problems. This victory not only guarantees Marbella FC’s playoff spot but also assures them of at least a fourth-place finish and brings them very close to third place.

Advantages of Third Place Finish

A draw against Águilas, who are fighting for a spot in the Copa del Rey, would secure the third position for Marbella FC. The third-place finish would offer a small advantage to Marbella in the first playoff round, as the return match would be played at La Dama de Noche. In case of a draw after regular time and extra time, the better-ranked team would advance without a penalty shootout.

Potential Playoff Opponents

There are also several historic rivals fighting with Marbella FC for promotion and a step towards professional football in a high-level category like the 1st RFEF. If Marbella finishes third, their potential opponents in the first playoff round would be Guijuelo (G. I) and Utebo (G. II), who have already secured their fourth-place finishes. From group III, it could be one of Badalona, Lleida, and Sant Andreu; while from group V, the fourth place could still be for Getafe B, Sanse, Gimnástica Segoviana, and Atlético Paso.

Teams Already Promoted

As for the teams that have already been promoted, Ourense (G. I), Bilbao Athletic (G. II), and Sevilla Atlético (G. IV) have already secured their presence. Hércules or Europa are vying for direct promotion in group III, and Numancia, Gimnástica Segoviana, and Sanse are fighting for direct promotion in group V.
