HistoryEdit

Middelfart Gymnastik & Idræts Klub (MG&IK) was founded on 25 May 1900 and shortly after the end of World War II it merged with the its local neighbours from Middelfart Boldklub.[1] Since 2015, the football department of Middelfart G&BK has been organised under the name Middelfart Boldklub ApS with the aim of transitioning into a professional football club,[1] whereas the amateur section has continued under the name Middelfart G&BK.[2] Middelfart Boldklub therefore has the license to the divisional team (third highest level of Danish football) and leases the Middelfart G&BK facility. Thereby, Middelfart Boldklub also has access to the pitches and clubhouse and uses the stadium, Middelfart Stadion at Adlerhusvej, where there are also changing rooms and public facilities.

On 21 November 2015, Middelfart Boldklub signed its first professional player, Oluwafemi Ajilore after the Danish Football Union (DBU) has approved the club as an Anpartsselskab ("private company limited by shares").[3]

Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Falk are both former Middelfart G&BK players.
