Guillermo Bermejo Jiménez (Logroño, 2000)
CEO and founder of ELXIIDEAL. Journalism graduated at the University of Málaga. A football and NBA fan, I have created this media with the ambition to obtain a spot among the media market. I have lived in the United States (Minnesota) and I love to travel and get to know different countries and cultures. Thanks to this project, I have fulfilled my goal of combining my vocation (journalism) and passion (sports). The quality of the content we release is our top priority.
José Manuel Calviño Merino (San Fernando, 2000)
I have been tied to sports since I was born. I discovered my vocation to communicate as years passed by. I have graduated from journalism at the University of Málaga and I plan on specializing into sports journalism through a master once I finish my degree. I like to inform, analyze and give my point of view. My favorite sport is football, but I also like the engine world, specially the F1 and motorcycles. Focusing on football, the competitions I follow are LaLiga, Premier League, Calcio, the second division in Spain, and the European tournaments (Champions and Europa League). I am a truly supporter of top class midfielders.
Carlos Gil (Málaga, 2000)
I studied Journalism at the University of Málaga. I have multiple interests, but I have always focused on the reasons of the things. Analysis is the area I like the most from sports journalism, but I also pay attention to both information and opinion. I mostly follow Spanish and English football as well as the NBA.
Santiago Padilla (Vélez-Málaga, 2000)
My first memory from a football stadium was watching the Málaga vs Sporting game at La Rosaleda. On that day, apart from witnessing a home win thanks to a header by someone called “Lolo”, I also found out what I wanted to become. I believe in vocational journalism (sports journalism in my case), and even though football will always be the main sport for me, I also consider myself a basketball and tennis fan among other sports. Yes indeed, I find cycling a little bit boring.
Francisco Butrón (Algeciras, 2000)
Graduated in Journalism by the University of Málaga. I have been a football fan since I was a kid, but now I prefer to watch it rather than playing it, as some of us are too old for that anymore. I have passion for the team of my hometown, Algeciras CF and I am specialized in modest football: “I rather cry for my hometown than for a team that is 500 kilometers away from me. I am also a little nerd of the Japanese culture.
Manuel Aguayo Aguilar (Sevilla, 2000)
Graduated in Journalism by the University of Málaga. I had clear since I was a kid that my vocation was journalism. I love sports, I also follow the NBA, specially the Houston Rockets, the team I support. Apart from ELXIIDEAL, I also collaborate at Grada3, where I cover news and write match recaps about Málaga CF games.
Marta de Jesús Calle Gálvez (Marbella, 2000)
Recently graduated in Journalism from the University of Málaga, which is the career that has allowed me to realize how much I like to tell stories. Writing is one of my passions, but I also love to edit videos, audios and photos. Football has been part of my life since I was a kid, as I have always followed closely LaLiga Santander and the European competitions, specially the Champions League, just as the national teams tournaments where Spain takes part in, as I am specialized on that.
Mercedes Bryan Rodríguez (Málaga, 1998)

With a foot in Málaga and the other one abroad: I have spent time in Cambridge, Toronto, Ottawa, Cincinnati… Linked to the sports industry since I can remember it, as I used to go to the Masters 1000 and tennis Challenger along with my father.
