We want to secure our future as one of the world’s leading football clubs and build on Manchester’s reputation as a centre of football excellence by investing in the development of young talent in the heart of our community.
To this end, Manchester City Football Club is developing a new youth development and first-team training centre in East Manchester, adjacent to the Etihad Stadium.
As a world leading centre of excellence, it will be an inspirational facility for young players and a transformative investment in East Manchester, consistent with Manchester City Council’s vision for the area.
To create a world-class Academy, we need to spend more time with our young players providing coaching and developing their skills. This means providing not only high-quality playing and training facilities, but also on-site education facilities so that they can hone their technique while receiving a high-quality education.
