Football Today

Jul 20, 2020

Earlier this month, after years of hard work and preparation the academies of Burnley, Leeds and Crystal Palace were upgraded to Category One status. It is evidence of a larger trend of clubs investing more heavily in their academies and renovating their training grounds.

Today, we explain why Premier League clubs are increasing their spending on their academies and what it might mean for the future of British football. 


Matt Woosnam (@MattWoosie) covers Crystal Palace for The Athletic.
