Manchester City, training facility
Manchester City Football Club’s commitment to competitive success and to its community are manifested in a state-of-the-art facility that serves the physical and intellectual development of elite professional athletes, the world’s most promising young prospects, and the local youth who study at the schools included in the complex of buildings and fields.
Designed by Rafael Viñoly architects, the Manchester City’s Football Academy is located immediately adjacent to Etihad Stadium, the Club Headquarters. The 40,000 square foot building houses over 200 club employees and media facilities that include a 120-seat press conference auditorium, with a glazed wall overlooking the stadium pitch. The 7,000 seat stadium is designed to mirror the layout of Etihad Stadium and provides covered seating on four sides to ensure a “match-day” type experience for youth players.
