The City Football Academy(CFA) is the City Football youth development and first team training centre built on a regenerated 80 acre former brownfield site in East Manchester.
The CFA is home to all of Manchester City’s football teams of both genders and all age groups. Two thirds of the 16.5 pitches on site are dedicated to the youth talent and the wider development of the young players is supported by tailored coaching and education facilities, medical and sports science services, sleeping accommodation and parents’ facilities.
