On the 12th and 13th of November, ECA is co-organising a Conference on Youth Football together with the EPFL, at the City Football Academy in Manchester.
Focused on youth player migrations and on the licensing of the Youth Academies, the first afternoon session of this two-day event will notably see the presentation of Manchester City's academy, together with the interventions of experts from the CIES Football Observatory, the Premier League and the DFL Deutsche Fussball Liga. The second day will see a number of club-focused break-out sessions taking place, where two club representatives will have the chance to share their knowledge and expertise in each of the sessions. A final discussion on the future of youth football in Europe will close the event.
