St George's Park & The PFA
St George’s Park
St George’s Park aims to be a “university of football” enabling coaches to continuously train and develop in order to progress along the coaching pathway. The future development of football in this country is reliant on better coaches. At all levels of the game we need coaches who possess the expertise, knowledge and attitude to positively affect the players and teams with which they work.
“The PFA is delighted to be part of this exciting initiative at St. George’s Park, which we hope will produce better coaches, managers and players, and ultimately take the English game back to the cutting edge of world football.”
