How will English football develop?



National Football Centre
While some parts of the original NFC plans are unlikely to get beyond the model stage, the 12 pitches are almost finished.

Their construction - to the highest specifications - was almost completed prior to the 2004 decision to halt work. It is estimated that the FA has already spent more than 20m at Burton.

Two of the centre's pitches will have similar synthetic surfaces to the one England lost 2-1 to Russia on in October.

While the "elite" grass pitch is made to the same dimensions as Wembley's playing surface.
