LaLiga Launches Its First Academy In China

May 28, 2019

Chinese football is embarking on an ambitious footballing journey as interest in the sport continues to build. Through ongoing investment in its national football league and a commitment to youth development, the Asian market aspires to be one of football’s great powers in years to come.

As an active partner of Chinese football for several years, LaLiga is committed to sharing resources and best practice that will help strengthen football in both countries. The opening of the Spanish league’s first permanent academy in China is evidence of this growing relationship.

The new facilities, located in Anning in the southwest city of Kunming, represent LaLiga’s commitment to building a long-term football culture in China. Expected to start operations in the second half of 2021, it will be made up of schools, sports training camps, a specialised medical centre and a football museum.
