ASTON VILLA FC - BODYMOOR HEATH
Bodymoor Heath Training Ground is Aston Villa Football Club's training ground, located at Bodymoor Heath in the district of Warwickshire, England. The site was purchased from a farmer by then Aston Villa Chairman Doug Ellis in the early 1970s. The ground is situated a short distance from Drayton Manor Theme Park and The Belfry Golf Club, just a few hundred metres from the M42 link to Birmingham.
Bodymoor Heath is currently being renovated to house a brand new state of the art training facility for the academy. The facilities at Bodymoor Heath are used as the home ground for the 1st team and the majority of the academy teams and will be considered one of the best facilities the UK professional game has to offer.
WOLVES FC - SIR JACK HAYWARD AT COMPTON PARK
The Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground is the 1st team training ground and academy base. It is located in the Compton area of Wolverhampton.
The training ground stands approximately one mile to the west of the club's home stadium Molineux, and features five high-quality under-soil heated training pitches, eleven changing rooms, a fully equipped gymnasium, and a hydrotherapy pool – one of only a handful of English clubs to own such equipment. The training ground's medical and physiotherapy facilities made it the first British sports club to establish a fully accredited professional sports laboratory, based on AC Milan's Milanello model. The development opened in November 2005 at a cost £4.6 million and is named in honour of the club's Life President and former owner Sir Jack Hayward.
In July 2011, plans were announced for a £50 Million redevelopment of the Compton Park area where the training ground is currently located that has enabled Wolves to build a new indoor pitch and improve facilities to create a 'Category 1' Premier League football academy.
DERBY COUNTY FC - MOOR FARM
Derby County's academy, called Moor Farm, is a purpose-built complex situated near the city suburb of Oakwood. It was built in 2003, at a cost of £5 million to replace the club's previous academy, The Ram-Arena, which was based at Raynesway. It covers over 50 acres and features six full-sized training pitches plus an indoor pitch and includes a gym, restaurant, ProZone room and a laundry. With many academy graduates progressing through to the 1st team, this helped strengthen the academy's reputation and reinforced CEO Tom Glick's stated desire to make Moor Farm "the academy of choice in the Midlands." In August 2012, Derby's academy became a Category 2 academy under the new Elite Player Performance Plan. It was awarded Category 1 status two years later in July 2014 and has continued to go from strength to strength and is recognised as one of the top UK club academies.
BLACKBURN ROVERS FC - BROCKHALL VILLAGE
Blackburn Rovers’ Senior Training Centre is located at Brockhall Village, a gated community in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, and is also home to the Blackburn Rovers academy, a Category One standard facility. A state-of-the-art complex, which was largely funded in the era of Jack Walker back in 1994, Brockhall became one of the first purpose built 21st century training complexes.
The facility was thought to have cost in the region of £4.75million to construct and holds a capacity of 1,000 spectators over a range of grass and an indoor 3G pitches – while also boasting a gym, canteen, swimming pool and classrooms for video analysis - the Brockhall training centre is a hub of quality suitable for a Premier League club.
It is also worth noting that the community at Brockhall has accommodation for the Development Squad players to live in after leaving Secondary School in order to be close to the facility and maximise their training time.
