Football Development Schools European Tours

Each season the FDS-West Bromwich Albion Shadow Squad and Development Centre players travel to play in several tournaments around Europe. These tours contribute massively to the learning culture within the Academy and benefit the players with life skills off the pitch as well as massively helping game and tournament understanding on the pitch. Over the years we have developed excellent relationships with different tournaments in many different countries and this is an area we look to build on each season.
