Manchester City Football Academy



Six extensive continuous runs of opal Marvault barrel vault polycarbonate rooflights were installed at the newly-built Manchester City Football Academy (CFA).
Rooflights were required for the building to bring natural light into indoor football pitches and Brett Martin Daylights Systems worked closely with the contractor to provide the optimum light transmission for the openings.

The City Football Academy is Manchester City’s youth development and first team Grade 1 Academy and Elite training centre. It is situated in the heart of Manchester adjacent to the Etihad Stadium and forms part of the wider Etihad Campus.

The academy features 16½ football pitches, a 7,000 capacity stadium and is home to all of Manchester City’s soccer teams of all age groups. Two thirds of the 16½ pitches on site are dedicated to youth development, supported by high quality coaching and education facilities, as well as medical and sports science services.

This building is a truly inspirational environment for young players to train and play.
