England’s plan to win its first soccer title since the 1966 World Cup is focused as much on developing coaches as players at its new 100 million pound ($158 million) facility.

Work is nearing completion on St. George’s Park, the Football Association’s National Football Centre 126 miles northwest of London. The center is expected to open by September and will be a training base for national teams and an education facility whose main aim is to produce more top level coaches. (Source: Bloomberg)
