I'm a Yankees fan. They train each spring training at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida:

Can't think of a football club the way you think of U.S. sports franchises where there is 1 team. Think of it more of a Major League Baseball club(all of its minor league franchises). Then you get these places like this that are usually dual team facilities. Each team and their minor squads get about 6 fields and the teams share the stadium. Football and basketball simply don't use a minor league system.

Champion Stadium at Disney/ESPN's Wide World of Sports (Atlanta Braves)





Flowery Branch, GA - Atlanta Falcons

Best I can find is the google maps view of it. 3 outdoor fields, and an indoor facility.

These MLB ones all seem to be Spring training camps. Where do the teams actually train during the season, their home field?

They don't really practice during the season. They play games every day so there isn't much time for practice. They get batting practice on the field before games, but that's more of a warm up than anything else. If they want to get practice in then they get to the stadium early and go take ground ball or fly balls or throw or head to the batting cages under the stadium.

I think real madrid and shakhtar are also excellent.

Parma's training ground in nearby Collecchio:

Entrance with grass-covered reception/changing room/press building:
[IMG]http://i48.************/oj1laa.png[/IMG]

Aerial view with blue dot at the entrance: http://www.bing.com/maps/?mm_embed=m...22925218939935

Six full-size pitches, a blue all-weather pitch and an oval running track for warm-ups. (Well, it would be oval if a corner wasn't cut off by farming land!) The SW pitch of the 4 that are together in a rectangle is where the reserves play and the first team play most friendlies; it has a 1,200-seat capacity.

€6.5M plans will be effected to move club offices from the stadium in Parma to the training ground:

[IMG]http://i49.************/21mgqyv.png[/IMG]

Not sure of its exact location in the plot, but perhaps that westerly patch of grass. I don't quite get why it's so expensive though...

Anyway, not the most impressive, but it's ours!

I'm a sucker for a good rehabilitation / reconversion, but what Lille did exceds any expectations. Brilliant stuff.

FC Schalke 04 will extend the club's training ground (5 regular pitches / 1small pitch) in the following years. The old abandoned Schalke stadium will be converted into 3 pitches plus a small stadium for 8,000 ppl.

Worth posting an update on Tottenham Hotspur's new training facility

A reminder of the specs:
  • 11 outdoor pitches - one artificial pitch and ten natural grass. Only one of the grass pitches has the potential to be floodlit, while the artificial pitch will be lit at night, only until 8.30pm. The main pitch to the professional squad area will be designed to the same quality and design as the pitch proposed for the New Spurs Stadium; complete with undersoil heating.
  • A two storey training centre, which also has a basement, which has been designed by architects KSS to be an integral part of the landscape. The building has been designed around a 70 x 50m indoor artificial pitch which features a transparent ETFE roof similar to the EDEN project in Cornwall.
  • The building also incorporates a learning centre for the Academy and educational space, medical facilities, a hydrotherapy / swimming pool, fitness centre/gym, changing rooms, a canteen and media centre.
  • Two further small buildings; a security building near the Whitewebbs Lane entrance and another small, single storey groundsman's lodge in the far south west corner, for storage of pitch maintenance equipment and changing rooms for grounds staff.
  • Parking for 98 cars, five coaches and a number of cycle spaces.

Spurs are moving into the new training centre this Summer. However, the website takes months to update, so we've only got photos from March:
