Lyon, 12 June 2018
The French Football Federation has published its annual ranking of the best professional football academies in France. The OL Academy ranked number one for the sixth consecutive year, ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco.
This ranking was drawn up by the Federation's national technical training department and validated by the French Football Collective Bargaining Agreement Commission. It was based on several criteria of effectiveness, such as the number of professional contracts signed by players trained at the club, the number of matches played on a first team by players trained at the club, the number of matches played on a national team by players trained at the club, the academic performance of players trained at the club and educators' seniority.
This award validates the excellent work performed by the OL Academy's trainers and educators and confirms once again that the OL Academy is the country's benchmark in the training of young footballers, both male and female.
