    FA Chair David Bernstein described the opening of the new £105M ($168M) St. George's Park National Football Centre Tuesday as a "historic" day for the English game, according to Phil McNulty of the BBC. The new complex in Staffordshire will house all 24 England teams, from junior to senior levels. Bernstein said, "We have to get more players through who can be full England internationals and this is where it will happen. So much work has gone into this for so long and to see it now is fantastic." The 330-acre site was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, "who were given a tour of the park." FA President Prince William said, "It gives me great pride we have created in this country facilities that are beyond compare anywhere else."
