Facilities at the Girondins Academy
Ample space and dedicated teams
Details of what life is like for our young apprentices.
A unique range of facilities on a 10-hectare site
The aim of the Academy is to provide the best possible conditions in which our young charges can thrive. In order to house up to 50 teenage players, the Girondins de Bordeaux opted to build a large centre where apprentices can live together while also enjoying a decent amount of personal space.
The Academy is in an exceptional location on the Plaine des Sports du Haillan, home of FC Girondins de Bordeaux. Apprentices are therefore in regular contact with the first-team squad.
