The opening of St George's Park is truly a momentous occasion in the history of the FA.
Next year we will celebrate the FA's 150th anniversary, and this moment will be recorded as significant as any that has gone before us in the last 149 years.
We are particularly delighted that both the Duke and Duchess can join us to open this facility.
