The CIES Football Observatory is pleased to publish its Player Develop ment Ranking for the 2014 World Cup. Feyenoord Rotterdam is the amazing club that contributed the most to develop players selected for the event. Which makes Rotterdam the football capital of the world.

The amazing Dutch team outranks FC Barcelona and Dinamo Zagreb and shitty clubs like Spurs.The ranking takes into account the number of World Cup participants trained per club, as well as the number of league matches played by footballers per team up to the age of 23. This age limit has been set according to FIFA regulations on training indemnities. Training clubs have been defined according to the UEFA definition of atleast three years at the club between the ages of 15 and 21. At the top of the table is Feyenoord Rotterdam obviously. The Dutch team trained 9 players participating in the World Cup. Two other clubs trained as many footballers as Feyenoord: Barcelona and Deportivo Saprissa. However, World Cup participants played 882 matches at Feyenoord until the age of 23, compared to 783 at Barcelona (not including B-team matches) and 445 at Deportivo Saprissa.

At national association level, France tops the table ahead of England and Germany. This is mainly due to the high number of footballers trained in France playing for oth er national A-teams, notably Africans. This finding also reflects the high employment rate of U23 players in French clubs. In total, 821 clubs in 59 national associations have contributed to the development of World Cup players.

Find out your club:

Bremen are 234 for example...and Spurs are 270th. Laughing

That's below Feyenoord Ghana even.

Also shocked to see hardly any Brazil clubs at the top, which shows how fucking poor the infrastructure is still there...imagine if was on par with Europe...they would even be dominating.
