The Premier League Under 21 fixtures have now been released for our Elite Development Squad, and we begin the new 2015-16 season as we ended the last one.

Having closed down the Under 21 2014-15 campaign with a game against Southampton, that’s exactly how we open the new year under Patrick Vieira.

Matches tagged as home (H) will take place at either the Etihad Stadium – I believe three are set for there – and the remainder will take place at the City Football Academy.

Prior to the campaign kicking off though, the EDS and Under 18 squads are heading to Spain on Sunday July 12 for pre season preparations.

It will be a ten day camp near Murcia and it’s a move we have made for the development squads for the last two years that has seemed to bear fruit.

There will be a mix of inter squad games, as well as the U18s having friendlies lined up against Real Murcia on July 18 and Elche on July 21. The U21s face Elche also on the same date.
