The week will see the launch of City's Football Development Programme Under-23s Elite Development Squad degree course. 

Run by the club's Community Foundation, the programme is open to both boys and girls who have a BTEC Level 3 in Sport or equivalent qualification.

While only individuals under the age of 23 are eligible to compete within the football side, participants of any age and level of experience can apply for the academic aspect of the course. 

The squad is the latest of a number of recent developments and signs of growth within the Football Development Programme - which has seen three of its players recently selected to train with the club's academy. 

Adam Fox, head of the Football Development Programme, said: "Adding the under-23s EDS gives us the ability to offer a strong football programme now from under-15s to under-23s, with players from under-17 to under-23 level also receiving an excellent education.
"Through our partners at Loughborough, the University of South Wales and University Centre, Leeds, we have different types of degree available - depending on what the player would like to do in terms of employment.
"Having established PE, sports science, injury and rehab, analysis and media departments along with football groups from ages under-9 to under-23 - with boys and girls and Bradford City FITC Girls included - we can help any player with any type of work experience."
