Yeah I gotta get flights, hotels, food etc (expenses etc) sorted then be able to work with selected players. I am happy to tie in with local academies. But cannot make announcements about that until I get the backing to do it in the first place.
The idea is ongoing.... if there's only enough funds to cover a week then it will be a week. If it's more funding then series of weeks can be introduced. A larger amount makes for an ongoing and developing academy... so it really is a flexible concept to fit around many aspects.
