Promising and talented young football players are among the brightest actors in football. Accordingly, the International Center for Sports Research (CIES) recently published the results of a remarkable study. The center has listed the clubs that have spent the most time with under-20 players globally over the past 5 football seasons. The study, between April 1, 2018 and March 2023, determined how many chances a total of 1,168 football clubs around the world gave footballers under 20 years of age and how much time young footballers took to their teams. According to this, the Danish representative of Nordsjaelland is the football club that devotes the most time to young talents. The Turkish team that devotes the most time to young football players is Altınordu FK, one of the TFF 2nd League teams. Let’s look at the details together.

The study examined matches played by 1,168 football clubs around the world between April 1, 2018 and March 2023 in local leagues.
According to the study, the Danish representative of Nordsälland is the most courageous team when it comes to young players.
