Then why does nycfc get a da.? They have not been in existence that long. It is because they are a pro club. They will ignore requirement number 4 or any other one they want to. Just look at the girls side of us soccer das for proof of that.

-History of player production for youth National Teams, the Men's National Team, and professional leagues

-Market with player depth, geographic location, proximity to other elite clubs and travel implications

If you look at that 4th one, it seems impossible that a startup club could get DA after 5+ years of existence -- after one seems ridiculous.

The other Barca Academy bought their way in the DA by buying an existing DA club.

Please don't believe anyone that tries to lead you into believing this will be a DA club any time in the near future.

And more importantly, don't believe anyone that tells you that playing for a non-DA club is a bad thing.
They have plenty from number 4 except its with the Spanish National team
