The Football Association (FA) board has approved plans for the new National Football Centre in Burton upon Trent in England.

The board has also agreed to provide £105m ($168m) towards the development.

Work on the much delayed project will begin in January next year and will be complete in 2012. The FA bought the land for the project in 2001.

A hotel and housing complex is planned alongside the development which FA plans to use as a coach education centre, according to BBC News.
