UPL is the second in Europe by number of home-grown players in clubs

The Football Observatory, a well-known research group from Switzerland that deals with different types of game analysis, published an interesting ranking that shows how clubs from the elite divisions of Europe trust the home-grown players.

By the end of October it became clear that teams of the Ukrainian Premier League are 30.6% staffed by young (under 22 years old) players, brought up the clubs schools. For this indicator Ukraine got ahead of only Slovakian Fortuna Liga (on the last position in the Football Observatory list is Turkish Sporttoto SuperLiga).

It should be remembered that in the official UEFA rankings the championship of Ukraine is on the eighth place now. This means that the Ukrainian Liga Parimatch (the official name of the top division championship) is not just one of the strongest in the world according to sport indicators, but it also shows good results in youth football development.

Confirmation of this can also be found in the annual Report on youth academies in Europe, issued by the European Club Association, where (on page 86) one of the highest ratings were given to the Academy of FC Shakhtar Donetsk.
