In this photo taken Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014, players go through their paces at Freiburg’s football academy in Freiburg, Germany. As one of the Bundesliga’s most financially disadvantaged teams, Freiburg deploys an array of coping strategies to stay in Germany’s top division and remain competitive against rival clubs that have richer resources, revenues and budgets. Because Freiburg cannot afford to buy many players, it “builds” them instead, plowing about 6 million euros (US$7.5 million) per year - roughly 10 percent of its annual revenues - into its academy.
