St George's Park boasts 11 outdoor pitches including an exact replica of the playing surface at Wembley Stadium, an altitude chamber to replicate playing in different climates and a 60-meter sprint track aimed at monitoring running speed and style.
Apart from state-of-the-art facilities, what will a centralized hub offer English football which is does not have already?
"The FA's locations have always been disconnected from the realities of grassroots football," explains Pavl Williams, editor of thecoachingmanual.com.
"They now have a location which is central to the rest of the country and accessible to a broader range of society.
"It's also a central location where lots of organizations are working together, which is necessary if you are going to pull out a consistent philosophy at every level of the game, which is what we are trying to do."
Tuesday's opening marks the end of a lengthy process for English football. A national soccer hub was first mooted back in the late 90s.
Many observers have highlighted the lack of a core philosophy and antiquated coaching methods as a reason for England stagnating while more technically-gifted teams like Spain have flourished.
"The way football is going to progress in the country is through working together," continued Williams. "We need to create something which is bigger than the sum of its parts.
"St. George's Park can bring in more agencies which work really well together and get that out to coaches working at a grassroots level."
One of the key areas St. George's Park will look to address is the coaching which is given to promising English talent.
Williams outlined a lack a UEFA A Licensed coaches at grassroots level as a key difference between England and continental Europe, as well as suggesting over coaching can cause some youngsters to burn out.
"A lot of kid's coaching is hands off coaching," said Williams. "The more you educate a coach, the more they learn when to not step in and coach.
"Facilities, like the pitches you play on, are a big issue for technical players. But in coaching specifically, kids in other countries are allowed to express themselves more."
