The Football League Youth Alliance (known sometimes as the Puma Youth Alliance after its sponsors, Puma) is the third tier of youth football competition in England, beneath the Professional Development League (until 2012 known as FA Premier Academy League). It was founded in 1997 at the same time as the expansion of the Premier Academy League (which is for clubs with Academy status), and is contested between Football League member clubs with Centre of Excellence status.
