Blues handed Football League Family Excellence recognition for eighth successive season

Town have been awarded the Football League Family Excellence award for the eighth successive year. 

Created in 2007, the award recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families as part of a scheme that won the Gold Award at the European Professional Football Leagues’ Best Practice Awards.

A total of 42 clubs from across all three divisions of The Football League have achieved the award for 2015, with Doncaster, Huddersfield, Milton Keynes Dons, Shrewsbury and Tranmere joining Town in being acknowledged for the eighth time on the trot. 

In announcing the successful clubs, Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey, said: “The Football League Family Excellence Award gives clubs a standard to aspire to when planning their efforts to attract more families and young fans to their matches.

“It is hugely encouraging to see so many clubs receiving the accolade, demonstrating The Football League’s ongoing commitment to securing the next generation of fans.”
