Blues come top of 72 clubs and join elite for Family Excellence Award as well

Town have come out on top amongst the 72 EFL clubs as having the ‘Best Family Zone in 2018/19’.

The Club launched the FanZone at the start of the 2016/17 season and it has proved a massive success with fans of all ages.

Some games have seen more than 4000 attend the FanZone before kick-off, while the FanZone received nationwide coverage last summer when 8000 watched England’s World Cup semi-final against Croatia on giant screens.   

The award was presented to Town officials at the annual Fan Engagement Seminar at Birmingham’s St. Andrew’s yesterday.

Town have also become one of only three clubs to have received the EFL Family Excellence Award every year for the last 12 seasons.

Created in 2007, the EFL Family Excellence Award recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families, as well as their efforts to enhance the matchday experience. 

The award recipients were decided using independent assessments from families, who make matchday visits across all 72 League clubs, during the 2018/19 season. 

Town were also nominated for ‘Best Retail Experience Award 2018/19’.
