NEWS | Glovers retain EFL Family Excellence status

Accolade awarded for 2017/18 season

1 May 2018

Yeovil Town has been awarded with Family Excellence Status for a successive season, joining a record number of 56 EFL Clubs in achieving the accolade.

For the first time, 10 clubs have also been crowned as ‘Gold Award’ winners for their exemplary work in engaging families on matchdays.

The record breaking number, up from 53 Clubs in 2016/17, recognises continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement across the leagues and supports Clubs’ efforts to attract and retain young fans of the future.

EFL Clubs received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback and reports determining whether each respective Club would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status.

Now in its 11th year, the Family Excellence Scheme is an ongoing consultation programme which aims to drive continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement across the leagues and support clubs’ efforts to attract and retain young fans of the future.

New for this season, 10 clubs have achieved ‘Gold Award’ status for outstanding family engagement across the assessment visits.
