Town Receive Family Excellence Award For 13th Year
Thursday, 10th Sep 2020 13:23
Town have received the EFL Family Excellence Award for the 13th consecutive season.
The EFL Family Excellence Award, which was instituted in 2007, rewards clubs for providing an outstanding experience for young fans and families, as well as efforts to enhance the matchday experience.
Town are one of only three clubs to have been awarded the title every year since its introduction.
The recipients are decided using independent assessments from families who made visits to all 72 League clubs on matchdays during the 2019/20 season. The Blues finished third in League One and 12th overall.
Town have introduced a number of initiatives to enhance the matchday experience for children and their families including the First Time Fans scheme and the Class of Blues programme, in addition to the FanZone, which has a range of activities for families.

Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
