Rovers come top three in EFL Family Excellence

17 May 2022

Rovers have been recognised as one of the top three club's in the EFL for Family Excellence.

Rovers were also shortlisted for having the best mascot in the EFL. 

A total of 65 EFL clubs have achieved Family Excellence status for the 2021/22 season, 12 of which have been crowned as ‘Gold Award’ winners for their exemplary work in engaging families on matchdays.

Rovers were one of the clubs recognised for this alongside Blackburn Rovers, Exeter City, Fulham, Hull City, Luton Town, Mansfield Town, Middlesbrough, Scunthorpe United, Sheffield United, Stoke City, and Swindon Town.

The scheme sees each EFL club receive two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback and reports determining whether each respective club would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status.

EFL chief executive Trevor Birch said: “I would like to congratulate the record number of clubs that have achieved Family Excellence status this season.

"Ensuring a memorable matchday experience is vital to attract the next generation of young fans, so it’s great to see so many clubs excelling in this area.

“Fans returning to EFL clubs in their millions this season has been fantastic to see and club staff should be commended for going the extra mile to make the matchdays engaging for families attending live games.”
