Port Vale FC earns Silver Award as record number of EFL clubs achieve Family Excellence status

23 May 2024

Port Vale FC has been awarded with a Family Excellence Silver Award for the 2023/24 season, and joins a record number of 68 EFL Clubs in achieving recognition.

For the first time this season, Clubs were rewarded with either Gold, Silver or Bronze status based on the experience they provide to assessing families, and testament to the success of the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme, over one million junior supporters enjoyed a live matchday experience at an EFL game in the Sky Bet Championship, League One or League Two in 2023/24.

The EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme assesses the experience Clubs provide for match-going families through the use of family matchday assessors, covering a range of touchpoints across ticket purchase, matchday activations and experience, accessibility, facilities and family communications. This scheme recognises the continuous improvement and best practice that emerges across the League and rewards Clubs for their efforts in attracting and retaining young supporters.

EFL Chief Executive, Trevor Birch said:

“Attendances across the EFL are at a modern day high and it’s really encouraging to see more than one million junior supporters attend an EFL match for the third season in a row, highlighting the great work being done by EFL Clubs to encourage young people through the turnstiles.”
