Owls achieve EFL Family Excellence Award for 2017/18

The Owls are one of 56 EFL clubs to achieve Family Excellence status for 2018, cementing our commitment to the younger generation of the present and future.

The Family Excellence award 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.

All EFL clubs received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback and reports determining who would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status.

EFL Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said: “It is hugely encouraging to see the continuous development and improvement made by EFL clubs in offering engaging matchday experiences for families.

“For over a decade the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme has helped to produce positive and impactful change across the leagues, helping to drive a real focus on match day entertainment, facilities and the overall experience on offer for families, and ultimately to assist in growing attendances.

“Its impact continues to be notable with several clubs gaining strong industry-wide reputations for offering true family value and a consistently high level of service and innovation.

“The EFL will continue to work with clubs to help drive change and support the continued effort to attract and retain future generations of supporters.”
