Blues among this year's recipients

Pompey are among the winners of the Football League Family Excellence Award for 2014.

Created in 2007, it recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families.

A total of 47 clubs from across all three divisions of the Football League have been given the award for 2014 – the same number as the previous year, despite a significant increase in the benchmark standard being applied by the judging panel.

Shaun Harvey, Football League chief executive, said: “The Family Excellence Award gives clubs a standard to aspire to when planning their efforts to attract more families and young fans to their matches.

“It is hugely encouraging to see so many clubs receiving the accolade, demonstrating the Football League’s ongoing commitment to securing the next generation of fans.”

The award recipients are decided by an independent assessment using real families that has been commissioned by the Football League, at all 72 clubs, during the 2013/14 season.
