Pompey Achieve Family Excellence Status

Blues recognised for their family engagement on matchdays

26 April 2018

Pompey are one of 56 EFL clubs to have achieved Family Excellence status.

The record-breaking number – up from 53 in 2016/17 – recognises continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement.

It also supports the efforts of EFL clubs to attract and retain young supporters of the future.

Sides received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback determining whether each club 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 matchday 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. Congratulations to the clubs that have achieved Family Excellence status."
