Scunthorpe United is delighted to have been awarded Family Excellence status by the EFL for 2018.
This recognises continuous improvement in family engagement, and the club's efforts to attract and retain young fans of the future.
The Iron have received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback and reports determining whether we would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status.
The most recent survey showed that we provided the third best experience in League One, out of 24 clubs, and the 13th best in the whole of the EFL, out of 72 teams.
Chief Executive Officer James Rodwell said: “We pride ourselves on creating a family friendly environment here at Scunthorpe United. To receive another positive report from the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme, and figure so highly in the divisional table and overall EFL for these achievements is fantastic. The Chairman and Directors would like to place on record their gratitude to all our matchday staff for doing a great job."
EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, added: “It is hugely encouraging to see the continuous development and improvement made by 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."
