Robins awarded Family Excellence Award
Cheltenham Town has been awarded the EFL Family Excellence Award for 2016-17.
The Awards scheme recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families, as well as their efforts to enhance the matchday experience, and is given to Clubs following two separate genuine family visits to the stadium as home supporters.
As a genuine visit from a real family whose children are coming to live football for the first time, it represents the ultimate family accolade.
Over the past 10 years, more and more young people have made their way through the turnstiles in the EFL, with junior season ticket sales having increased by a staggering 37% since 2007, and 20% of all EFL club match attendees now under the age of 16.
The Family Excellence Awards scheme rewards those clubs whose ‘family experiences’ demonstrate not only are aware of the needs of our ‘fans of the future’ but that they can also ‘deliver’ when it comes to the match day itself.
• Over 2,300 tickets have been sold for tomorrow's crunch match against Hartlepool United at the LCI Rail Stadium (3pm kick-off). Admission to all home areas has been reduced to £12, and tickets are selling at three times the normal rate. There are a few seats left but you won't be able to pay for these at ticket office only (not turnstiles). There are plenty of terracing tickets available on the day.
