Robins achieve Family Excellence status for 22/23

18 May 2023

Cheltenham Town have achieved Family Excellence status from the EFL for a second report running.

The Robins are one of 66 clubs to achieve the status, which is also a record number for the EFL.

In achieving Family Excellence, Cheltenham have been recognised for continuing improvements and for showing best practice in family engagement to attract and retain young fans for the future. 

The Family Excellence scheme sees clubs receive two visit assessments each season, in order to determine the quality of the family matchday experiences they provide. The scheme recognises the continuous improvement and best practice that emerges across the league and rewards clubs for their efforts in attracting and retaining young supporters.

Following the last EFL report during the 2019/20 season, Cheltenham were also awarded Family Excellence, meaning the club has maintained it's status for a second report in a row.

The appetite for live football shows no signs of slowing down with crowds for the 2022/23 season across the EFL increasing by 12% compared to the previous season with attendances at an all-time high this century.

EFL Chief Executive, Trevor Birch, said: “Our clubs deserve an enormous amount of praise for the outstanding work they have done in making sure the matchday experience is a welcoming one for all families, which has helped boost attendances across all our competitions.

“I would like to congratulate all those clubs who have achieved Family Excellence status and thank them for their efforts.”

Cheltenham Town are continuing to offer families the opportunity to enjoy matchdays at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium with our 2023/24 season tickets available at early bird prices until Friday, 2 June.

Prices have been frozen for our upcoming League One campaign, with adults starting from £12.30 per match, seniors £8.87 and 18 to 22 year olds £3.70. There are also more than £150 of savings for under-18s in the Colin Farmer Stand too.
