Tranmere Rovers Football Club is one of only nine Football League clubs to have won the Family Excellence Award in each of the five years of its existence.
Created in 2007, the Award is based on an independent assessment, commissioned by The Football League, of the family experience at all 72 League clubs during the 2011-12 season using ‘mystery shopper’ families and recognises the outstanding experience clubs provide for young fans and families at their grounds.
The Club was awarded ‘The Football League Family Excellence Award’ for the fifth successive year in April 2012.
Earlier this season the Club was also shortlisted for Family Club of the Year at the Football League Awards.
Tranmere Rovers Chief Executive Mick Horton said: “We take our commitment to providing value for money for families very seriously so we are delighted to win the Football League Family Excellence Award again.
“We’re especially pleased to be one of such a small number of clubs to have won the award every year since it was introduced.
“The awards were announced at a Football League meeting today where we were asked to speak about a DVD we have made to help new supporters visiting Prenton Park for the first time, something which played a part in the Club achieving the award once again.
“This award recognises the hard work we put in throughout the season to make Prenton Park a family friendly venue and we’re looking at ways to further improve the matchday experience next season.”
In announcing the successful clubs, Football League Chairman, Greg Clarke, said: “The Football League Family Excellence Award provides clubs with a benchmark in their efforts to attract families through their gates.
“It is hugely encouraging to see that the number of clubs receiving the accolade is at its highest ever level, demonstrating The Football League’s commitment to securing the next generation of fans.”
