Family Excellence

Charlton Athletic are proud to announce the club have received the EFL Family Excellence Award for the 2022/23 season.

The Family Excellence scheme, created in 2007, 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.

Charlton have picked up the award in each of the last five seasons and this year’s report referenced: “The Addicks' reputation for family engagement came across strongly again in 2022/23.”

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.

“From improved engagement with supporters before and after games, to innovative approaches around the matchday itself, such as creating dedicated fanzones and improving catering options, clubs are pulling out all the stops to enhance their offering and attract the next generation of young fans.

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