Brentford win Family Excellence Award from the Football League.

Brentford have been awarded a Football League Family Excellence Award.

Created in 2007, a total of 42 clubs from across all three divisions of The Football League have achieved the award for 2015.

Attendance in The Football League by juniors and families has risen by 31 per cent compared with a six per cent increase in overall attendance during the same period.

Brentford were given the award for the seventh time in eight years and the sixth year in a row.

The award recipients are decided by an independent assessment using real families that has been commissioned by The Football League, at all 72 League clubs, during the 2014/15 season.

In announcing the successful clubs, Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey, said: “The Football League Family Excellence Award gives clubs a standard to aspire to when planning their efforts to attract more families and young fans to their matches.

“It is hugely encouraging to see so many clubs receiving the accolade, demonstrating The Football League’s ongoing commitment to securing the next generation of fans.”
