Oxford United Awarded Family Excellence Award Again

U's attain EFL level once more

26 April 2019

Oxford United have once again been awarded the EFL Family Excellence Award for 2018/19.

The award recognises continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement across the leagues and supports clubs’ efforts to attract and retain young fans of the future.

United received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the 2018/19 season, with their feedback and reports determining whether each respective club would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status.

The introduction of Supporter Liaison Officers to help fans on matchdays, the award-winning and unique match programme which offers advice for visiting fans as well as a pull out section for young fans, and continued schemes such as the Family Room, our 'First Time Fans' initiative, a sensory room and our Guard of Honours for youngsters all contributed to United achieving the award for the ninth time since they returned to the Football league in 2010.
