Leeds United achieve Family Excellence Status

Record numbers of junior supporters at EFL games.

Leeds United are pleased to announce that the club has achieved Family Excellence status during the 2023/24 season.

The EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme is an annual process that assesses the family experience that clubs provide on matchdays, rewarding them for the quality of their match experience across a range of touchpoints including ticket purchase, entertainment around the stadium, accessibility, facilities, and communications.

For a third season in succession, over one million junior supporters enjoyed a live matchday experience at an EFL game either in the Sky Bet Championship, League One or League Two.  

This remarkable figure is testament to the success of the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme which has seen 68 clubs, including Leeds United, receive either the Gold, Silver or Bronze Award – a record high for the scheme this season.  

EFL Chief Executive, Trevor Birch said: “Attendances across the EFL are at a modern day high and it’s really encouraging to see more than one million junior supporters attend an EFL match for the third season in a row, highlighting the great work being done by EFL Clubs to encourage young people through the turnstiles.”
