Family Club Of The Year

20 May 2015

Colchester United are the current top club for a family experience.

Colchester United are the current Football League Family Club of the Year.

The U's were awarded the top accolade at The Football League Awards 2015, for their efforts to make the Weston Homes Community Stadium a welcoming place for families to watch football.

The U's beat off competition from the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes Dons, Plymouth Argyle and Stevenage to claim the overall Football League Family Club of the Year Award. 

During the 2014/15 season, Colchester United set out to increase family attendance by introducing an U11s-for-free initiative at every League One fixture, with all members of staff and players contributing towards a culture where families can enjoy watching affordable live football in their town.  

Over 6,700 U11s watched for free in 2014/15 and it is hoped that number will grow in 2015/16 as the U's continue to develop a strong family product.
