Millwall collect two Family awards

8 May 2015

Zampa's Family Club voted 'Best Family Area in Stadia' 2014/15

Zampa's Family Club here at The Den has been voted 'Best Family Area in Stadia' at the Football League Family Excellence Awards 2014/15.

Millwall overcame 71 other Football League sides to pick up the prestigious award, which is given to the club who have offered the most outstanding area for families inside their ground on matchdays during the 2014/15 season.

Zampa's Family Club underwent a relocation and redesign ahead the 2013/14 campaign and those who visit the area on matchdays will have become familiar with the various extras on offer, including games consoles, sweets stalls, a replica dugout and visits from mascots Zampa and Bolina as well as first team players. This award also comes just 12 months after the club collected the 'Most Improved Family Experience' trophy at last season's Football League Family Excellence Awards.

In addition to the 'Best Family Area in Stadia' accolade, for the second season running Millwall have also collected the Football League's Family Excellence Award, which is given to clubs following two separate genuine family visits to the stadium as home supporters. Created in 2007, the award recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families as part of a scheme that won the Gold Award at the European Professional Football Leagues' Best Practice awards.

In receiving the Football League Family Excellence Award, Millwall has been recognised as offering superb entertainment for families at The Den throughout the 2014/15 season.

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."
