Brighton & Hove Albion have been named as one of 42 clubs to receive the Football League Family Excellence Award for the 2014/15 season.
The award recognises the outstanding experience provided by clubs for young fans and families on a matchday.
Albion were chosen as one of the clubs to receive the award after The Football League commissioned an independent assessment using real families at all of the 72 clubs during the 2014/15 season.


It is the second time that the club has been recognised for their superb family hospitality, after receiving the Championship Family Club of the Year award at the 2015 Football League Awards last month.
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.”
A total of six clubs secured the award for the eighth year running – Doncaster Rovers, Huddersfield Town, Ipswich Town, Milton Keynes Dons, Shrewsbury Town and Tranmere Rovers. York City have been awarded the accolade for the first time.
