Family Excellence

Argyle Once Again Recognised by EFL

26 April 2018

ARGYLE have once again been award Family Excellence status by the EFL.

Judged on a range of criteria, including activities, staff engagement, cleanliness, friendliness and more, Argyle were rated sixth for League One, and 20th in the EFL at large.

A letter received to us, from the EFL, read: "I am delighted to confirm that your Club has achieved FAMILY EXCELLENCE status this season,  recognising the extraordinary quality of the family experience you provide.

"Thanks to your hard work, overall EFL attendances are continuing to increase and EFL clubs are setting the benchmark globally for family engagement with more and more leagues looking to you for inspiration."

Specifically, our report praised our range of activities for families, as well as improvements made from previous visits' suggestions.

The report said: "Plymouth Argyle have performed extremely well this season: not only because of the contribution of Pilgrim Pete and the quality of entertainment & activities inside the stadium (concourse & adjoining room), but also because they have listened and acted upon the experienced assessor’s feedback by introducing a mobile retail kiosk and dramatically improving the refreshments experience (the pasty is always a winner, but they’ve also added sandwiches and pasta salads)."

The Home Park Family Zone for All has been a huge success since its launch in 2012, with numbers attending our 'Match-Day Magic' sessions run by the Argyle Community Trust, as well as others sitting in blocks 17-18, rising year on year. Pete and Trust welcome families of all ages, with various activities to keep everyone occupied, as well as being able to watch the football. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported Argyle and the Community Trust in making Home Park a safe, friendly and fun way for families to enjoy football.
