Junior fans invited to enjoy our Family Lounge situated at the back of the Family Stand
3.5m juniors ‘Enjoy the Match’ in The Football League
Crewe Alexandra and the other 71 teams across The Football League sold a combined 3,500,000 junior tickets last season, meaning young people made up almost 1/3 of all crowds last season.
Over the last six seasons junior attendance in The Football League has risen by 31% compared with a 6% increase in overall attendance during the same period.
The new figures are being seen as a ringing endorsement of Football League clubs’ extensive work to reach out, attract and engage with families through their own enhanced dedicated family-friendly facilities and innovative matchday entertainment, as well as The Football League’s Enjoy the Match campaign. Alongside The Football League Family Excellence Awards Scheme, the Enjoy The Match Campaign plays a crucial role in helping clubs to attract families and young supporters to Football League matches.
Everyone at Crewe Alexandra hopes that our invited youngsters enjoy Saturday’s home game against Colchester United and the use of our designated family room situated to the back of the Family Stand.
Launched in 2008, Enjoy the Match focusses on a Code of Conduct in which clubs pledge to enforce a zero tolerance policy on anti-social behaviour in the dedicated family areas across The Football League, encouraging clubs to create a family atmosphere at games that can be enjoyed by supporters of all ages.
Please call the Ticket Office on 01270 252610 for more details.Don’t forget that Crewe Alexandra continue to offer a free season ticket to our young fans if they are under 11 and are accompanied by an adult season ticket holder. This has proved extremely popular and is available in all areas of the Alexandra Stadium.
