The EFL Cup

The winner of the EFL’s ‘Family Club of the Year’ award is a real surprise (Video)

No joke

League One side Millwall have won the ‘Family Club of the Year’ award at the 2017 EFL awards.

No, this is not a late April Fool’s joke.

Sure, Millwall’s season ticket for under-12s costs just £23, which works out to around £1 per match. Yes, the club provides great facilities for kids visiting the ground. This is all well and good, but what about the elephant(s) in the room?

Blind eye

Ignoring Millwall’s more rowdy fans seems strange.

Fans of the League One side have been involved in many controversies in recent times, most recently against Spurs in this season’s FA Cup.

While one Millwall fan punched a Spurs supporter, others inside the stadium racially abused Tottenham’s Heung-min Son.
