EFL Day of Action a huge hit!

Clubs up and down the country showcased the best of their community work on Tuesday...

10 March 2020

EFL Clubs and their respective Club Community Organisations (CCOs) came together on Tuesday 10 March to highlight the positive impact football has in changing people’s lives and the work taking place to tackle some of society’s biggest issues.

Across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two, events were held by Clubs on EFL Day of Action to showcase the best programmes and activity delivered in a number of important areas, including diversity and inclusion, education, and health and wellbeing.

Aimed at uniting Clubs and CCOs on one day to celebrate and highlight the impact they have in their communities, the EFL Day of Action brought together the most unique projects and programmes being run across England and Wales.

Managers and players from EFL Clubs played their part too, paying special visits to see participants in action and to provide their support to various projects.

The impact of the work carried out by EFL Clubs and CCOs remains unparalleled, with more than half a million hours of group activity delivered and over 40 million hours of participation each season.

During the 2018/19 season, almost 900,000 people took part in a wide range of activities across key areas, with Clubs and CCOs receiving over £60 million of direct project funding.
