As part of Your Move’s commitment to local communities, they are sponsoring the Community Club of the Year Award.
EFL Clubs continue to be at the heart of their communities, the power of football continues to be undeniable and the importance and influence of football and its Clubs continues to increase well beyond the 90 minutes on the pitch.
The Community Club of the Year Award recognises the EFL Clubs that - alongside their Club Community Organisations (CCOs) - demonstrate outstanding success based on the depth and breadth of their work and their impact on their local communities.
To be in with the chance of winning the accolade, Clubs provide extensive information showing their work across the community and projects under the key strategic pillars of the EFL Trust, focusing on Health and Wellbeing, Education & Employability and Participation & Community Engagement.
The award highlights the outstanding work that EFL Clubs do in their local communities as well as the incomparable reach they have.
Port Vale were named Your Move Community Club of the Year for 2021. The club's Foundation and response to the pandemic caught the judge’s attention due to its authenticity and their impressive ability to mobilise their community. An unbelievable 300,000 meals were delivered by the club, reducing the serious impact of recent times for those in need. Their ability to provide such widespread support alongside maintaining projects that focus closely on smaller diverse groups of individuals, such as their sport and dance youth club, was applauded by the panel of judges.
