The Football League Family Excellence Award for the 2011/12 season has been awarded to Peterborough United.
50 clubs from across all three divisions of The Football League were given the Award for 2012.
Nine clubs have received this award for five years runnining while eight clubs have won the award for the first time this season.
50 clubs is a record for a season beating the previous record by 3 clubs.
The Award is based on an independent assessment, commissioned by The Football League, of the family experience at all 72 League clubs during the 2011/12 season using 'mystery shopper' families.
It recognises the outstanding experience clubs provide for young fans and families at their grounds.
Football League Chairman, Greg Clarke, said: 'The Football League Family Excellence Award provides clubs with a benchmark in their efforts to attract families through their gates.
'It is hugely encouraging to see that the number of clubs receiving the accolade is at its highest ever level, demonstrating The Football League's commitment to securing the next generation of fans.'
The Football League also aims to give encouragement to those clubs that have not been successful this time around. Best practice guidance, feedback and training will be available to the remaining clubs to encourage their efforts towards achieving the mark next season.
The Football League has also recognised the clubs delivering the very best family experience in each division through the 'Family Club of the Year' award at this season's Football League Awards.
Portsmouth, Huddersfield, Swindon Town, Dagenham & Redbridge and Cardiff City were shortlisted for the award with Portsmouth being announced as eventual overall winners.
Huddersfield Town won the League 1 award while Swindon Town were the League 2 winners.
