2008 Football League Awards

The Football League has announced the shortlists for five award categories in the 2008 Football League Awards incorporating FourFourTwo’s Top 50 Football League Players.

Over 123 entries were received from clubs across all three divisions, with 50 clubs entering in total. This year, the award categories have been modified to include divisional awards, with clubs from each league going head to head. 28 clubs have been shortlisted for this year’s Awards, with eight clubs earning more than one entry in the shortlists.

The winners will be announced at the third annual Football League Awards which will take place at The London Hilton, Park Lane on Sunday 2nd March 2008.

Expert judging panels were assembled for each category and the process of evaluating each entry took place at The Football League on 15th and 16th January.

Stewart Thomson, Commercial Director of The Football League said: 'The Football League Awards incorporating FourFourTwo's Top 50 Players aim to reward outstanding achievements both on and off the football pitch. This year's new Family Club of the Year award in each division will reward clubs delivering a truly outstanding family experience through their pricing, customer service and Matchday family focussed activity.
