EFL: Grounds teams of the season revealed

United recognised as highly commended

12 May 2021

The 2020/2021 season has been extremely challenging for all clubs in relation to their pitches but, as ever, ground staff have produced some fantastic work throughout the campaign.

Carrying out a tremendously important job to prepare their respective pitches for matches and maintain them throughout the calendar, things were made more difficult this season due to the lack of time to carry out pitch maintenance and renovations at the end of the 19/20 season, along with the intense fixture schedule for this season following the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020.

As the 2020/21 campaign draws to a close, grounds teams up and down the country have been recognised for their continued commitment and efforts.

Here's a list of this season's winners:

Sky Bet Championship 

Grounds Team of the Season - Watford

Highly Commended – AFC Bournemouth

Highly Commended - Stoke City

Sky Bet League One

Grounds Team of the Season - Doncaster Rovers

Highly Commended – Plymouth Argyle

Highly Commended – Portsmouth

Highly Commended – Shrewsbury Town

Sky Bet League Two

Grounds Team of the Season - Forest Green Rovers

Highly Commended – Carlisle United

Highly Commended – Cheltenham Town

We'll have full reaction to this news from Dave Mitchell on the official site next week, as well as an update on the planned pitch renovations.
