Mansfield Town will publish a matchday programme next season, despite Football League clubs being given the option of not doing.

The regulation stating clubs must produce a programme was amended at the EFL’s annual general meeting at its summer conference.

But a spokesman for Mansfield Town said: “The Stags have committed to the production of its award-winning matchday programme for next season.”

Last season Mansfield Town won the Programme Of The Year award for Sky Bet League Two, chosen by Programme Monthly, which said: “Mansfield’s programme is quality on all fronts.”

It was the first time the Stags had won the League Two award, after finishing runner-up 12 months earlier.

The programme, called The Stag, was also named best programme by Sports Trader magazine in 2016/2017.
