The EFL has confirmed it is working in conjunction with Millwall Football Club on plans to introduce a number of practical measures in an attempt to repair any reputational damage suffered by both the club and the League as a result of the behaviour of a minority of the club’s supporters.
Concerns crystallised at the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final against Bradford City in May when a small number of fans at the Millwall end of the stadium encroached onto the pitch at the final whistle.
The EFL and the club will work on two specific initiatives designed to eradicate any future problems when the Lions play away from The Den.
Furthermore, these positive measures will further enhance the club’s existing measures that it takes when selling tickets to fans for all away games.
Initiative One – Wembley Finals
In the event Millwall qualify for any future EFL Final at Wembley, the EFL and the club will review ticketing, security and stewarding arrangements, giving full consideration to any previous issues that have taken place at the National Stadium before a final plan is put into place.
Initiative Two - League Games
The EFL and the club will work on specific measures in relation to Millwall supporters attending fixtures at other EFL clubs. This initiative will see, amongst other things, the EFL and Millwall collaborate on how tickets are sold for away games.
At present there is no fixed timeframe for any of the agreed measures to be implemented, however, it is anticipated that a way forward can be jointly developed in the early part of the new season.
Further details will be announced in due course.
