EFL LINK UP WITH LIONS OVER FANS
THE EFL are working with Millwall to ensure the behaviour of a minority of the Lions’ fans does not mar the new season.
Concerns crystallised at the 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 Championship newcomers will work on two specific initiatives designed to eradicate any future problems when the club plays away from The Den.
The measures are designed to enhance the Lions’ existing measures which it takes when selling tickets to fans for all away games.
Firstly, with regard to league games, the EFL and Millwall will work on specific measures in relation to supporters attending fixtures at other EFL clubs.
This initiative will see, amongst other things, them collaborate on how tickets are sold for away games.
Secondly, with regard to Wembley finals should Millwall qualify, 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.
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 this season.
