Millwall reveal details of new Fans Panel

17 August 2017

The Fan on the Board has recently introduced a Fans Panel, fully approved by Millwall's Board of Directors, whereby a group of supporters meet with representatives of the club every eight-12 weeks to discuss a variety of issues affecting fans.

The panel includes members from each of the current supporter groups and a selection of members from across online fan forums and others platforms.
 
The panel's meetings will be held at The Den with Millwall CEO Steve Kavanagh and Micky Simpson, the Fan on the Board, both present. Topics for discussion will be raised by both the club and members of the panel.
 
The supporters present at the meetings are encouraged to discuss the content of each get-together, then share feedback from fans with the club.
 
One of the key goals of the panel is to agree a set tariff of warnings and bans for fans who fall foul of stadium and other regulations in order that supporters will, in future, know where they stand if they receive a ban. This is a new approach to the current open-ended system which leaves a fan who receives a ban facing an unknown length of time away from games. The panel is working to agree a formal appeal process, which will be easily accessible, for fans who receive more lengthy bans to turn to.
 
Bans for the higher level regulation breaches (over a set number of games) will automatically have a right of appeal, and this process will be brought to the banned person's attention when they receive the detail of the ban.
 
The panel will meet with the club at four-week intervals to anonymously address any appeals and, where possible, will try to agree to the ban being brought to an end or shortened.
 
The tariffs are currently in the process of being addressed and more information will be made public as soon as possible.
