Security is a team effort

EFL issue advice...

11 August 2017

Three points isn't the only priority on Saturday. Making sure everyone goes home safe is the most important result.

Millwall have been working closely with the police and the EFL over the summer to review security at The Den. Now we are asking you to do your bit.

Following the dreadful Manchester Arena bombing in May, stadium managers from clubs around the country have been briefed by counter terrorism police.

It is vital that everyone - players, staff and supporters - remain vigilant and report any concerns to stewards or police.

Attacks might be rare - and the chance of you being caught up in one is unlikely - but the message is #ActionCountersTerrorism.

Here's a quick reminder of what you can do to help keep yourself and others safe:

  • Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks
  • Minimise what you carry - fewer bag searches will speed up entry to the ground
  • Be vigilant at all times and if you see anything suspicious, tell a steward straight away
  • If you see anything that could pose an immediate threat to safety, call 999
  • In an emergency, listen to the Public Address instructions and follow them
  • If told to evacuate, do so immediately - do not wait around to film events on your mobile phone
  • Move right away from the stadium as quickly as possible for your safety and to allow clear access for any emergency vehicles
  • Once you are safe, follow the local police force on Twitter for updates

The main car park at The Den will close to vehicles 45 minutes before kick-off at every home game. This is part of the club's new car park procedures, to provide a clear environment for supporters walking outside the ground.
