Following media reports of a terrorist threat, Millwall Football Club wishes to stress to its supporters and staff that police units, after a thorough and exhaustive investigation, have found no evidence of a direct or indirect threat to the football club, its stadium, employees or fan base.
The club wishes to praise the individual who brought information to its attention which led to the immediate suspension, pending further investigation, of a member of staff. That employee is now on sick leave and it would be inappropriate to provide any details of that individual’s condition. No arrests have been made.
The club has reviewed and furthered already rigorous existing security measures and will continue to work closely with the police and its security team to ensure the safety of all those associated with Millwall.
Despite there being no evidence of a threat, the club reminds all employees, supporters and local residents of the need to be vigilant and to report anything suspicious to a club steward or police officer. In an emergency dial 999.
