Millwall Football Club regrets to confirm to its supporters that the Sky Bet Championship game away to Rotherham United, originally scheduled for Saturday 25th August, will now take place on Sunday 26th August at the earlier kick-off time of 12.30pm.
From the first stage of contact about a proposed rescheduling of this fixture the club has been strongly against moving the day or kick-off time and later took the issue to a dispute, overseen by The EFL, having been unable to reach a fair compromise with Rotherham United Football Club.
After the dispute was concluded and a seemingly fair outcome achieved, South Yorkshire Police took the fixture to a full Safety Advisory Group meeting after which it was unfortunately decided to move the game to its new date.
The club remains firmly against what it believes to be an entirely illogical decision and regrets that fair solutions offered by itself and by The EFL have been rejected.
As is always the case in such circumstances the club has fought strenuously with the needs and interests of its supporters at the heart of its argument, as well as those of the management and team, and regrets that on this occasion a decision it believes to be completely unjustifiable, and one which shows clear moral mistreatment of football fans, is the unfortunate outcome.
