Millwall Football Club wishes to update its supporters with the latest information surrounding allegations of homophobic mass chanting during the victory over Reading at The Den on Saturday 18th January 2020.
The club instigated an immediate investigation into the allegations which has been every bit as thorough and exhaustive as is appropriate in such circumstances.
Despite this comprehensive investigation, however, no evidence has come to light to substantiate the allegations.
The club was immensely disappointed by the media coverage of this incident and was especially outraged by outlets whose use of language implied guilt before any facts were established. Such blatant misreporting is extremely harmful to the reputation of its supporters and to the efforts of the entire football family in fighting all forms of discrimination. The club has already received apologies from some of the news organisations concerned and now anticipates similarly widespread reporting of this outcome to its investigation into the matter.
Millwall would like to thank fans for their outstanding ongoing support both on and off the pitch.
