Millwall issue update to supporters surrounding Covid-19 outbreak ahead of Derby fixture

12 March 2020

Millwall Football Club continues to monitor developments surrounding the outbreak of Covid-19 and is advancing preventative measures in line with advice from the government and appropriate bodies.

As a host of major sporting events the club is conscious of its role in minimising the potential for further spread of the virus. Saturday’s game against Derby County is scheduled to go ahead as things stand but the club will be making additional precautions in order to lessen the risk to fans, players and staff. 

No pre-match handshakes between players and management will take place and regrettably mascots, player escorts, the Guard of Honour, the Man of the Match presentation and all sponsor photos have been cancelled. Similarly, players and management will not be posing for photographs, signing autographs or engaging in any physical contact with others as per current advice. The club apologises for the disappointment and inconvenience caused by these measures and thanks supporters for their understanding.

Fans experiencing any symptom of the virus should contact 111 as per existing advice and are urged not to attend. Anyone more susceptible to contracting a virus based on their current health or other long-term conditions are also advised against attending.

The club would like to stress to its supporters that the situation surrounding Covid-19 is developing and shifting daily and as such all these matters – specifically surrounding fixtures - are subject to change. Millwall will continue to keep fans up-to-date with any additional information relating to its operations.
