Millwall issue statement following government announcement

9 December 2021

Millwall Football Club notes the government’s announcement to implement ‘Plan B’ Covid restrictions from next Wednesday 15th December.

The latest update can be found here.

As the club has maintained throughout the pandemic, it would never introduce any restrictions beyond what is mandated by Government. These new restrictions unfortunately mean that proof of a negative lateral flow test result, or vaccination certification, will be a condition of entry to matches both home and away until such time as regulations are changed.

While the club is frustrated at logistical and financial impact these measures will have for the fans and Club alike, it will be required by law to carry them out. It is not the club’s choice, and we therefore ask supporters to work with staff to ensure compliance and to minimise inconvenience for all concerned.

For clarity, you do not have to be fully vaccinated in order to attend matches. Proof of a negative lateral flow test – which is good practice to help ensure the health and safety of everyone – will suffice.

The club will release further information, including details for under 18s, as and when exact guidance and regulations have been communicated by its local safety authorities.

The absence of supporters prior to this season had an immeasurably negative impact and the club’s primary focus is on doing all it can to ensure fans can continue to attend matches both at The Den and away from home. With that objective in mind, the club again asks for patience and understanding from supporters while these measures are legally enforceable.
