A reprieve for Millwall?

Share/Save

Lewisham Council has postponed a meeting scheduled for tonight which would have approved a compulsory purchase order for land around Millwall's New Den ground.    The meeting will be rescheduled, but no date has been given.

Millwall are concerned that the purchase would make the ground no longer viable for football and have said they might have to relocate to North Kent.   Some locals think that a move to the vicinity of the O2 and North Greenwich tube would be more likely.

Fans of other clubs, including rivals Charlton, have rallied round Millwall and signed a petition on change.org.  The so-called regeneration or 'gentrification' project is a threat to all clubs with long-established grounds, not just Millwall.
