Police insist on Leeds voucher scheme for Millwall fans

MILLWALL fans travelling to Leeds United this season will once again be required to collect their match tickets from a motorway service station.

The Lions face the Whites at Elland Road on February 14.

West Yorkshire Police were considering lifting the restrictions imposed on away supporters but have instead decided that they should remain in place.

The force were asked to comment last week but declined to make a statement.

That match will kick off at 3pm but Millwall supporters must exchange vouchers for their tickets at Woolley Edge Services between 12:15pm and 1:45pm.

Chief executive Andy Ambler said: "Our goal for next season is that our fans can purchase their tickets for a game at Leeds as they would for any other match.

"Leeds understand our point of view, and both clubs are indeed committed to try to find a way to make this happen in unison with the authorities."

    What about no one goes to the match for one season. I am sure that Leeds will have something to say about the loss of gate money and still pay for the police.

      @lennie the lion:

      Leeds don't give a sh7t about our gate money mate. They pull to big a crowd to even care. I live in Leeds and go to pretty much all away games from Birmingham Leicester upwards but going to Leeds p7sses me off.
      We, as supporters, have stood all sorts of sh7t from other club stands and not retaliated to bring about a better opinion of club and fans yet we are still being penalised for past events. Damned if ya do, damned if ya don't.
      I'm gonna go this season though to make as MUCH NOISE AS POSSIBLE AND I URGE EVERYONE TO JOIN IN PLEASE...OUR NUMBERS RECENTLY TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAVE BEEN LAUGHABLE. LETS SHOW LEEDS WHAT SUPPORT IS....anyone with me?????

    Ambler needs to grow a pair instead of rolling over. Sick to f****** death of other clubs and police doing what they like to us and we do nothing to them. Next year Ambler as mentioned double their tickets and get them to pick the tickets up at Clacket Lane and do not back down.

    Alternatively, if you succeed in getting us relegated, keep your feet up and don't worry.

    Unfortunately AA giving a political answer is what he has to do. Do I agree with it NO. I for one will not go back to Leeds until this rule has been revoked. Until then I would make all Leeds supporters have to go to Clacketts Lane services on the M25 for ALL games in London, give it one season and the pressure from their own supporters would make it change. Another thing I would do is move their fans and put them in the top tier along one of the wings, has no one else noticed that is what they done last year to away fans. Doing this costs the fans more and its about time we stated taking more money from these northern mugs.

    Wouldn't worry about next season Ambler, we probably won't be playing Leeds next season. Anyway we should all stay away from there this season and let them all get on with it. No other supporters in the land are treated like we are.

    Leeds fans to exchange vouchers for tickets @ South Mimms service on M25 for our home games would in my opinion change thing in our favour very soon ---- thats my way out of this impasse.

    Let's remember it is not Leeds football club doing this it is just the Old Bill. From what I read Leeds, as a club, want it resolved as much as us. As Boris is now a fan of ours he should tell the Met police to do exactly as the West Yorkshire police do and stop them at south Mimms as aeojt says.

    I'm not sure if boycotting this game is a good idea because the team needs our support now more then ever! It will only be our club and our fans that suffer, Yorksire would love it if we didn't show up.

    The most galling thing about this is West Yorkshire Police making statements relating to standards of behaviour. Police forces in glass houses...........
