CHAIRMAN John Berylson has underlined his commitment to Millwall by making a further £8.5million available to the club.
Berylson, who is the major shareholder of Chestnut Hill Ventures, has increased the company's loan facility to the Lions to £20million – up from £11.5m.
The new loan is until July 2015 – meaning the American has committed himself financially to at least another three years in charge at The Den.
Berylson says the money will fund day-to-day operations at the club and the likely investment in the regeneration of the local area.
He said: "We have stated in the past that we see this as a long-term plan and I am delighted the club continues to make progress both on and off the field.
"The regeneration of the surrounding area at The Den and our commitment to the Millwall Community Scheme shows that we are here to stay and want to achieve sustainable success.
"Developing The Den and our surrounding area will help to future-proof our prospects and success."
Berylson's comments come amid a growing dispute between Millwall, Lewisham Council and developers Renewal, who are masterminding the Surrey Canal Project.
The Lions want to redevelop the Lions Centre on Bolina Road, which houses the Millwall Community Scheme, but the Council has started a tendering process which could see the land taken over by Renewal.
And in their annual accounts, also released today, Millwall have "called for Lewisham's whole-hearted support both now and in the future as the club finalises its exciting plans for these sites."
The financial report for the year ending June 2012 showed a major increase in operating losses – up to £4million from £0.6m in 2011.
Revenue was down by 2.9%, while matchday income fell 4.9%. Staff costs, which include player wage and loan budgets, rose by 22.7% to £10.3million.
