Police have already stated we're not getting both tiers there, so just the 1900.

Why? That's utterly ridiculous, it could be a promotion decider.

I think we know why - could get very messy otherwise!

They have had that number of away fans there before. We shouldn't be penalised for the behaviour of opposition fans. If the police feel that Millwall cannot host a game at the end of the season without such restrictions in place, the League should ensure that Millwall are not at home last game of the season.

Where is this announcement, I can't find it online?

You mean like Brighton at ours could have been a promotion decider last season?

We won't be getting the bottom tier. Get over it.

We should have given Brighton more tickets, I said so at the time.But they weren't being punished unfairly compared to any other club, as we are if the OP is correct. They were given the maximum allocation that other away teams get at Villa Park.

It's amazing how your heart bleeds for a Villa fan who may miss out due to the rotten swines that let friends use their references, but if I disagree with a decision to deny thousands of Villa fans a chance to go to what could be our most important game in three years, I should "get over it".

I hope the Millwall fans slash your drunk-driven car's tires.

It's not worth falling out over.

We aren't going to get more tickets. Teams get more tickets there in the FA Cup but the maximum allocation for league games is lower.

I wished we had 10,000 tickets but unfortunately, the bottom line is that we're just going to get the upper tier.

The maximum allocation for league games at Millwall is far higher than we are being given, if the OP is correct. I don't expect Millwall to open extra stands. These are seats that will remain empty unless Villa fans buy them. It's nothing to do with cup allocations.

Why are you so confident that it is accurate? Do you have a link to the statement saying we aren't getting more?

See what the Met say. If they do it for the Cup they can do it for us.

League rules are 20% or 2,000, whichever is lower. The upper tier holds 2,100 I believe, which is all that Millwall are obliged to give. In the FA Cup, they have to give 25% although even this can be swerved if the police have an input.

Pretty sure the rule is 2K for a capacity of 20K+ or 10% for capacity below that. In the PL it's 3K or 10%, dependant on capacity.

And the FA Cup is 15%.

And here it is https://www.efl.com/-more/governance/efl-rules--regulations/section-5--fixtures/

Quote
34.2.1 Each Club must make provision for at least 2,000 visiting supporters at every home match or such number as represents 10% of the Club’s certified capacity, if less than 2,000. The League may, on the prior written application of a Club, suspend this Regulation or reduce the figure either for a particular League Match or for a period of time. Each Club shall, subject to any dispensations granted by the Board, make provision for at least 200 of the visiting supporters to be accommodated under cover. Any Club which fails to meet the requirement of 200 visiting supporters being accommodated under cover and which does not have a dispensation granted by the Board shall have such amounts as the Board shall determine (in its absolute discretion) withheld from that Club’s central distributions from the Pool Account until such time as the Club can meet the requirement.

Do Millwall ever open the bottom tier of the away end?  It always looks unused/empty on TV.
