Millwall Football Club was founded in 1885 as Millwall Rovers by Scottish workers in the Millwall area. The club competes in the second tier of English football, the Championship. In 1993, the club moved to its current home stadium, the Den, which has a capacity of over 20,000. Millwall FC is known for their fanatic supporters and hooliganism. The fans are commonly referred to as the Dockers. In the sixties, it was the only football club that was allowed to play their home matches at 15.15 in the afternoon, to give the Dockers a chance to finish their morning shift and visit the matches.
Millwall have long-standing rivalries with several other clubs from London, such as Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United. The matches between these clubs are referred to as South London derbies.
In 92 football seasons, the club has been promoted 11 times and relegated 9 times. They have spent most of their existence in the second and third tier of the Football League of England. In 2004, Millwall reached the FA Cup-final and qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first time in the club’s history.

Due to European competition and live TV broadcast the time and day of the match can be changed. Therefore our package deals are mostly from Saturday till Monday to cover all possible match dates. Of course it is possible to book 1 night once the dates have been confirmed. You will recognize these confirmed matches by the orange ‘date confirmed’ sticker.
