Millwall – The New Den

Jump to: HotelsPubsParkingDirectionsFan’s comments

new den millwallThe New Den is an all-seater stadium, with a capacity of 20,146. Opened in August 1993, the stadium is less than a quarter of a mile away from the original Den, which had been the home of Millwall FC for 83 years.

With a build cost of £16 million, it was the first new football stadium to be constructed for a professional team in London since 1937, and the first all-seater stadium to be completed after the Taylor Report on the Hillsborough disaster.

The new Den is made up of four, fair sized two tiered stands that are of the same height. The corners of the ground are open, apart from one corner where there is a large video screen.

What have other Away Fans said about their trip?

away fans millwallVisiting fans report that the New Den is a dramatic improvement on the foreboding old ground. Away fans are housed in the upper tier of the North Stand, where facilities and the view of play are reported good, though the quality of food on offer is reportedly poor. Many visitors have found the New Den to be quite intimidating and advise covering club colours around the ground.

Most visitors report a very large Police presence at the ground. Several fans have reported that despite a cursory search on entry to the ground, the game was interrupted by sections of both home and away fans throwing missiles at each other and onto the pitch. Numerous visiting fans have been worried about getting away from the ground safely, but report that the Police have been very helpful in ensuring their safe conduct.

    The Den is a very neat ground i went on a friday night made a 4 hour trip down from york for the game at 7:45pm kick off when you first get there. you look at millwall fans and it only looks like about 2,000 people in the ground but lots of people turn up 5 minuites before the kick off and then they get around 12,000 to 15,000. Millwall fans get really jeered up and i personally think it is the best atmostphere in England better than Anfield (Liverpool) Fratton Park (Portsmouth) Britiania (Stoke City) White heart lane (tottenham) nothing compares to “The New Den” Millwall play a song called “let em come down to The Den” as the players enter the field of play.

    Famous Millwall songs:

    “No one likes us
    No one likes us
    No one likes us
    We don’t care we are Millwall
    super Millwall
    we are Millwall from The Den

    “MMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL”

    “F*** em all
    F*** em all
    United,West Ham nd Liverpool
    Cause we are the Millwall we are the best
    we are the Millwall so F*** all the rest”

    “Eio Eio Eio Eio Eio”

    “WE ARE EVIL WE ARE EVIL WE ARE EVIL”

    Must suggestion If you are a drinker before the game do not go anyone near ground Millwall fans will show you how they feel if you are in their pub aspecially if you have a northern accent and if you come out of their pub with out any broken bones take that as a bonus.

    When ever you go to “The Den” it will be a itimidating experience but Enjoy ! 🙂

    Just been to Millwall in the FA Cup and I have to say it is a nice little ground. After leaving South Bermondsey the police put any away supporters into a separate walkway to the ground. Away supporters are housed in the upper tier and the view is fantastic although with the wind it is a little cold.

    It was one of the best atmospheres I had experienced (only bettered at Villa away). Both sets of fans were singing the whole game and exchanging banter with each other, although saying that I had expected the Millwall fans to be a little bit more hostile than they were. Legroom was good although we all stood for the home game. With about 5 minutes to go the Millwall fans found their voices again and several chants of bushwackers were followed with zulu army and zulus gonna get ya, but that was as heated as it got.

    After the game you will locked outside for 25 minutes while the police move the Millwall fans away so there is a clear walkway. Also, when you arrive back at London Bridge station, you will be locked in the train for 10 minutes while the police clear a passageway for you and stick you on a train.

    All in all a brilliant away day, and don’t be put off with stories about the Millwall fans, it is a really safe ground and easy to get to. Recommend everyone should go

    ive been down to the den a few times myself ,i think is the best vocal support in britian,maybe in the world.ive been all over the world watchin footy matches like the champions league final and also to rangers-celtic,galatasaray-fenerbache,lazio -juventes,ac v inter and city v united games and millwall has blew me away with there atmosphere.people say us and newcastle are the most passionate but 9 times out of 10 thats by our own fans.since the fa cup match were i went down the den a nice few years ago ive become attached to the place and sometimes when liverpool are playing away at sides like wigan,i go down the den the other week i went to a tuesday night game and it seemed as if there were 40,000 not 8,000 in the crowd for the amount of fans the vocal support is the best anywhere.cos ive got a scouse accent tend to wear a bit of miilwall merchandise other wise you might get a punch in the face.the best atmosphere,most intimadating and also most passionate in the world, millwall.

    i went away last season and it was great atmosphere, there were a guy who looked like borris Johnson in the millwall we were chanting ‘Borris is a W****R’ and ‘There’s only one borris Johnson’. We also won 6-1 🙂

    I would advise as an away supporter to get down to the ground early as there is no seating arrangmen, if you are with someone and the match is sold out you may have to sit apart.

    there where a pub near to the ground i went in there with my dad, some people gave a thew looks, there where some of the older supporters who i was talking to in the pub though about football.

    All in all a great day out!

    Nice ground, good atmoshere and decent chips. Had a drink in The Glode nera London Bridge prior to game and met some Millwall fans and had a good chat with them.
    All the stories you hear about Millwall are not true. Safest ground I have been too with the scure walk way (wish they had them at other grounds), and most pleasant fans in the pub before the game.
    Up in the Upper Tier there is no seat allocation so go where you want.
    Highly recommend this ground, unlike the Riverside and Elland Road.

    I visited Millwall for an FA cup tie.
    Despite the horror stories it was a great day out.
    We didnt drink around the ground, but instead at Waterloo and London Bridge. Although I didnt wear colours, plenty did without incident.
    The journey to the ground was easy taking the train from London Bridge to South Bermondsay… Hundreds of Police everywhere (all well humoured). The Police stamped on anyone that threatened to get a little too excited.
    We left the station at South Bermondsay and followed the signs which lead Away fans along a high fenced walkway direct to the Away Stand.
    Once in the ground the Stewards were friendly and the Beer and pies were waiting. Usual prices.
    The new Den is a nice ground with good uninterupted views and modern seating.
    The home fans sang the usual ‘Everyone hates us’ song etc,..
    After the game we were held back for nearly half an hour before the Police released us. Once at London Bridge station the Police herded us towards the tube.
    I would happily visit again…. Dont take the mickey (as anywhere), and you’ll have a safe and enjoyable experience.

    One of the best and safest away daze on the planet.

    I live in the Midlands but have a static caravan in Kent, so we dropped Er Indoors off at Bluewater and me and three youngsters got a shuttle bus up to Greenhithe then a return to South Bermondsey via London Bridge.

    Whilst at London Bridge, if you leave yourself plenty of time you can seek refreshments without any bother. I had three of my youngsters with me, we all wore colours and there was no hassle at LB getting something to eat and drink and the prices were very cheap too. Particularly as us northern monkeys expect Landan to be rip off city.

    It is just four minutes to South Bermondsey Station from LB. Trains are regular and run like clockwork. You might see the odd native on the train but Id hazard a guess you would see far more if you approached South Bermondsey from the south,

    South Bermondsey is an ugly squat station, but the Met will meet and greet you and outside the station you veer off right down a walkway protected by an eight foot fence (partially covered) and it is literally a two minute walk to the turnstiles.I am sure a caught a glimpse of the railway arches where Danny Dyer got a kicking in the Football Factory and saw the ghost boy!

    With it being Millwall v Leeds, as soon as we got through the turnstile it reminded me a bit of that scene at the end of the Blues Brothers where Jake and Ellwood hand over the cash and are confronted by umpteen coppers, snipers etc but it was all good humoured. As an early post says, you can set anywhere within your block so if you have a big following it is best to get in early if you want to sit with your family and mates.

    There was no beer on sale with it being Leeds, so they were doing a roaring trade in 500ml bottles of Coke etc at an eye watering £2.10 a pop! Even Ken Bates doesn’t charge that much.

    No they are not very nice, no one likes em, they fear no foe etc etc etc….a bit like the Istanbul chants, stab and cut throat gestures and Turkish flags, it is getting a bit boring now. Like the idiots we have who persist in taunting Man U about Munich, when they actually get behind their team it is a better atmosphere than other London grounds twice or three times the size…notably Spurs and Arsenal.

    The Police/Stewards manage to clear the stadium in mega quick time, Gradually you will be let out into the compound behind the away end where the coaches will be waiting, or if you are on the train they will hold you back for a few minutes and board you on to a waiting service train – much to the bemusement of locals out shopping or visiting friends for the day.

    We didn’t get held at LB either – great day out and we won 1-0 too!

    Might be intimidating if anyone turned up. Attendence of lower championship club and that exactly where they will stay until they get relegated.

    One of the few modern (ish) stadiums to retain an old fashioned feel.

    Doesn’t have that plastic, souless feel a lot of stadiums have these days.

    Millwall fans are probably the most animated in the country, I saw one tackle on one of their players greeted as if every one in the crowd had seen their own mother attacked. It makes for a great atmosphere. 12,000 Millwall fans make more noise than any other club’s fans in London by a long way.

    You won’t find trouble in the ground or outside it, but I’d still avoid pubs in Bermondsey and New Cross on match day though. Most away fans avoid home fans by drinking around Lonon Bridge and getting the walkway, amusingly nicknamed ‘coward’s way’ by locals, from South Bermondsey station to the away end.

    Always a good football day out.

    What can I say – I want to hate Millwall but I have to admit a feeling of intense jealousy. I have traveled all over premiership and championship grounds and NEVER have I experienced an atmosphere that comes close. The song ‘Let ’em come’ when their players run out is unique and actually a song – not a chant. The fans are sooo passionate. Yes its intimidating – but its electric. As for the Millwall fans – forget the old stereotypes. In a LOCAL pub, I had my scarf on and a local fan said “F*** me, your brave mate – what are you having?” On the train, there were a few fans who just talked about the game.

    Yes we got abuse during the game – yes it was bad. But after – they were charming. I dont hate them, whether they care or not and look forward to going a back. As one fan said – “its only a game – hope you enjoyed it – just dont tell anyone”

    As a 30 somethin i was lucky enough to have my best football days jumping up and down on the old east terrace but since the villa game (I never thought I’d say this) it’s not ‘the new den’ anymore, just ‘the Den’. Maybe our best days are ahead?! Rockin’ all over the world!

    Good atmosphere, Good facilities, South Bermondsey isn’t a nice place but if you are bringing food and drink in, hide it in your kids pocket because they don’t search kids and they confiscate all food, if you walk outside the station, you have a little row of shops, chicken shop, care, William hill, lots of police about so nothing terrible, millwall fans aren’t threatening at all, pubs in Bermondsey and surrounding area are terrible and more filled with locals not supporters, go to London Bridge and you get good football banter, nice enough supporters in there, no troublemakers, but they were annoyed we beat them 2 – 1 however someone was also racially abused in our stand also they were singing something about a kid in a snapback, oh well, in all fairness, keep your head down and your fine.

    I’m not a great lover of millwall fc…but who is.but if your a fan of only fools and horses and step toe,you will love your trip to the new den,if you crave to be thrown back to the good old days when a tooth extraction seems a better option than a filling you will fit right in,as a travelling leeds fan we were made to feel ever so welcome by the locals who even did a welcome war dance which involves various hand gestures and bouncing up and down shouting c’mon you northern mugs you want some…but she was soon restrained by her embarrased husband.as far as drinking around bermondsey it wouldn’t be my first recommendation unless you are in training for an upcoming UFC fight.london bridge and Surrey quays is the best bet.and that’s where you will be met by your not so wanted or needed police escort,who like to mention we are only here for your safety as the locals arnt too pleased that you have the cheek to watch football in our stadium.on your through the ages sight seeing escorted tour to the ground you will witness many fascinating sub cultures and extreme poverty,it is advised you don’t come into direct contact with the villagers or street urchins and beggars who can be easily identified by kappa tracksuits and Burberry caps.who like to remind you that “nobody likes us” yeah I bet that goes for your mum too…..on arrival at the ground you will be mistaken your not at a conference ground.to be fair to them its rubbish at best.as for the world class atmosphere,you will be dissapointed,its half full of fans and the noise levels are average and not in the slightest intimidating.i advise you make at least one visit to the den in your lifetime it doesn’t give you the satisfaction of giving money to a third world charity but at least you can say you have visited one and did your bit for the poor and needy of this world

    I went to the ‘Old Den’ a couple occasios and it was far from a nice day out. So Aston Villa draw Millwall in the 4th round of the FA Cup and it was a Friday night. So me and my son made a weekend of it,travelled down Friday morning stayed at Bermondsey Sqaure hotel which I highly recommend a 15 minute walk to ‘The New Den’ and 10 miniute walk to London Bridge station,also the hotel was right next Manzes pie & mash as we were in London lets have a cockney tradition. We got to the ground 1 hour before kick-off with a large police presence and even the I recommend not to wear your teams colours although the Millwall fans don’t wear much of their teams merchandise. So we get into the ground and the atmosphere was dead until 15 minutes before kick off then ‘The Clash-London Calling’ rocked the ground on the pa system,Millwall fans roared a “MILLLLLLLLLLLLLLL” which echoed the ground and the big screen showing the players in the tunnel with the words ‘THIS IS THE LIONS DEN’ as players marched onto the pitch the song ‘Let ’em come’ the famous Millwall song which was very catchy. We sadly lost 2-1 but the atmosphere was just like the old ground,the away players were tooo scared to go near the touchline. Millwall fans are very passionate and very old school in the way they act e.g the songs they sing my favourite was “NO ONE LIKES US! WE DON’T CARE!” The final moments of the match that echoed throughout the ground felt like their was 80,000 instead of 18,000. The full-time whistle went and ‘Status Quo-Rocking All Over The World’ came on with all Millwall fans singing and dancing along which was a laugh. I then left the ground got the train from South Bermondsey to London Bridge then tube to Canary Wharf for a drink with me old friend which took 15 mins in total. Me and my son got last tube back from there at 12:51am and walked back to our hotel which is a pleasant walk and it is set in a yuppie and modern area. I would recommend staying there for a weekend as it is a cracking away day. fact: Millwall’s ground in the closest ground to the city of London.

    went to the den for the last game of the season with Bournemouth, got the train up from down here with a few mates. we decided to go via west norwood station and change there to get the train to south Bermondsey. were not many millwall fans on the train which was a surprise. once we got off the train there were plenty of police and cameras keeping things under control, we took the cage into the ground which was also full of police and stewards who were willing to talk to us before the game started. when in the ground, friendly stewards inside the ground helped us find our seats and had a chat with us about what we thought. when the players came out the tunnel and the famous ‘let em come’ millwall song was played, I haven’t heard a louder noise then that both then and when millwall scored their goal to win them the game and keep them up. in all fairness the millwall fans and atmosphere inside the ground was breath-taking and very hostile, meaning the millwall players were up for the match. no trouble after the game and was easy to get too and from the ground with no other trouble with was anticipated before play, will definitely be going to the new den again

    Travelled down from Wigan to to watch the Wolves at the Den. Great day out; great turn out from Wolves fans and a brilliant atmosphere made from the home boys. Took my two lads who have never been before and they rate it better than premiership grounds for atmosphere.
    Very well policed; we threw away a 3-0 lead which had the home support going mental when they got it back to 3-3. Kept us locked in for an hour after the game and had some fun on the coach with the locals on the way out. Great day out and definitely a ground to visit for sure. Whorya……….

    I’ve been to the Den a few times. Each time is roughly the same as the last.

    Fans are on the most part ok, with a few exceptions. They create a reasonable atmosphere with the limited amount of songs that they sing and the limited amount of fans that they have.
    Most noise is individual insults hurled from the fans towards the players or the opposing fans. a murmur of swear words fills the air from start of the match till the end.

    The other thing that fills the air is smell from the giant insinuator next door to the ground. The other landmarks surrounding the ground aren’t much better. Giant fences to keep the two sets of supporters away from each other dominator most of the rest of the landscape.

    There is no pubs of any note nearby. A few on the old kent road but most are filled with home support. Probably the closest reasonably friendly pub for a drink would be the pub opposite new cross gate station. The Hogoblin. I would not recommend this though and would recommend having a drink in London Bridge. Plenty of pubs well worth a visit there.

    Overall the place is grim. Which I believe the majority of home supporters are happy with. Makes it more intimidating I guess.

    Always a good away trip and really easy to get to. Most away fans tend to drink in London Bridge but if you’re clued up there are some cracking options near the ground. There are a handful of microbreweries that open their doors on a Saturday afternoon nearby and one of them, Fourpure, is a five minute walk from the Den, in the industrial estate next to South Bermondsey station. Brilliant beer and a friendly, non-football crowd. No problems getting away from the ground, trains are really frequent taking you back into central London. A 2-0 win meant it was a good day all round.

Have you visited Millwall – The New Den as an away fan?
