Millwall Bushwhackers

The Millwall Bushwackers are associated with Millwall Football Club.

Millwall FC has a historic association with football hooliganism.

The original firm associated with Millwall was known as F-Troop.

Millwall Bushwackers are known as the most notorious football firm and hooligan gang in England.

The Den has been closed by the Football Association and the club has received numerous fines for crowd disorder.


During a clash with Arsenal in January 1988 in a FA Cup third round match at Highbury, 41 Millwall hooligans, were arrested after clashing with Arsenal’s firm The Herd.

In October 2004, during a Football League Cup tie at home against Liverpool, Millwall fans taunted their Liverpool counterparts with songs making fun of the Hillsborough disaster which had claimed the lives of 96 fans in 1989.

In April 2013, Millwall met Wigan Athletic in a semi final of the FA Cup. Millwall lost the game 2-0. Towards the end of the game, violence broke out in part of the stand allocated to Millwall, with individuals fighting amongst themselves and then also the police. This resulted in 14 arrests, of which only two were Wigan supporters.


The Millwall football club hooligan firm still exists today.

Ex-Millwall chairman Theo Paphitis’ introduction of a membership scheme has caused the firm to not be as large as it was at its height in the 1980s.

Sergeant Russell Lamb of the Metropolitan Police Service, a veteran of the May Day and Poll Tax riots, described this as the worst violence he had ever experienced.
