Potential friendly match must be played behind closed doors

As we reported on last month, Hatters manager Nathan Jones will take his squad to Hungary in early July to continue their pre-season preparations with a week-long training camp.

While there it is hoped that a training match can be arranged against a local club, although nothing has been confirmed at this stage with regard to opposition or date.

It is understood, and very much appreciated, that some Luton Town supporters have already begun preparations to travel to Hungary to offer their backing to the team.

Under any normal circumstances this loyal support and the expense incurred would be most welcome by Nathan and his players, especially being more than 1,000 miles from Kenilworth Road.

Unfortunately, the club are disappointed to have been informed that despite our protestations, any match that can be arranged will have to be played strictly behind closed doors.

We are sorry that our supporters will not be able to watch the team out in Hungary, but the venue have stressed that logistically they would struggle to cope with any kind of crowd and the match would not be allowed to go ahead if supporters were to attend.
