FANS REQUESTED TO STAY OFF PITCH AFTER SEMI-FINAL

28 February 2017

Both sets of supporters are asked not to invade the pitch

In the event that the Hatters win the Checkatrade Trophy semi-final against Oxford United tomorrow night to progress to the final against Coventry City at Wembley, it is requested that supporters do not run onto the pitch to celebrate.

The same request is also made to visiting supporters from Oxford if their team is successful on the night.

From a Luton Town perspective, there are another six hugely important games to be played at Kenilworth Road between the final whistle of the semi-final and the end of the regular league season, and protection of the playing surface could be crucial to the Town’s ambition of achieving promotion.

Manager Nathan Jones has implemented an attractive style of football for which a superb surface is imperative, and we do not want potentially lasting damage done to the team’s ability to be able to play that way by hundreds of people invading the pitch.

While the jubilance of celebrating a victory that may seal a trip to the national stadium is understandable, the best way of showing your appreciation of your team’s efforts is to remain in the stands as the squad celebrates on the pitch, without having to rush inside.

Please respect the tireless efforts of groundsman Richard Bird and his staff by not invading the pitch, and be aware that anyone doing could face a ban from attending future games here at Kenilworth Road.
