Luton’s season resumes on Saturday

Luton Town Football Club and public services in Bedfordshire are asking fans to stay at home and watch matches once the football season resumes.

While the Premier League will be televised again from this evening (Wednesday), Luton Town will resume their Championship season with a home game against Preston North End on Saturday (20 June 2020), kicking-off at 3pm.

Games will take place behind closed doors so there will be no access to the public. Strict plans have been put in place by the EFL and Luton Town to ensure government guidelines are met and the safety of everyone involved is of the highest priority.

Season ticket holders will be able to stream all home and away fixtures using iFollow and 30 out of the 108 remaining Championship league games will be broadcast on Sky Sports.

Mick Harford, former player, manager and now chief recruitment officer and assistant-manager at Luton Town, said:

“The Luton Town fans are the best in the country and when they get behind the team at Kenilworth Road, they are more than a 12thman to us.

“We will miss every single one of them during these five remaining home matches. But for their safety as well as ours, we have to ask them for now that when we play, please stay away. Hopefully we can all be back together on a matchday soon, but only when it is safe to do so.

“In the meantime, we know every Luton Town supporter will be right behind us while watching on iFollow and we’ll be giving it everything for them to ensure we stay in the Championship.”

PC Steve Mason from Bedfordshire Police said:

“It may be tempting to visit the ground, but the best way to support the game is by watching at home and preventing the spread of the virus. This is a step in the right direction and we can all help to get the game we love back by continuing to follow government guidance.”

More details about how to watch Luton Town matches are available on the club’s website.
