John Berylson’s legacy at Millwall
Millwall enjoys – rightly or wrongly – one of the most notorious reputations in the world of football.
But what John Berylson did during his tenure as chairman of the club was nothing short of sensational.
By working with the local community and families, he changed and continues to change the perception of his club.
Berylson cared deeply for the fans, the players and the area of south London he knew like the back of his hand.
EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch said: “The EFL is deeply saddened to hear of John Berylson’s tragic death and our heartfelt condolences go out to John’s family, friends and everyone associated with Millwall Football Club.”
“Since 2006, John has been a well-loved owner and CEO of Millwall who has given us unwavering support and responsibility throughout that time. He will be sorely missed.”
