Councillor Mike O'Brien, of Medway Council, said: "We have unfortunately been left with no alternative but to issue a prohibition notice on the game preventing supporters from attending."
The match between Gillingham and Swindon is due to be played on April 21.
He said the prohibition order was as a result of a dispute between Gillingham FC and Kent Police about costs and the number of officers needed to police the match.
