The car was taken out of service when it was damaged after the match on 7 July in Borough High Street, London.
More than £10,000 was raised through a crowdfunding page to pay for repairs.
The four defendants are due to appear at Camberwell Magistrates' Court on 22 November.
A JustGiving page set up by Millwall Supporters' Club raised twice its target of £5,000 after photos of the damaged car were shared across social media.
However, a Skoda dealership offered to fix the car for free, so the donations were instead put towards restoring an old ambulance, London Ambulance Service (LAS) said.
The four people facing charges are:
Perry Kangyue Jian, 26, from Poplar, London
Larissa Bell, 21, from East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire
James Elton, 27, from West Hampstead, London
Scott Dennett, 25, from Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire
