Claim a refund and donate money to club funds
AFC Wimbledon supporters who decide not to travel to Sunday’s FA Cup tie after purchasing a ticket can reclaim their money back from Betfair and make a donation to the club at the same time.
The online betting firm have made the offer to fans still undecided over the “Do You, Don’t You” dilemma as regards attending the fixture at Milton Keynes (the picture above shows Wimbledon favourite Dickie Guy and AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley).
Supporters who have purchased tickets and are still unsure about travelling to the game have now been given the option by Betfair to choose not to attend, while ensuring that Wimbledon still receive the ticket money.
For every ticket refunded, Betfair will go one step further and match the rebate with an identical donation to the Dons Trust.
A back-of-shirt sponsorship deal for the match also means that Betfair will contribute further funds to AFC Wimbledon.
To claim their refund, fans can hand in their match ticket along with completed form (available from the Cherry Red Records Ticket Office) to the Betfair Amnesty Box located in the Cherry Red Records Stadium Box Office before 3.00 pm on Saturday, 1 December.
AFC Wimbledon Manager Neil Ardley said: “Everyone connected to this great club knows what an emotive issue it is for us and our supporters. We’re grateful to Betfair for taking some of the pressure of what will be a very tough decision. I’m sure our fans will do what’s best for both themselves and the club.”
Betfair’s Andy Holmes added: “After what Wimbledon supporters have been through we don’t think that it’s right for these supporters to fork out if they don’t plan to attend the match. We’ve left the decision in their hands.”
Please note that the supporter refund is restricted to the first 250 fans only.
