Donate to club funds thanks to Betfair
AFC Wimbledon have teamed up with Betfair to offer supporters a chance of a refund if they do not wish to travel to Sunday’s FA Cup tie.
Those supporters who have already purchased a ticket can reclaim their money back if they have a change of heart – and Betfair have also promised to donate funds to the Dons Trust.
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, the online betting firm 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.
We wish to point out that the offices will not be open tomorrow, but supporters can post their name, address and contact details under the door at the stadium, along with their match ticket, and we will process the application.This can be done from 8.00 am on Sunday at the club.
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.
