A fantastic offer from Korea Foods for Brentford tie

Young AFC Wimbledon and Brentford supporters have been offered an extra incentive to attend next Tuesday’s JPT clash between the two clubs with FREE entry for Under-18s.

Korea Foods, the New Malden-based official distributor of Nongshim in the UK, has links with both the Dons and Brentford and is therefore offering the initiative for young fans at the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie next Tuesday.

The match at Griffin Park has been designated as a 7.00 pm start to attract the next generation of football fans and Korea Foods will pay for free entry for ALL Wimbledon fans under the age of 18 and the first 250 junior Brentford supporters to queue at the New Road turnstiles.

This match pitches two teams that are eight miles apart into competitive action for the first time and the winners will take the first steps on a road that could lead to a final at Wembley.

Korea Foods have developed an excellent relationship with both clubs, most recently with Nongshim, Korea’s number one noodle manufacturer, sponsoring a stand at Wimbledon.

You can’t beat a game under floodlights, and with both teams wanting to get the ball down and play football, it should make for an enjoyable match.”  We considered a standard sponsorship, but we wanted to do something that might encourage more juniors to come to the match and help create a great atmosphere.  I couldn’t believe it when the draw came out and I knew that I had to be involved in the game. Dan Suh, Korea Foods’ Managing Director, said: “I am a Brentford fan and season ticket holder, but I have a close working relationship with AFC Wimbledon through the sponsorship deal we brokered with Nongshim to create the Nongshim Stand.

I would encourage as many supporters as possible to take advantage of this generous offer and come along to what should be a fantastic game of football.”  This is a great chance for any of our younger fans to watch a live game free of charge. Ivor Heller, Commercial Director at AFC Wimbledon, said “I would like to thank Korea Foods and in particular Dan Suh in providing this opportunity to our junior fans.

Mark Devlin, Chief Executive at Brentford FC, said “We would like to thank Dan and Korea Foods for their innovative idea and involvement in this fixture. The club is keen to encourage young fans to come to all fixtures and we brought our kick-off time forward for this match in the hope more families would attend.”

AFC Wimbledon fans will be housed in the Brook Road stand at Griffin Park – visiting supporters should turn up at the turnstiles and those under the age of 18 will be allowed in for FREE. There are 250 free tickets for Brentford supporters under the age of 18 in The Bill Axbey Stand, on the New Road side of the ground. Junior Brentford fans will be given free entry if they turn up to the New Road turnstiles and are one of the first 250 to pass through.-
