A team-up with Paper Towns

10 August 2015

Exclusive screening of film coming up this Sunday

There was a match sponsorship deal with a difference on Saturday as AFC Wimbledon teamed up with Paper Towns for the Plymouth game.

Our game on Saturday was officially sponsored by Paper Towns as part of an innovative idea which builds upon the club’s links with US author John Green’s upcoming film.

Paper Towns, based on John Green’s novel of the same name, is out in UK and Irish cinemas on 17 August. The film is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbour Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears--leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship - and true love.

John Green, author of number one New York Times Best Seller and film smash-hit "The Fault in Our Stars", and his brother have gained a worldwide audience for their video blogs on YouTube channel VlogBrothers, with their fans named Nerdfighters.

Saturday’s match sponsorship by Paper Towns extended the club’s ties with Green; his first connection with the club started back in 2014 with a back-of-shorts sponsorship deal that resulted in the DFTBA (Don’t Forget To Be Awesome) Nerdfighters motto featuring on team kits. Now Green has decided to strengthen his relationship with the club by sponsoring what was previously known as the North Stand.

AFC Wimbledon Commercial Director Ivor Heller said: “Since John joined us at AFC Wimbledon his influence has grown and grown. The positive effect of having John on board has been immense. Our name was well known around the world before John. Now we have many more fans all over the world, thanks to John.”

Paper Towns is directed by Jake Schreier (Robot & Frank), and stars Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) as Quentin alongside Cara Delevingne (The Face of an Angel) as Margo. Produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
