An awesome stand for John

15 July 2015

Seated area will be sponsored by our American friend

AFC Wimbledon are delighted to announce that we have a new sponsor for our North Stand and it will now be known as "The John Green Stand".

John Green’s 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 our kits.

American author John, who has gained a worldwide audience for his video blogs on You Tube, has now decided to strengthen his relationship with the club by sponsoring the North Stand.

John said: “I am so excited to be able to support this great fans-owned club by sponsoring the North Stand. I realise that I probably just seem like a crazy American author, but I assure you that I am in fact a crazy American author who also loves AFC Wimbledon.”

Commercial Director Ivor Heller said. “Since John first became involved with us at AFC Wimbledon he has been a hugely positive influence on all of us. We are very grateful to John for his generous support of us.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to wish John every success with the launch of his second film, Paper Towns. I have seen the trailer and I can recommend it as a must see film.”

John Green is the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars. He also creates videoblogs posted to YouTube which have had over 500 million views, making his channel one of the most popular in online history.
