Worldwide group to be welcomed at the club
AFC Wimbledon will host an event of a different kind on Saturday 9 July when an historic meeting of the Nerdfighters community takes place here.
“The first European Nerdfighter Convention” is scheduled to take place at the Cherry Red Records Stadium with the conference focusing on charity projects undertaken by this growing community.
Our picture above shows Nerdfighters coming together to support the Dons at Wembley, a bond with the club that has grown since John Green started sponsoring AFC Wimbledon.
John’s partnership with his brother Hank to form the vlogbrothers You Tube channel in 2007 led to the start of Nerdfighteria. His channel utilised video blogs as a way of the brothers communicating with each other from different parts of the USA. Since then, vlogbrothers has gained an international fanbase known collectively as “Nerdfighters” and has been involved in charity work.
The “Con4Awesome” one-day event at AFC Wimbledon will involve guest “YouTubers”, prizes, music and much more. For more information about joining in the fun, visit the website .
