Join us for community event in Wimbledon
AFC Wimbledon will once again have a presence at the launch of Winter Wonderland in Wimbledon town centre with players, management and club staff in attendance.
As part of the annual festive tradition in the heart of Wimbledon, we will be spreading the word about our great club on Sunday 27 November, thanks to our valuable partnership with Centre Court Shopping Centre.
Following the success of our pop-up shop before Wembley in May, we will also be selling AFC Wimbledon merchandise inside the Centre Court Shopping Centre.
A mini foot pool tournament (kicking balls rather than using cues) will also be staged inside, plus there will be dazzling finale to the event with fireworks launched from the Centre Court Roof at 5.30 pm.
AFC Wimbledon Commercial Manager Ivor Heller said: “Centre Court Shopping have been great to us at AFC Wimbledon, helping us to host pop-up shops and stage kit launches. Centre Court have given us these opportunities and it is great for us as a club to be able to support Winter Wonderland. We’ve had a long tradition of being involved in the event and I am delighted that we have resurrected this after a short break.”
Suzy Wood, Centre Director at Centre Court, said: “It is great to see so many local key organisations join together to celebrate Christmas. Centre Court Shopping Centre is the hub of Wimbledon so we think it is extremely important to bring something fun and exciting to the centre each year for staff, shoppers and local businesses. It is great to have AFC Wimbledon at Winter Wonderland this year, celebrating what has been such a great year for the club.”
