Sign-up for a great Blue and Yellow cause

Do your bit to boost the club budget

1 August 2017

New members are welcome to enjoy a wide range of unique behind-the-scenes benefits in 2017/18 by signing up for the Blue and Yellow Club.

Formed five years ago with the idea of raising funds directly for AFC Wimbledon's playing budget, the club meets several times throughout the season. On two of those occasions, the club has dinner with Neal Ardley and key members of his management team with members free to ask questions about preparing the squad for matches. In the past couple of years, the Blue and Yellow Club has had dinners with Terry Brown, Dave Bassett and Alan Reeves, plus an event at the House of Lords with special guest Terry Burton.

There are two ways to join either, as a 'Blue' member or a 'Yellow' member. The former works best for those who attend matches regularly and the latter for those who are only able to make the occasional game.

Over the past four seasons, the club has raised over £150,000, which goes directly into Neal's playing budget. A special collection also raised money for heart monitors so that AFC Wimbledon Sports Scientist Jason Moriarty could gain more accuracy for assessing the players' fitness.

The benefits are set out below. The idea is to give members unique benefits that have a low direct cost to the football club. Membership is £1,000 per year.

The 'Blue' membership package is for supporters who attend matches regularly and benefits include the following:

1. A pass to the President's Lounge for home matches.

2. Dinner with the Football management team and club CEO twice a season in a private room in a Wimbledon restaurant. (for the cost of the meal).

3. Access to a reserved table for the Blue and Yellow Club in hospitality before home matches (for the cost of the meal)

4. Invitation to the occasional Wimbledon celebrity dinner each season. (again for the cost of the meal).

5. Subscription to the 'Wombles Down Under' magazine, which is published every six weeks.

6. A visit to the training ground with Neal Ardley explaining how everything works.

7. Travel with other members to some away games with a meal in the away club's hospitality.

8. An invitation to an informal get together with some to the players in the week before the season starts.

The benefits of the 'Yellow' membership for those who don't attend matches regularly includes:

1. 'VIP' treatment for you and a guest at two home games a season. This would include a pre-match meal in the carvery plus access to the President's lounge and seats in the Directors' Box.

2. A visit to the training ground with Neal Ardley explaining how everything works.

3. Dinner with the Football management team and club CEO twice a season (for the cost of the meal).

4. Invitation to the occasional Wimbledon celebrity dinner each season. (again for the cost of the meal)

5. Subscription to the 'Wombles Down Under' magazine, which is published every six weeks.
