Match Details: Dons v Brentford

Important information about tonight's game

8 August 2017

Neal Ardley’s men will tonight be very grateful for your support as they bid for a place in the second round of the Carabao Cup and tickets are still available to cheer on the Dons.

For tonight’s match against Brentford (7.45 pm kick-off), we advise setting out for the ground as early as you possibly can with Norbiton rail station closed (see later for more information). Emergency gas works in the vicinity of the Cherry Red Records Stadium is also being carried out, for those planning to travel in by car.

With the bars open from 5.00 pm tonight, why not get here early and sample our new Wimbledon 1889 Lager!?

Below is a summary of match arrangements for tonight: 


Tickets are available in advance up until 3.45 pm this afternoon. You can also pay on the night.

Advance tickets can be collected pre-match from the white booth in Jack Goodchild Way. Visit our online ticket shop to order tickets now.


There will be reduced catering facilities for Dons fans tonight.

With Brentford supporters having been allocated all of the RyGas Stand, the catering unit at the corner of this terrace and the Chemflow terrace will only be accessible to away supporters. Wimbledon fans in the Paul Strank and Chemflow terrace will only be able to access the catering unit at the corner of these two sections.

As per usual, the food trailer in the car park will be open before and after the game. For Dons supporters in the Chemflow terrace and Paul Strank Stand, it may therefore be advisable to buy food outside the ground before the game.


With no trains stopping at Norbiton station from now until 28 August 2017, we are advising supporters to allow extra time to travel to the game.

Supporters travelling in by train should use alternative nearby stations, including Kingston and New Malden, and then either walk or get a bus. The 131 bus (from Kingston bus station, next to train station) or from New Malden roundabout (by the Fountains Pub) stops right outside the ground. It is about a 20-25 minute walk from both train stations to the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

There will be a direct but limited service to New Malden from Waterloo, via Clapham Junction. Trains will also be running to Kingston, but less frequently than normal.

For a full timetable of trains during the spell from 5-28 August, visit the South West Trains website .Visit the Transport for London website for more travel advice.


Emergency gas works are currently going on in the vicinity of the Cherry Red Records Stadium and those driving here should therefore allow plenty of time to get here.


This will be very limited tonight. If you are planning to park in local residential areas, please be considerate when doing so.
