Match Details: Create a cracking atmosphere again with Oldham up next

Get your ticket to cheer on the Dons

20 April 2018

AFC Wimbledon will be aiming to take another big step towards League One survival on Saturday and your support can really help make a difference.

A very limited number of terrace tickets are available to watch the Dons against Oldham, as Neal Ardley's men seek to build on their impressive return of seven points from a possible nine.

The manager yesterday called for fans to play a big part once again after fantastic support in the last home game helped Wimbledon to victory against play-off chasers Charlton Athletic.

The picture above shows Wimbledon players celebrating Dean Parrett's last-gasp winner at Walsall, where 733 travelling Dons roared the team onto victory.

Below is a summary of ticket availability and other information ahead of the game:

Tickets

Wimbledon supporters have snapped up tickets to attend the penultimate home match of 2017/18 and we therefore only have availability in the RyGas terrace. We advise you to buy soon because the game might be sold out tomorrow. Book from our online ticket shop and you can collect pre-match from the white booth in Jack Goodchild Way.

Bars

These will be open from 12 noon on Saturday with a wide selection of drinks to choose from and televised football to watch before Wimbledon's match.

Drinks available include a fine selection of real ales and these are as follows:

Your Golf Travel Bar

Plough Lane Ale

Wimbledon Windmill

Adnams Broadside

Back Bar

Plough Lane Ale

Wimbledon Common

Wimbledon Windmill

Heineken, Fosters, and Kronenberg will also be served at the bars.

The back bar will close at 6.15 pm (half-time of FA Cup match between Spurs and Man United) due to a function, but the other bars will remain open until 9.00 pm. We will be pleased to welcome Oldham supporters into the bar areas.

AFC Wimbledon Foundation Day

Our Foundation will be celebrating its fantastic work in the community by hosting several events at Saturday's game.

A range of activities pre-match will highlight the work of the Foundation, including a Walking Football exhibition match at the David Weir Athletics Stadium (on the 3G pitches), from 12 noon until 1.30 pm. Dons fans can also pop along for a go at the inflatable shoot-out, where Wimbledon players will be signing autographs, and our Foundation staff will be available to talk about their work. Of course, Haydon the Womble will also be joining in the fun!

As part of the celebration, our Foundation will also welcome participants from schools programmes, Wimbledon Park Development Centre, and disability programmes. Young footballers from Cleves School will be presented with the South of England Kids Cup at half-time. There will be a bucket collection on the day with all funds donated to the Foundation. See our previous article for more information, including how to donate online.

Programme

There's an in-depth player interview with Egli Kaja about his breakthrough season at AFC Wimbledon, which has included 23 appearances for the Dons in all competitions. A double-page report on the AFC Wimbledon Volunteers' Away Day is also included, plus all the usual features about your club. The programme is available at its usual price of £3.

Parking

This will be limited tomorrow due to an athletics event taking place at the nearby Kingsmeadow Athletics Centre. Parking will therefore be restricted in the grass car park, so it's advisable to arrive early if you want to get a place.

ST Returns

If you are a Season Ticket holder not planning to attend Saturday's match against Oldham, we would be very grateful if you could let us know.

We've had high demand to attend Wimbledon's penultimate home match of 2017/18 with a waiting list for seat tickets. Your return will allow us to make your ticket available to other fans and therefore get more support for your team for an important match.

Please e-mail info@afcwimbledon.co.uk  as soon as possible.
