AFC Wimbledon will be aiming to round off 2018 on a high by securing a third successive victory and tickets are available to show your support for Wally Downes’s men.
A Blackpool side currently flying high in eighth spot are the opponents, but there’s plenty of incentive for Wimbledon to grind out a win as it could move the Dons out of the League One relegation zone.
Below is a summary of ticket availability and other match details ahead of the game.
All seat tickets are sold out and so too is the Chemflow End, but we do still have availability for the RyGas terrace. You can order from our online ticket shop until 11.00 am tomorrow morning and collect pre-match from the white booth in Jack Goodchild Way. Please note that there had been a problem with our online ticket system, but this has now been rectified. Tickets for the RyGas terrace will be available on the day.
These will be open from 12 noon with a wide selection of drinks available, including a variety of real ales.
Televised football will be shown in the bars before and after Wimbledon versus Blackpool. First up, it’s the Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic from 12.30 pm and later on we will be showing the Premier League match between Liverpool and Arsenal (5.30 pm kick-off).
The Wimbledon Brewery pop-up bar will be well stocked with Pale Ale, Wimbledon Gold lager and bottled soft drinks will also be available to purchase. The Your Golf Travel Bar (main bar) will also be open as usual, selling drinks including Plough Lane Ale.
Blackpool supporters will be welcome in our bar areas before the game.
Your matchday programme for Blackpool is one well worth adding to your collection as it features an in-depth interview with Wally Downes, who recalls his difficult early days as a coach and how it shaped his career. Wally also talked in his interview about what his main challenges are in his new role, as he seeks to build on a positive start to life as AFC Wimbledon manager. As well as all the usual programme features and updates, there’s a report on the Junior Dons Christmas party, including pictures of first-teamers capturing the festive spirit!
Dons Trust Kiosk
Dons Trust members and people interested in the work of the Trust are welcome to visit the Dons Trust kiosk before the match. Come and ask board members Colin Dipple, Cormac van der Hoeven and incoming board member Rob Crane about the work of the board. You can also join the Trust or renew your membership at the kiosk, sign up to the Dons Draw (our regular monthly lottery) or donate loose change, foreign currency or items for AFCbay (our online auction). Please note that we no longer collect printer cartridges.
The club shop will be open before the match (11.00 am - 2.45 pm) and after the game against Blackpool (from 5 pm to 5.30 pm).
Tickets for away games
We will be selling tickets to Wimbledon supporters for our fixture on New Year’s Day at Fratton Park, against the League leaders Portsmouth. Tickets for our FA Cup third round tie at Fleetwood, on January 5, will also be on sale to Dons fans. These will be available, before or after the match, from the complimentary tickets window.
