Club fundraiser provides unique behind-the-scenes access

Blue & Yellow Club open to new members for the 2019/20 season

31 July 2019

Since its inception seven years ago, The Blue & Yellow Club has raised almost £250,000 with members enjoying a range of unique benefits including meetings with Wally and Glyn.

The club raises funds for the playing budget with members paying an annual fee for events that provide minimal costs for AFC Wimbledon.

It meets several times a season and two of those occasions are dinners with Wally and Glyn in a private room in a restaurant in Wimbledon. There is also a trip to the training ground and the club’s Academy, as well as an informal evening, where members can meet some of the players.

There are two ways to join; 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.

Below are quotes from current members:

Roger Caley: “Since becoming a member of the Blue and Yellow Club five years ago, I have acquired an extended circle of good friends who share my passion for this unique football club that I’ve supported all my life.”

Margaret Hung: “If you're interested in how the club is run and want to hear some inside information, the Blue and Yellow Club is for you.  I love meeting the players at our evening with them and I always enjoy meeting the manager over dinner and learning the reasons for some of his decisions. Training ground trips are really informative and give valuable insights into the way games are set up, so I can watch matches with a more informed eye. I also like sitting with other Club members at matchday hospitality events; it's a way of making more friends.”

David Collins: “After moving to Wales I continued supporting the Dons remotely but felt increasingly detached. I wanted to help by more than just attending the occasional game and buying merchandise, so the Blue and Yellow Club was ideal for me. I can feel I'm contributing to the Dons' successes and the club has given me a new group of fellow supporters to meet up with.”

Harry Galley: “One of the many opportunities that ‘Blue and Yellow’ members benefit from is our annual visit to the training ground for a ‘behind the scenes’ look at how the manager and his staff prepare the team for the next match. The last visit featured a brilliant one hour video-lecture by our amazing and irrepressible goalkeeping coach, Ashley Bayes. It was highly entertaining, very funny and a unique insight into how ‘Bayzo’ works with our goalkeepers on a daily basis.”

Chris Root: “As Wimbledon fans we are members of a very special family. The Blue and Yellow club extends this ethos by more closely connecting the fans with the staff, team and players, and providing the opportunity to share your passion with a highly sociable and interesting bunch of like-minded friends.” 

There are two options for 2019/20; ‘Blue’ membership and ‘Yellow’ membership.

The ‘Blue’ membership package is for supporters who attend matches regularly. Benefits are as follows:

  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 is a Wimbledon restaurant. (for the cost of the meal)
  3. Access to reserved table for the Blue and Yellow Club in the carvery 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 6 weeks.
  6. A visit to the training ground with Wally and Glyn explaining how everything works.
  7. A visit to the Academy explaining how that works with all the different teams.
  8. Travel with other members to some away games with a meal in the away club’s hospitality.
  9. An invitation to an informal get together with some of the players.

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