AFC Wimbledon will on Saturday be seeking vital League One points in the battle to steer clear of the drop zone and tickets are available to cheer on The Dons.
Glyn’s boys have lost just three league games at home this season and your support can help Wimbledon to secure another important win at the Cherry Red Records Stadium tomorrow.
Below is a summary of ticket availability and other match arrangements ahead of the game.
All seat tickets and standing tickets for the Chemflow terrace are sold out. However, we do still have availability for the Ry terrace (just £17 for adults). You can either buy in advance from our online ticket shop until 11.00 am on Saturday morning (collection from the white ticket booth, next to the DT Kiosk), or pay on the day.
Please let us know if you are an ST holder not planning to attend this game. It will enable us to make your ticket available to get more support for The Dons. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on the club answer machine (020 8547 3528).
These will be open from 12 noon with a wide selection of drinks available, including real ales. Wimbledon supporters can get here early and watch the televised lunchtime match between Chelsea and Spurs on TV screens in the bars. Fans can also stay on after the game and watch Leicester City v Man City on TV. Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome Blackpool supporters into the bar areas. As this game is all-ticket for Blackpool fans, Wimbledon supporters will need to have their match tickets ready to gain admittance to the bars.
The pop-up bar (based in the Your Golf Travel Bar) will be open from 1.45 pm, serving only pre-poured pints. The drinks available will be as follows: Wimbledon Pale Ale, Wimbledon Lager, Budweiser, Stella Artois. The Your Golf Travel Bar will serve the following real ales: Plough Lane Ale, Copper Leaf Ale, SW19 Blonde Ale. You can choose from the following ales in the back bar: Killcat Pale Ale, Plough Lane Ale, SW19 Blonde.
Plough Lane Bond
It’s been a tremendous effort by the Plough Lane Bond organising team and supporters with over £5.2 million raised so far. You can chat to members of the organising team by the Dons Trust kiosk before the game. Alternatively, you can talk to them after the match in the back bar, or in the Your Golf Travel Bar (following the Man of the Match presentation). You can e-mail email@example.com to arrange a specific time to chat. Play your part in getting us back to our spiritual home!
AFC Wimbledon will tomorrow be raising funds for Merton Giving and we are delighted to be involved with a fantastic community initiative. Merton Giving, a charitable partnership between Merton Chamber of Commerce and Merton Voluntary Services Council and supported by Merton Council, aims to address inequality by connecting businesses with charities. Bucket collections will be held at Saturday's game with volunteers located around the stadium, so please give whatever you can manage to a great cause. See our previous article for more information about Merton Giving.
The matchday programme is packed with news, features, and interviews about our club. There’s an extensive interview with Joe Pigott, who talks about the trials and tribulations of making his way back into the professional game after a spell in non league with Maidstone United. Our striker recently passed the 100-mark for Wimbledon appearances and he scored his first Dons goal – on his debut – against Blackpool just over two years ago. There’s also an interview with Paul Kalambayi, as he makes his way back to action after two-and-a-half months out injured.
Women at the Game event
There will be 'Dons debuts' on Saturday for a group of local women who have never previously attended a football match before. Ladies from the Saheli and Milaap Centre groups in Kingston will take in the match day experience at AFC Wimbledon. We’ve already given them a ‘taster’ of what to expect a few weeks ago when they were given a tour of the stadium and watched a presentation all about our unique club. This event has been organised by the Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Working Group, set up by The Dons Trust and led by DT Board member Jane Lonsdale MBE. Take a look at our full story about this initiative.
Get your match day treats!
Young Dons supporters George Bond and Joe Tynan have made a big success of their business venture and they earned record sales at the last Saturday home match! Their sweet stall will once again be open before Saturday’s game (from 1.00 pm until close to kick-off, based close to the back bar/entrance to the Chemflow terrace). Don’t leave it too late to get your match day treats! Funds will be donated towards the club.
Tickets for away games
Wimbledon supporters have an opportunity to buy tickets for the away games at Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers. You can buy tickets for both games from the complimentary tickets window before the game and for a short time afterwards. Places on the supporters’ coach can also be booked.
Dons Trust Stall
Supporters are welcome to find out more about the DT at an important time for the club by popping into the stall before the game.
