AFC Wimbledon will be aiming for a first win of 2020 at the third time of asking on Saturday and tickets are still available to show your support for The Dons.
Mads Bech Sorensen (pictured) could make his debut after signing on loan last week from Brentford and a warm welcome to Wimbledon for the Danish Under-21 international will be greatly appreciated. We’ve had high demand to watch The Dons take on Peterborough this Saturday, so don’t miss out! Snap-up a terrace ticket in advance, or pay on the day at the turnstiles.
Ticket details and other match arrangements are summed up below:
All seat tickets are sold out and we only have a very limited number of tickets available for the popular Chemflow terrace. Buy in advance from our online ticket shop. Tickets are also still available for the Ry terrace (just £17). Buy online or on the day. Advance tickets can be purchased until 11.00 am on Saturday morning and they can be collected pre-match from the white booth in Jack Goodchild Way.
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) before 12 noon on Saturday.
Plough Lane Bond
After the Man of the Match presentation on Saturday there will be a meeting for the Plough Lane Bond scheme and a Q&A in the Main Bar. This Bond is going to be absolutely crucial to our chances of completing the stadium construction on time, so please come along to hear more about it and ask the team who have set it up any questions.
There’s an extensive interview with our long-serving kit man Robin Bedford, who talks about his first experience in the role, which involved spending a day with our former manager Dave Anderson! There’s also a first programme interview with Mads Bech Sorensen, which includes the Danish defender discussing his ambitions at Wimbledon and how his move to England came about.
Kick It Out campaign
The home match against Peterborough has been designated as our Day of Action for Kick It Out, which aims to stamp out discrimination of all forms. Players will be wearing Kick It Out T-shirts on Saturday and supporters from both clubs will be encouraged to raise banners on the referee’s whistle before the game. Footballers from the club’s Education and Football programme will also be holding up banners when the players walk out onto the pitch. See our previous article for more details.
For supporters planning to travel in by train to Saturday's game, please be aware that engineering work is scheduled for the weekend. The London Waterloo to Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Surbiton trains will be affected, meaning that no trains will serve Norbiton or New Malden at all.
If travelling from Waterloo, Vauxhall or Clapham Junction, there are services that run via Richmond and Twickenham to Kingston station. Otherwise, it is a bus replacement service from Clapham Junction through Earlsfield and Wimbledon to New Malden and Norbiton. For more information, visit the South Western Railway website.
Wimbledon supporters can get here in plenty of time and enjoy a drink or two pre-match as the bars will be open from 12 noon. There will be a wide selection of drinks available with all the usual lagers and real ales served. Supporters can watch the lunchtime kick-off on TV screens with Watford taking on Spurs (12.30 pm). We will also be showing the Newcastle versus Chelsea game (5.30 pm kick-off), but please note that this will not be shown in the Your Golf Travel Bar due to the meeting about the Plough Lane Bond scheme. You can watch it in the back bar or the Presidents Lounge. We will be pleased to welcome Peterborough supporters into the bar areas before the game.
Get your match day treats!
Young Dons supporters George Bond and Joe Tynan have made a big success of their new business venture! 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 game at Accrington
Wimbledon supporters have an opportunity on Saturday to buy tickets for the away game at Accrington Stanley (2 February). You can buy pre-match from the complimentary tickets window. 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.
