Club statement: antisocial behaviour

1 October 2021

It has taken AFC Wimbledon over 30 years to return to our beloved home.

Throughout this time, the Club has etched its name into footballing folklore, with one of the greatest sporting stories ever to be played out.

The Club would not be in this position, were it not for its passionate fans and dedicated volunteers, and for this, there will always be eternal gratitude.

Fans should rightly be celebrating our return home and your excitement is even more understandable, given the difficult times we have all faced over the past 18 months. However, we would like to remind fans of their responsibilities.

The Club is currently assisting the Met Police in their investigation of a number of individuals who have been involved in conduct that falls well below the standards we expect, and as set out in the ground regulations. The Club have already had instances of racist, homophobic and aggressive behaviour within our home sections and this kind of anti-social and inappropriate behaviour cannot, and will not be tolerated. The Club will not hesitate to use the strongest sanctions possible against anyone found guilty of such behaviour.

Whilst we are currently dealing with a number of investigations, the best and most effective way for us to tackle this kind of behaviour is to know about it as it is happening, so we would like to remind fans that should they receive or witness any kind of abusive, discriminatory or anti social behaviour on a matchday, to immediately contact stadium security on 07881468833.  You can text or call that number.

Should you wish to report something following a match please e-mail security@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk.  This new email ensures your report is dealt with quickly and confidentially.

We would also like to add that pitch incursions can lead to the Club being reprimanded and fined, so we would kindly ask that fans refrain from doing so, it could lead to a ban. We are all ambassadors of the Club and we encourage everyone to respect the values that AFC Wimbledon represents.
