AFC Wimbledon Are Coming Home

AFC Wimbledon Are Coming Home

Posted by Lady Wimbledon | 16 December 2017 | Events & Invites, Magazine, What's On

AFC Wimbledon have been granted permission to start building work on a new stadium back at their spiritual home of Plough Lane.

The Dons played at Plough Lane between 1912 and 1991 before moving to groundshare with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park then Kingsmeadow.

Planning permission for an 11,000-20,000 seater stadium was granted in December 2015, and Wimbledon have now got the go-ahead to start building work.

Not only will there be a football stadium on site, there will also be 602 new homes, retail space and a squash and fitness club.

AFC Wimbledon chief executive Erik Samuelson said: “Everyone in football knows the story of how AFC Wimbledon came into being. A group of fans started with nothing; no ground, no team, no manager, no players and no kit.

“Now, 15 years later, we’ve taken a giant step towards going home to Merton, in a new stadium and as a Football League club. This is a momentous day for us. Everybody who has helped the club to reach this point must be very proud.”

AFC Wimbledon are hoping to have the £25million stadium ready for the 2019-20 season.
