AFC Wimbledon reveals stadium vision

UK Football League 2 club, AFC Wimbledon has published its vision to return to Greater Wimbledon.

The Dons’ aspirations to redevelop the Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium centre around a plan to create a 22,000 capacity stadium, which will host sporting and non-sporting events for the wider community. Initially, the redevelopment will deliver a multi-purpose facility with a capacity for 12,000, which AFC Wimbledon can expand over time. The stadium will be part of a larger development, which will help fund the stadium construction.

In the past ten years AFC Wimbledon has gone from public trials on Wimbledon Common to achieve five promotions, culminating in a play-off victory in May 2011 that returned the name Wimbledon to the Football League. The ambition to move back to Greater Wimbledon has never been stronger for The Dons Trust (the not-for-profit company which owns the club) and the fans, who recently reaffirmed their desire to return to the Borough.

The Dons’ vision has been articulated in the club’s response to the London Borough of Merton’s ‘call for sites’ – which requested anyone interested in developing a land site in Merton to set out their ideas in writing to the Council.

“This is an important step in a journey we started some years ago,” says AFC Wimbledon chief executive Erik Samuelson. “We have a long way to go and many major hurdles to clear but we want to build a stadium that is embedded in the community and operate it in an inclusive way. To realise that ambition, we have developed a cohesive and well thought through strategy. AFC Wimbledon is proud of its prudent financial management, supporter participation, active volunteering and community engagement. All of this follows from our model of fan ownership. We are very grateful to Merton Council who have provided strong support for our aims and who have demonstrated over the last few months that they understand our needs and share our vision for the next big step in our growth.”

The council will now assess all responses received and work with local residents and landowners, and other interested parties, to find the best solution to continue the sporting legacy on the Wimbledon greyhound site.
