We’re delighted to announce that AFC Wimbledon, Merton Council and Galliard Homes have today signed the Section 106 agreement that clears the way for our new stadium.
This is another major milestone towards the rightful return of Wimbledon’s football club to Wimbledon and represents the result of months of hard work to finalise a complex deal.
The signing means work can now start on the stadium, as well as the 602 new homes, retail space and squash and fitness club that make up the rest of the development.
On behalf of all our members and Wimbledon fans everywhere, the Dons Trust Board would like to express our thanks to all of the many people who have helped the club get this far on the journey.
There are too many who have helped to name them all, but in particular the support of Merton Council, the tireless efforts of Erik Samuelson and the tremendous efforts of the Bring The Dons Home campaign team have been pivotal.
Thank you to all Trust members for your support and patience during this process. Our first game on our home turf in more than 25 years is getting closer.
Check for further updates on the club website.
Congratulations to Erik and all on the Dons Trust Board for all your efforts over so many years. We can only imagine how frustrating and infuriating it has been for you so on behalf of all of us, THANK YOU! Here’s to our next amazing chapter.
