About this experience
It's been called the 'Greatest Story In Football' - Wimbledon's football club returning to their spiritual home after an absence of 30 years and another meteoric rise through the leagues. You can now experience an exclusive behind the scenes tour of AFC Wimbledon's brand new stadium on Plough Lane.
You'll be guided by one of our experienced hosts, all Wimbledon fans of course, who will regail you with stories old and new, fascinating facts about the stadium and their own experiences of following (and in some cases working for) the Dons.
Lasting approximately one hour, the tours start at the club shop, before progressing into the changing rooms, players' tunnel, and dugouts, providing a taste of what a matchday is really like at AFC Wimbledon. After moving pitch side, our tour guides will take you in front of the Cappagh (West Stand), before progressing to the South London Movers Stand and taking you towards the investor wall which includes the names of all those who contributed to the stadium crowdfunding campaign.
Your tour will then end on a high with a visit to 'The Greatest Story' exhibition.
The exhibition is the home of a unique range of football memorabilia, including medals, trophies, and photos from the remarkable rise through the leagues in the 1980s, FA Cup glory in 1988, our reformation as AFC Wimbledon.
We have a team of knowledgeable hosts, including:
Erik needs no introduction to Dons fans, having been CEO of AFC Wimbledon from 2007 until 2019. It's not an understatement to say that the move back home would probably not have happened without him.
Ray has been a Wimbledon fan since 1971 with a keen interest in club history, including writing for a variety of Dons fanzines and, since 2002, is a regular contributor to the official AFC Wimbledon Matchday Magazine.
Stuart has been a Wimbledon fan since 1990 and watched from the terraces at Plough Lane, Selhurst Park and Kingsmeadow, before completing the journey back to Plough Lane. He is also a matchday volunteer, leading the clubs '9yrs'TV shows for home games, which are shown on the clubs official Facebook and YouTube channels. Stuart also co-hosts the unofficial 9yrspodcast, which is now in its seventh season having racked up over 300 episodes.
Pat qualified as a tour guide in 2018 and has been a Wimbledon fan since 1996. Passionate about story telling - whether it be stories of our past struggles and achievements, or the here and now.
Roger has been watching the Dons since the Leeds United cup replay in 1975, followed them at old Plough Lane, Selhurst Park and Kingsmeadow and is now a season ticket holder in the west stand. As well as being part of the stadium tour guide team, he also leads regular history walks in London and does voluntary work for two small charities.
