AFC Wimbledon open new Plough Lane stadium

Thursday 5th November 2020

AFC Wimbledon have returned to their spiritual home at Plough Lane.

The League One side opened the gates to their new home with a 2-2 draw against Doncaster Rovers. The match was Wimbledon's first game in the London borough of Merton since the old Plough Lane was forced to close in 1991.

The new stadium is located around 200 yards away from the old Plough Lane, on the site of their old Wimbledon greyhound stadium.

The ground cost £32m to build and has an initial capacity of 9,300. This can be expanded up to 20,000, should demand require.
