Where else can you watch football at reasonable prices, get a decent pint before the match and during half time, still stand on the terraces and watch the team win and be so close to the action.
This what footnall was meant to be. Long live AFC Wimbledon and their ethos of being a fan's club.
This is the home of Kingstonian FC and AFC Wimbledon. Both are non-league clubs with fine traditions and rather large support for non league football on the outskirts of London.
The stadium, some 15 years old or so, was created when Kingstonian moved from the Richmond Road home. It is located in Norbition, which is in between Kingston upon thames and New Malden.
Kingstonian won the FA throphy twice in a row in the days when over 1,000 fans turned out at Kingsmeadow to cheer the K's on. Those glory days of Geoff Chapple have since passed and the fan base has dwindled.
Since then the stadium has become the home of the breakaway AFC Wimbledon. The Fan's club as they are known for being owned and run by its supporter's trust recently bought the stadium from the previous Kingstonian chairman to save their own home ground and the home ground of the K's.
Wimbledon currently play in the Ryman Premier Division with home tickets costing £11 for adults, £6 for consession and a quid for kids.
Kingstonian play in the Ryman first division to much smaller crowds at cheaper prices.
This is a lovely day out to watch fooball on the terraces as it should be. I couldn't reccommend it higher, but do wrap up warm as it is cold on the terraces.
The nearest station is Norbition. The 131, K5 and X26 buses serve the stadium during the day and the infamous N87 can be caught to Traflager Square at night.
The theater of dreams. AFC Wimbledon is football at its finest and purest form. There are worse places to be at on a Saturday afternoon.
There is simply no better place to watch football than at AFC Wimbledon. Very nice ground, Fantastic Team, Excellent Manager, The best fans in the world, The 92nd Highest Average Attendance in England and the best run club in non-league football. What else could you want?
Quailty pitch. Great place to have a pint on the stands. Exactly what football should be. Fan based club makes it very freindly and community orientated. Shame many premier league teams are loosing this!
