AFC Wimbledon: All Together Now
Sun 19th September 2021, 4-5pm
In conversation with the broadcaster Mark Clemmit
Baillie Gifford Tent
From 2002 until 2019 Erik Samuelson was finance director and then CEO of AFC Wimbledon. He tells the extraordinary inside story of how the most undervalued people in football – the fans – defied the odds to take their club back to the Football League and return home.
The authorities said they shouldn't try. People in football said it couldn't be done. Robbed of their beloved club, Wimbledon FC, they started again. They had absolutely nothing – no experience of running a club, no players, no manager, nowhere to play.
But within nine years they re-formed their team as AFC Wimbledon, rebuilt its community work, won five promotions and fought their way back into the top tiers of the game. En route, they broke records, changed the rules of football and were the subject of Prime Minister's Questions. And now they're back in their spiritual home, Wimbledon, in a brand new stadium in Plough Lane.
