About the Bond
Thanks to the success of both tranches of the Plough Lane Bond, AFC Wimbledon has replaced all its external and secured debt.
Bondholders will be paid their interest annually, according to the Bond's terms and conditions. For any enquiries about interest payments and redemptions please contact us via email
The initial Bond raised more than £5.6m in funding, making it the largest football bond ever issued. Fans and well-wishers invested generously to facilitate the construction of the stadium and ensure Wimbledon moved back to the borough as a fan-owned club. The second tranche raised another £4.1m and closed in October 2022.
Since the club was reformed in 2002 as a reaction to the appalling move of Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes, AFC Wimbledon has been proud to be fan-owned by the Dons Trust - a one-member: one-vote democratic supporter organisation.
Against all the odds, the fan-owned club rose again from the depths of non-league football and into the Football League for the second time. It has award-winning community schemes, the charitable Wimbledon Foundation and a plethora of coaching and education courses.
The volunteers who promoted the Bond in early 2020 switched their focus immediately at the start of the COVID pandemic. They launched and continue to run the award-winning Dons Local Action Group. Since March 2020 DLAG has collected outside supermarkets, delivered millions of meals through food boxes and combated food poverty, digital poverty and furniture poverty across the borough.
You Brought the Dons Home, thankyou.
