Kingsmeadow (capacity 4,850)
AFC Wimbledon have played at Kingsmeadow (currently known as the Cherry Red Records Stadium) since they were founded in 2002. Since then, the club have bought the leasehold from Kingstonian, and recently sold it on to Chelsea for use by their women’s team and youth teams. AFC Wimbledon plan to move to a new stadium, back at Plough Lane, for the 2019/20 season.
The main stand is the Paul Strank Stand, which is named after a major benefactor of AFC Wimbledon. Despite the changing rooms being located in this stand, the dug outs are located opposite in the Rygas Stand.
Away fans visiting the Cherry Red Records Stadium are located mainly in the Rygas Stand , with a typical allocation of around 750. There an additional 100 seats available in the John Green stand should there be enough demand.
Parking options are reasonably limited around the stadium, but there is some street parking available. There are also 350 car parking spaces at the stadium which are free, but as you’d imagine these fill up really quickly so early arrival is advised.
