Plough Lane (capacity 9,300)
After 29 years away, AFC Wimbledon are back at their spiritual home of Plough Lane, having played elsewhere, including most recently Kingsmeadow. The 9,300 capacity stadium, which was partially funded from fans, also has the potential to be expanded to 20,000 if it needs to in the future.
The South Stand is standing only to generate that famous atmosphere. The bobbly pitch of old is now a state of the art playing surface, and the away changing rooms no longer have cold showers only. There is also a nod to the past as the stadium houses the original Plough Lane gates.
Away fans visiting Plough Lane will be housed in the North Stand, though a typical visitor allocation has not yet been confirmed.
Car parking at the stadium is extremely limited and there is no street parking due to Controlled Parking Zones. However, the club say the stadium is very well connected to most public transport in London, with train stations, tube stations, and bus stops on the doorstep.
We’ve compiled a list of car parks, below, near to Plough Lane for hassle free parking while you’re at the match.
