Information for supporters heading to AFC Wimbledon tomorrow...
What is the ground like?
Kingsmeadow, or the Cherry Red Records Stadium as it is known nowadays, is home to AFC Wimbledon and Kingstonian after the Dons took over the lease from the non-league side.
The Club have been given planning permission to build a new stadium on the site of the Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium. The former Greyhound track is very close to the former location of the old Plough Lane Wimbledon football ground. The new stadium would have an initial capacity of 11,000 seats.
Away fans are housed in the Rygas Stand Terrace at one side of the pitch with a small number of seats made available in the new John Green Stand, adjacent to the East Terrace.
Please note that the away terrace is not accessible by going through the main entrance into the stadium car park. Away fans should instead continue going along Kingston Road (keeping the main entrance on the right) and take the next right into Jack Goodchild Way.
There is not much near to the ground, with a number of pubs closing in recent years.
One option is to go into Kingston or New Malden town centres and then get a bus to the ground (or a long walk!). The 131 bus passes the ground and goes through both town centres. If in Kingston, catch a bus heading to Tooting Broadway; if in New Malden, catch a bus heading to Kingston.
From the M25 Junction 9, take the A244 before taking the A3 northbound into London.
At the exit for New Malden/Worcester Park, turn off and take the left into Malden Road (A2043) towards Kingston. Follow this to the next roundabout. Take the first exit into Kingston Road (A2043 still) and Kingsmeadow is one mile on the left.
The nearest railway station to the ground is Norbiton, which is about a 15 minute walk away. The station is served by trains from London Waterloo via Clapham Junction and Wimbledon.
