Ticket amnesty: Dons boss Neal Ardley drops his ticket in the box, but of course he does not need one anyway
AFC Wimbledon fans who have a change of heart and decide to boycott Sunday’s controversial FA Cup tie at Stadium mk, can get their ticket refunded by Betfair.
The gesture comes as the long-suffering fans are faced with a “Do you, don’t you” dilemma over attending the second round fixture they hoped would never take place.
Dons boss Neil Ardley said: “Everyone connected to this great club knows what an emotive issue it is for us and our supporters.
"We’re grateful to Betfair for taking some of the pressure off what will be a very tough decision. I’
"m sure our fans will do what’s best for both themselves and the club.”
Supporters who have purchased tickets and are still unsure about travelling to the game have now been given the option by Betfair to choose not to attend, while ensuring that Wimbledon still receive the ticket money.
And for every ticket refunded, Betfair will go one step further and match the rebate with an identical donation to the Dons Trust.
A back-of-shirt sponsorship deal for the match also means that Betfair will contribute further funds to the Dons.
To claim their refund, fans can hand in their match ticket at an Amnesty Box located at the Kingsmeadow box office before 3pm on December 1 - the offer is restricted to the first 250 tickets only.
