Chelsea become the new owners of AFC Wimbledon`s ground, Kingsmeadow.
It’s understood that the club bought the stadium for a £4,000,000 fee.
Anyway the deal will not go through completely until the official seal of approval has been put on AFC Wimbledon`s development of a ‘new’ Plough Lane that will accommodate about 20,000 spectators.
AFC Wimbledon CEO, Erik Samuelson said about this:
“This is a major milestone for us. This deal is an essential part of the financing of the new stadium.”
Kingsmeadow is already used by Chelsea youth and ladies teams.
