London Broncos will ground-share with AFC Wimbledon at Plough Lane this season

London Broncos’ say their desire to work with AFC Wimbledon is “enormous” over a potential groundshare of Plough Lane.

The Broncos met with the Dons Trust last night, with the Trust setting a date of March 31 for their members to vote on a potential groundshare.

A club statement read: “As we have done throughout this process we will continue to allow the Dons to lead the media output as a matter of courtesy to their football club and supporters.

“What can be said is that following recent meetings, including a visit to the stadium by our captain Will Lovell to meet Dons Trust co-chairman Xavier Wiggins, the London Broncos’ desire to work with AFC Wimbledon and the Dons Trust is enormous and we continue to be impressed by what we learn about them as a community sports club.

“We hope, of course, that Dons supporters will embrace our interest to play our home games at Plough Lane but also to form a lasting partnership with a very impressive club on and off the field.”

The Broncos say they will offer a further update to their supporters following the Dons Trust’s fan vote.

  1. Devastated as a Broncos fan they are leaving Trailfinders. Home and away fans loved it there, the mixing of fans and facilities were excellent, it suits Rugby Union, why not Rugby League? Wimbledon too far to travel, I will miss my weekends watching Broncos. Especially the friendships I have made. Gutted is an understatement.

  2. As a follower of London’s team since the Fulham days, I disagree completely. Trailfinders is an adequate lower-level facility but is throughly soulless and without atmosphere. It is certainly in the bottom three of all the places we have called home over the years! Besides which, the RFL have confirmed that it will not be acceptable for the Super League so if we have any ambition to return to the top level, we MUST move. The new Plough Lane stadium will be a HUGE upgrade in all respects on whatever Trailfinders can offer us. It appears that your disapproval is based largely on the fact that you are local to Ealing and it’s convenient! If you are seriously deterred by travelling merely a handful of miles to Wimbledon to watch the team, to a stadium that will have excellent public travel connections, then I have to question how deep your support of the club runs.
