'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Wimbledon boycott of Milton Keynes

The proposed AFC Wimbledon supporters boycott of the FA Cup tie with MK Dons next month isn't going to happen.

The Wimbledon Independent Supporters Association (WISA) has issued a statement that they'll not "formerly request a boycott."

Feeling are still running high though: 'We are naturally disappointed that AFC Wimbledon will have to play Milton Keynes, a football franchise, that stole Wimbledon's original league place, in the second round of the FA Cup.

'After careful consideration, WISA has decided not to formally request a boycott of the fixture by Wimbledon supporters.

'This is a fixture that very few Wimbledon supporters want. This fixture is a result of AFC Wimbledon's phenomenal successes over the last ten years and must be incredibly embarrassing for those in Milton Keynes to be involved in.

'We don't see this fixture as a big grudge or rivalry match, but as one that should never have been allowed to happen.'

There isn't going to be any Wimbledon involvement at boardroom level in the MK Dons boardroom though with the offer to take a place in the executive areas decline.
