About AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon were born out of adversity in 2002. Seen as the continuation of Wimbledon FC who on May the 28th 2002 were given permission to relocate to Milton Keynes. Wimbledon Fans got together and decided to start again. The Dons Trust would own the club and it would become a wholly fans owned club.

Since those early days the football club has gone from strength to strength. Winning 6 promotions and finding its way back to the EFL in 9 short years. The club has had many heady days which include playing Liverpool in the FA Cup and actually knocking out West Ham United in 2019.

Fortius has been providing outstanding medical care to professional footballers and teams for many years and we have extensive experience in football medicine. We look forward to developing a long-standing partnership with AFC Wimbledon and being part of the Wimbledon community.
We are delighted to welcome Fortius to Wimbledon. Not only the club but to the Town centre where they have set up a clinic. As our health and wellbeing partner we will be regularly liaising with them to see how their services can benefit our team and fans.
