Your guide: Anniversary game

21 September 2012

Wanderers are celebrating their 125th anniversary on Saturday when fellow supporter-owned club AFC Wimbledon visit Adams Park (k.o. 3pm), and as always there's plenty going on around the ground...

Tickets - Members receive a £2 discount, while by booking in advance, you have the option of having your ticket sent to your email address, enabling you to print it off and bring it to the stadium to reduce queuing times on arrival. Call 01494 441118 or buy .online

Pre-match entertainment - memorabilia enthusiasts will be able to view a collection of historic items from the club’s past, while 125 blue balloons will be released minutes before kick-off.

A numbered label will be tied to each balloon and anyone who returns a label to the club will receive a pair of complimentary tickets to a league game of their choice.

If you’re aged between six and 16 and keen to be a part of the balloon release, head to the marquee from 1pm and register your interest. Fans will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Half-time entertainment - Joint-chairman Don Woodward and a representative from AFC Wimbledon, the club’s mascots and a fan from each set of supporters will take part in the Kukri Zorbing Championship.
