Wycombe Wanderers and AFC Wimbledon will contest the ‘Cherry Red Records Cup’ when they meet at Adams Park for a pre-season friendly tonight.
The match is sponsored by Cherry Red Records, who are long-time partners of the Dons and came on board as the Chairboys’ short sponsors last season, also taking up the rear of shirt sponsorship for the 2017/18 campaign.
The independent music record label have been involved in football sponsorship for more than 20 years, and Wanderers’ commercial manager Damian Irvine has thanked them for the involvement in the meeting of two fan-owned clubs on Tuesday evening (k.o. 7.45pm).
“On behalf of Wycombe Wanderers, I wish to thank Adam and the team at Cherry Red Records for their incredible support and commitment to our club since first joining us as short sponsors last season.
“Cherry Red Records are genuine supporters of grass roots and supporter influenced football clubs and they understand and value the principles and character of our club and of course our good friends at AFC Wimbledon.”
AFC Wimbledon's chief executive Erik Samuelson added: "We are very fortunate to have sponsors such as Cherry Red Records who are supportive of the club in a wide range of ways and are actively involved in what we do.
"Their sponsorship of tonight’s game is another example of their support. Cherry Red Records have sponsored the club since 2002 and, of course, have sponsored our stadium for many years.”
