I'm not really a social media person is there much online chatter from Dons fans about this offer?

Every Dons fan that comes to LB is very welcome, and I hope the team provides enough entertainment to keep them coming back. I fully support every Dons fan and I really hope that they take up the offer and enjoy themselves, and that the remaining 50 or so Legacy Broncos fans give them every welcome.

I hope plenty of Dons fans turn up - and keep turning up.
I have nothing but the greatest respect for them with what they have achieved, restarting the club from scratch after the FA royally shafted them by moving them to MK.

I'm not so sure I want to see the Broncos looking like AFCW but...........

Dons fans are going to have to be coverted en masse for DH to stand any chance of hitting his target crowds. The existing Broncos fanbase has been allowed to die on the vine.

Saturday (15th) is the start of a busy 30 days at Plough Lane. AFC Wimbledon have seven home fixtures in that period, plus the opening two Broncos fixtures. This Sunday's Ladies match has been moved (playing away now with the home fixture to be rescheduled). The current Ladies clashes with the Widnes and Whitehaven will be moved closer to the dates. The pitch is high quality and Wimbledon are more than happy that Rugby League will not overload/damage it. Probably more concerned to have ended up with seven first team matches in four weeks.

Generally whenever an article is published (fixtures, offers, the new shirt etc), but not a lot. Was some requests to use any unwanted offers for the opening two matches. Whilst looking for cheap entry, I guess the fact the pro-actively want to attend is good.

How many return at standard price is key of course.

The three out of football season July matches will be interesting (the first two pre school holidays) as to whether there is an interest on a warm Sunday afternoon. One is Featherstone mind, may attract on the name, but probably not great on likely scoreline for any first timers.

AFC Wimbledon is the easy access to new supporters of course and is rightly targeted.

Enticing more of the general local community is really important as I'm not convinced the numbers directly from the football will be that significant. As a local resident, I only know of the arrival of the Broncos via AFC Wimbledon. To do that, there really needs to be a family package, based on standard pricing, few families are likely to "try it out" without significantly lower child prices.

Totally non comparable of course, but AFC Wimbledon Ladies started with a couple of free matches at Plough Lane and are keeping U18's free. Seem to be quite a few hundred continuing to attend. Not suggesting the Broncos do that, but illustrates there is a interest in lunch time attendance at Plough Lane

Can't see any good reason for Broncos not doing a few 'kids for a quid offers'

We’ll see how the season goes but on the face of it the Sweet spot July fixtures do look unfortunate. Halifax and Fev look considerably stronger than us and not the type of game to encourage new fans. Sheffield is the one they should push.

:CRAZY:
Football fans from the south wouldn't be able to find fev on a map....let alone ones from south of the river.
Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions could be roller derby teams as far as your average citizen of Merton is concerned.
