Band to play New Wimbledon Theatre on May 9

Mumford and Sons are set to play a fundraiser show for AFC Wimbledon in London next month.

The band will headline the New Wimbledon Theatre on May 9 to raise cash for the non-league football club, which was formed in 2002 following the relocation of the original Wimbledon FC team to Milton Keynes.

Matthew & The Atlas will support the band at the show. Tickets go on sale at 11am (BST) this morning (May 3) – see for details.

A message on the band’s official website read: “When a team that lies particularly close to the hearts of two members of the band – AFC Wimbledon – approached them to enquire if they’d play a show to raise funds for the club (which is on the verge of a return to the football league) they were only too happy to oblige.”
