League Two AFC Wimbledon CEO Erik Samuelson "hopes the club will be able to build a new stadium at Plough Lane in time for the 2017-18 campaign," according to the BBC. The Dons "found out they would be able to submit a planning application for a new ground in Merton, near to where the old Wimbledon FC played, last week." Samuelson: "There are several challenges to overcome." AFC Wimbledon is "proposing the construction of an initial 11,000-capacity stadium, which could later be expanded to 20,000, on the site of Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium." The construction of 600 homes in conjunction with Galliard Homes "is also a part of their redevelopment plans." A new ground at Plough Lane in Merton "would mark a return to AFC Wimbledon's spiritual home" (BBC, 6/17).
