The Club and Dons Trust, a supporters organisation which owns English League One football club AFC Wimbledon, has apologised to fans hoping to purchase their usual seat for the upcoming Emirates FA Cup game against Guiseley. 

The Trust hoped to free up large sections of the Ry stand at Plough Lane for this match so that local schools, amateur clubs and community groups had more of an opportunity to watch AFC Wimbledon.

Season ticket or debenture seat holders were asked to buy into an open seat policy and waive their right to buy in their designated seat, so that fans displaced from the Ry Stand had the same opportunity as other season ticket and debenture holders to buy a seat anywhere in the stadium.

However, a number of supporters expressed their displeasure at being displaced from their usual spot.
