Description

Combine a fictional tale with a (true) fairy tale on this Boxing Day 2021 groundhop.

We’ll take in some of the Ted Lasso filming locations, have a pint in Ted’s pub, check out the shops on his street, maybe pick up some AFC Richmond gear, and then it’s off to Wimbledon for lunch in a local market and the derby featuring fellow London club Charlton Athletic in League One.

AFC Wimbledon is a “phoenix” club that rose from the ashes after the owner of Wimbledon FC moved the club to Milton Keynes to become MK Dons. They started in the 9th tier of English football and rose all the way to the third tier, even passing MK Dons at one point, and now they have built a new stadium in their traditional home, Plough Lane.
