Milton Keynes dons

Milton Keynes Dons F.C. is a football club in Milton Keynes, England. They play in Football League Two.

The club came into existence on 21 June 2004 after a name-change by Wimbledon F.C., which had relocated to Milton Keynes nine months earlier. It is officially recognised by The FA as the continuation of Wimbledon F.C., but most of that club's original fans no longer support it, having instead founded their own club, A.F.C. Wimbledon, in south-west London, which they regard as the legitimate successor to Wimbledon F.C.

The club's current home stadium is the National Hockey Stadium, which is beside Milton Keynes Central railway station and which has been temporarily converted for football.
