Wimbledon Football Club was an English football club formed in Wimbledon, south-west London. In 2001, after rejecting a variety of possible local sites and others further afield, the club announced its intention to move 56 miles (90 km) north to Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. An independent commission appointed by the Football Association granted permission for the move in May 2002. A group of supporters, appalled by the decision, responded by forming a new club, AFC Wimbledon. Wimbledon played their first match in Milton Keynes in 2003 and rebranded to Milton Keynes Dons in 2004.
