Jemca Toyota Croydon is proud to back our local football team AFC Wimbledon as it sets out on its journey to return to its spiritual home in Plough Lane, Merton.
Currently, located just half an hour’s drive from our Purley Way dealership, the new 11,000-seat stadium will be even closer when completed.
General Manager Andreas Androu commented that: “We have partnered AFC Wimbledon at one of the most exciting times since the club first formed. As a business we are always looking at ways to be involved in the local community and partnering AFC Wimbledon is a fantastic way to support a local club which has kept going against the odds. We are delighted to be involved in the club at such a critical point in its history as it gears up to return to its spiritual home and we are also looking forward to supporting AFC Wimbledon from the terraces along with their fans.”
The partnership also provides Jemca Toyota Croydon with the perfect platform to showcase its vehicles particularly its petrol-electric hybrid range as increasing numbers of motorists look for cars which impact the environment less whilst still delivering a dynamic and comfortable drive.
Added Andreas: “We are looking for new and innovative ways to promote the extensive hybrid range from Toyota and highlight the brand’s journey to developing emission-free motoring in the future.
“Our sponsorship enables us to tell the Toyota story to car drivers who may not have otherwise considered the brand or may not have realised that more fuel-efficient and lower emission driving is possible without compromises including cost. We are looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm for the brand with AFC Wimbledon fans.
“When it comes to developing low emission, exceptional fuel economy, high performance cars with top level specification and with highly trained technicians in the network who ensure cars stay in the very best condition for the road, official Toyota franchises like Jemca in Croydon are streets ahead of the competition.”
AFC Wimbledon was founded by Wimbledon FC supporters in 2002 when the team relocated to Milton Keynes, the team was renamed Milton Keynes Dons in 2004. Fans were desperate to maintain a local club when the move was announced and wanted to keep the connection to the local area. Originally playing in the Premier Division of the Combined Counties League, the ninth tier of English football, AFC Wimbledon now plays in the third tier following promotion to League One in 2016. Based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston, the club will move to its new home on the site of the former Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium near Plough Lane, Wimbledon FC’s home from 1912 until 1991, in 2019.
