Live within a close proximity to the MK postcode? Well, you could watch The Don’s game against Bolton on February 4th, for free. As reported in The Sun.
The occasion is to mark the 50th birthday of the town itself. However, to be able for a free ticket – you must be able to prove that you reside in the area.
The club who caused such controversy when they were relocated from Wimbledon in the summer of 2004 – currently lies 18th in League One. Their first season back at that level, having suffered relegation from The Championship, last time around.
Their aim with this gesture, an ambitious one, is to fill their stadium for the occasion. The ground, once eyed up by Tottenham for a ground share, is a 30,000 seater.
In order for an eligible spectator to be able to attend the game – they must go the clubs ticket office. There will be no internet or phone sales. This is to ensure that interested parties do indeed fit the criteria. To prove that they do, they will need to take some kind of identification that proves they live within the distance specified.
Having parted company with long-serving manager Karl Robinson (now of Charlton Athletic) earlier this season, they are now managed by former Hearts boss, Robbie Neilson.
Their 12 year period in the football league – has seen them grow a reputation for giving young players a chance. Two of their most well-known include Brendan Galloway and currently England international and Spurs midfielder, Dele Alli.
