WHY DO WE EXIST
Basically, to help and assist MK Dons fans in getting the most out of their relationship with the club. Giving you as much information as possible to make your matchday experience as enjoyable as possible, and if needed we hope we can be of assistance giving you help and advice when things do not go to plan. We provide a valuable conduit between club and fans and we will strive to continue that relationship for many years to come.
As you can see for this season we have a brand new informative website and aim to keep you up to date with everything MK Dons, and we want to make it the first place you look when searching for the information you desire whether it be for ticket and travel info, match reports, fixtures or simply where to eat and drink when following the Dons away from home. We also have incorporated into the website the superb MK Dons Archive charting the history of our club since the very beginning, it is a really fascinating read, results and info since 2004, every programme, and every squad photo and if you have an hour or two to kill on the train on the way to a game, this is the perfect read for any Dons fan.
We aim to stay in contact with our members through all the usual media channels and negotiate deals and benefits for members. We hold quarterly meetings with the top management of the Club to discuss any issues or concerns the fans may have, we also assist the club with its Customer Charter putting the fans perspective into the clubs charter, and we act as a sounding board when the club have issues that will involve the fans.
We maintain relationships with the Football Supporters Federation and Level Playing Field (representing disabled fans). We have representatives on each of the three club Working Groups and deal with supporters’ queries and complaints. We sponsor two awards at the end of season Player of the Year ceremony. We deal with regular requests from the press and media and arrange fan forums with the club.
We have in the past run many social events such as FIFA nights, quiz nights, and many other events to raise money for charitable causes such as the Changing Places Project that raised £12,000 for a world class facility within the stadium, and in the future we plan to hold similar types of events.
Just recently the current MKDSA committee donated a widescreen TV for the “New Fanzone” on level 3 and we have plans to build on this for the future whereby the MKDSA will continue to work with the club to improve this facility. We hold monthly meetings of the MKDSA in the boardroom SMK as well as regular group chats on social media platforms and Zoom.
THE ARCHIVE – HISTORY IN THE MAKING
Milton Keynes Dons are one of the most controversial football clubs in recent history and consequently, have been the subject of constant interest from media publications and social networking websites. The reporting and discussion of the club since its formation in 2004 has been tainted by inaccuracies and assumptions and often this is simply down to a lack of research or access to all the facts. So, to ensure that there is a place where all the true facts about what has happened since 2004 can easily be found the Milton Keynes Dons Supporters Association have set up this archive. We hope that you will enjoy what you find in it and, as the title says, it’s History in the Making, and work on the archive is being constantly updated. So, if you have any mementoes or memories – or anything else – about the MK Dons, or would like to help us, we would love to hear from you, contact the Archive Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org To get started just click on the link below … and we hope you enjoy it.
