Chelsea in talks to buy AFC Wimbledon ground

Chelsea are in talks to buy AFC Wimbledon's stadium.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are in talks to buy AFC Wimbledon's humble Kingsmeadow stadium with a view to using it as a venue for their youth and women's teams.

The 4,800-capacity stadium in Kingston-upon-Thames, which will host AFC Wimbledon's FA Cup third round tie against Liverpool on Monday, is also home to Kingstonian, who play in the Isthmian Premier.

The land is owned by Kingston Borough Council and the lease belongs to AFC Wimbledon, who bought it from Kingstonian in 2003.
