Stadium MK to host Dons Cup tie
 Women's Football News 10 Nov 2010
Milton Keynes Dons are to play their FA Women's Cup Third Round Qualifying tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stadium MK this Sunday.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 1pm, with entry to Stadium MK via the Hotel / West Stand - admission will be £3 Adults and £1 Concessions and Under-16s.
"This will be only the second time we have played in StadiumMK, and the first time in a competitive game," MK Dons secretary Dave Mason told Women's Soccer Scene. "We officially formed as MK Dons Ladies back in June 2009 when we teamed up with the Sport & Education Trust and the Centre of Excellence to provide a progression up to a higher level of women's football.
"Originally formed as Rushden & Diamonds Ladies, the loss of funding for the club's own Centre of Excellence meant little prospect of attracting fresh faces into the team so the link with MK Dons provided a lifeline.
"Chairman Pete Winkelman and the board at MK Dons have been keen to support us from the outset and we officially launched the team in a pre-season friendly at StadiumMK on 1 August 2009, when we entertained Tottenham Hotspur.
"We also secured a sponsorship deal with Personal Group, and they remain very supportive of the team."
"The game against Wolverhampton Wanderers is one of eight all-Combination ties in the FA Women's Cup this coming Sunday, and with Wolves lying third in the Midland Combination and MK Dons third in the South East Combination, the game should be an excellent contest and will be an opportunity for both sides to play in front of a larger than normal crowd, and on an excellent pitch.
"It also gives us the chance to impress those who wouldn't normally come to our home games at Newport Pagnell Town, and hopefully encourage more support in the future," added Mason.
"The players were also lifted by the 1-0 win over Norwich City last Sunday. It was the sixth time we had played them in all competitions over the past two seasons and the first time they had come away with a victory. The Cup tie comes in the middle of three important games for the club, as we have to visit South East Combination front runners Tottenham Hotspur the following weekend."
