History

Founded in 1889 as Wimbledon Old Centrals, the club became Milton Keynes Dons in 2004. The club is most known for many as Wimbledon, though, which was the club's name for almost 100 years (1905-2004). After moving to a new town and getting a new name, the club chosen to drop all connections with the old club and at the same time a new club in London, AFC Wimbledon, was founded.
