Why I won’t be going to watch my beloved AFC Wimbledon at MK Dons | Daffydd Bynon

I went to the first meeting between the clubs four years ago, and found it a deeply upsetting experience. I told myself then that I would never return to Stadium MKI’m not going on Saturday. I follow AFC Wimbledon everywhere, but not on Saturday. Not when they’re playing them, the enemy, the club that shouldn’t be. MK Dons. I went to our first ever meeting – the FA Cup tie in December 2012. There were more than 3,000 of us and we were there to make a point – that here we were, AFC Wimbledon, a club born out of a horrible decision made 10 years earlier and who belonged to the fans and would never be victim of the whims of owners who don’t have the best interests of the club and community at heart. In other words, the complete opposite of the team we were facing. Continue reading...

As wheelchair rugby flourishes why is it the only Paralympic sport not funded?

Implications of the lack of financial support means there is little likelihood Britain will have a national wheelchair rugby team to compete with the best in Tokyo 2020So wheelchair rugby will not be funded for the Tokyo cycle. According to Liz Nicholl, the CEO of UK Sport, who gave me the news this morning, this is not because wheelchair rugby has no potential to medal in Tokyo, but because there is just not enough resource to go round. The implications of this are significant – there is little or no likelihood that Great Britain will have a national wheelchair rugby team and certainly not one which can compete with the best in the world. GB is currently ranked 5th in the world and only lost to Australia, the Rio gold medallists by two points in extra time. Continue reading...

The rise of the Canadian clásico, a new twist on a long-standing rivalry

Montreal Impact and Toronto FC are giving an old enmity a fresh edge – as their fans, players and managers explain in this film By Copa90 and Kick, part of the Guardian Sport Network Nothing bring out the vibrancy of football like a rivalry. Things are no different in north America but, for the first time, the two clubs battling it out in the spotlight are Canadian. This contest did not start in football – the modern iterations of the two clubs have only been playing each other since 2007 – but Montreal and Toronto are not cities that had to learn to hate each other. The roots of the rivalry between Montreal Impact and Toronto FC can be traced back hundreds of years to Napoleonic Wars and the settling of modern-day Canada. The country’s two largest cities are only 500km apart but the English Protestantism of Ontario and the French Catholicism of Québec make them culturally distinct. That separation has often manifested itself most visibly through sport. In 1917, the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs played each other for the first time. This ice hockey battle has been the provincial prizefight for over a century, but a new generation of sports fans are expressing the rivalry through the medium of football. Continue reading...
