Best Selling Author Sponsors AFC Wimbledon
Tue 7th Jan 2014 | Football Sponsorship
AFC Wimbledon have announced a unique sponsorship deal with New York Times Bestselling author, John Green.
John, who is a fan of English football and has great admiration for AFC Wimbledon, said, “AFC Wimbledon is a truly extraordinary football club. Basically they're the best football team in the world and I want to help them stay in the football league.”
The 36-year-old’s achievements as a writer of fiction books for young adults include winning the Printz award in 2006 for his debut novel, Looking for Alaska, and he reached number one on a New York Times Best Seller list with The Fault in Our Stars just two years ago.
However, John’s collaboration with his brother Hank to create a You Tube channel in 2007 called vlogbrothers has arguably been even more successful. The channel utilised video blogs as a way of the brothers communicating with each other from different parts of the USA. Since then, vlogbrothers has gained an international fanbase known collectively as “Nerdfighters” and has been involved in charity work.
AFC Wimbledon Commercial Director Ivor Heller “This has been one of the most exciting and unique sponsorship deals that I have been involved with.
"John’s knowledge of the club is astounding and goes to show what a global reach AFC Wimbledon has. We look forward to working with John on many projects in the future..
