A date with the Dons

Posted by Lauren Austin on 13th April 2022

Recently our MD, Jacqui and Marketing Manager, Lauren, enjoyed an evening at Stadium MK watching the MK Dons beat Crewe Alexandra 2-0, which actually saw the Dons briefly sitting top of the league!

The second goal was scored by the player whose kit Vi sponsors this season, Conor Coventry, who has become a firm fan’s favourite since arriving on loan from West Ham United earlier this season.

We were met by the lovely Dean Bowditch, whom we’ve been associated with since he first started working with the MK Dons SET (of which we are also proud members), and got to walk through the tunnel to chat with fellow sponsors and of course, Conor. Conor spoke about his football career so far and how he’s enjoying living and playing in Milton Keynes. Unsurprisingly, he says the facilities at MK Dons are on par with the likes of Premier League West Ham, his parent club.

After being presented with our signed, framed photo of Conor, we had G&T’s in the Pitchside Bar before taking our seats to enjoy the game. And again at halftime of course!

MK won the game relatively comfortably against a struggling Crewe side which further secured their position in the automatic promotion places.

With such a talented, young side and fantastic facilities at the Stadium MK – we’re looking forward to (hopefully) seeing the Dons playing in the Championship next season! 🤞

We’re all huge football fans here at Vi, so supporting MK Dons and the Sport and Education Trust is a no-brainer for us.

With only a few games left, get yourselves down to cheer on the boys in white! #COYD!
