Wimbledon Stadium, scene of so much fantastic greyhound-racing history, is in danger of being closed. The stadium is actually owned by Irish debt-management agency NAMA.  At the moment plans have been submitted to London Council by both Galliard Homes (to build a football stadium and houses) and Paschal Taggart (to rebuild Wimbledon into a state-of-the-art greyhound stadium and also houses). The decision is due to be made shortly by London Council.

The plans by Galliard Homes were recently opposed by the residents of Wimbledon Park see more
and the residents of Wandsworth have also expressed their opposition to the plans see more

The semi-finals of the greyhound derby on May 24th 2014, were also a celebration of the history of the stadium and the early days of greyhound racing. Mick The Miller featured heavily in that night`s race-card, the front cover of which was a copy of the first Wimbledon race-card of 19th May 1928.
