Football fans are still celebrating AFC Wimbledon’s victory in the promotion play-off final at Wembley Stadium on Bank Holiday Monday.
The 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle means the Dons will be playing in the third tier of the English game next season – the highest level it has reached since the club was reformed in 2002.
Robert Holmes & Co is an active supporter of AFC Wimbledon.
We have a perimeter advertising board at the club’s Kingsmeadow home that was seen by millions of TV viewers when the team’s 1-0 win in the home leg of the League Two play-off semi-final against Accrington Stanley was broadcast live earlier this month.
England’s chances of emulating AFC Wimbledon’s success when the European Football Championships kick-off in France on 10 June appear limited – if the result of the tournament was decided on each competing nation’s housing market.
New research reveals house prices in England increased by 26.8% over the five years to Q1 2016, taking the average price per square foot to £300.
This increase, although impressive, is eclipsed by Turkey, Iceland and Austria.
Although property values in Turkey have grown by 91.3% over the past five years, homes there are worth £46 per sq ft.
The value of homes in Iceland has risen 42.1% to £139 per sq ft, while Austrian properties are up 27.6% to £221 per sq ft.
Two of the world’s greatest footballing nations languish at the bottom of the Euro 2016 table. Spain is in 15th place with a 29.5% five-year fall to £124 per sq ft, while Italy is ranked 13th with a 14% fall in house prices to £180 per sq ft.
What about Germany? At 17.8% growth to £187 per sq ft, the Germans are sixth ahead of the Republic of Ireland (13% growth to £236 per sq ft) and Wales (7% growth to £149 per sq ft), which lie in ninth and 10th spots respectively.
