The YouTube Star That Helped Save A Soccer Club

With a title like this, VICE Sports had me at hello and they should have you too.

But if you’re somehow not yet convinced…consider this:

John Green is a best-selling author and a FIFA-loving YouTube star; AFC Wimbledon are a League 2 football club. On the surface, there is precious little that connects the two. But the story of how Green used his unorthodox fame to finance a club thousands of miles away is an inspiring tale of cultural exchange, triumphant populism, and the weird power of the internet.

Gotcha now?
