The latest addition to Allego’s vast European public EV charging network is the ultra-fast charging hub at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. The site was officially opened by some of the MK Dons Women’s players and is now fully accessible for all drivers of electric vehicles, providing 6 ultra-fast charge points through 3 dual-socket 300kW chargers.
Allego’s new Ultra-Fast EV charging hub, located on the West side of the Stadium, adjacent to Fitness First. The hub will allow visitors to Stadium MK, as well as residents and passing traffic, to charge their electric vehicle whenever they need, and in no more than 10-15 minutes. The charge points are designed and configured to be fully accessible to all drivers including wheelchair users with lower payment screens and wider parking bays, making them easy to use for everyone.

Paz Sharma, Managing Director Allego UK commented: “We are proud to have worked with Stadium MK to deliver Allego’s first ultra-fast charging hub in the UK. This is an important step in our future plans and a vital new piece of infrastructure to support Milton Keynes’ and Stadium MK’s green ambitions. The new charge points can offer up to an 80% charge in as little as 15 minutes, providing a huge boost to electric-vehicle drivers on the move. Along with being ultra-fast, our charge points are flexible and fair to all users – that’s why charging is open to all car types and models with no subscription fees or connection costs, just a simple tap of a credit or debit card, as well as 280 EV charge cards.“
Pete Winkelman, Chairman of Milton Keynes Dons Football Club commented: “We are delighted to welcome Allego’s new Ultra-Fast EV charging hub to our Stadium MK site. As part of our Stadium MK Net-Zero strategy, we are constantly striving to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone. Stadium MK was built with accessibility in mind, and we are proud that Allego’s new charging hub is uniquely designed and configured to be fully accessible to all users, including wheelchair users.”
Allego is no stranger to the UK market, having partnered with Shell to install its first ultrafast chargers in the UK in 2019. Now with over 160 UK charging sites, including more than 120 charge points installed across London over the last 18 months alone, Allego wants to work with partners to go further and faster in the UK.
The Allego network is set to expand rapidly over the next 5 years and beyond. Working with both private landowners and local authorities, the company is keen to invest an estimated 100 million pounds in ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure across the UK and Ireland.
