MK Dons beat Cambridge City 6-1 on Tuesday to set up the first meeting between the two sides since AFC Wimbledon were formed in the wake of the original Wimbledon's relocation to Milton Keynes 10 years ago.
The League Two side, who have won promotion five times since their inception in 2002, have already said they will grudgingly fulfil the fixture.
But Simon Wheeler, chairman of the Independent Wimbledon Supporters Association, says he and may other AFC Wimbledon supporters will not be there to see it.
"This has reopened a lot of scars. We never wanted this to happen and frankly I feel numb," said Wheeler.
"I won't be going and I know lots of other fans won't be going. Personally I would rather take my girlfriend's mother to the garden centre than go to that game.
"Other fans will have to take a long look at themselves and make a personal, informed decision. We'll talk to the fans and to the club.
"We didn't ever want this to happen but it does highlight the phenomenal success of AFC Wimbledon from having had everything ripped out."
