It would be hard to feature the highlights of Aberdeen without mentioning the famous Scottish premier league Football Club Aberdeen FC.

Affectionately known as the ‘Dons’, their home is Pittodrie stadium, close to the city centre. In 1978, Pittodrie Stadium became the first all-seated, all-covered football ground in the UK. Those were the days of the long wooden bench seating, which dramatically increased your odds of a broken leg if wild celebrations following a goal.

Nowadays, individual seats are in place, so at least comfort and safety are better. Away fans are housed in the South Stand, with size of allocation and prices of entry dependent on opposition. Celtic and Rangers get a bigger section than the other teams, but they usually fill it (if they are winning).


It may not be as modern as Ibrox, Parkhead or Hampden Park, but there is something special about this stadium. The atmosphere is simply exceptional, especially when the capacity of 21,634 is nearly reached.

Away fans are normally allocated seating in the South Stand. Refreshments are decently priced, and the toilet facilities are some of the best, especially for women.

There is a family section at the Merkland Road end, where child away fans can be accommodated.
