Aberdeen put new stadium plans on hold and reduce capacity of Pittodrie

Aberdeen put new stadium plans on hold and reduce capacity of Pittodrie

Thursday 12th March 2020

Aberdeen have put plans for a new £50m stadium on hold due to the financial impact of Coronavirus.

The new 20,000 capacity stadium on the outskirts of the city is still in the planning stage, but will not commence until funding is in place.

In a separate move, the club will also cut the capacity of Pittodrie by 6,500 from the start of next season. The move is an effort to improve the atmosphere and fan experience within the stadium.

The decision sees the Richard Donald Stand upper tier close and the "Red Shed" become unallocated seating, although it will be opened if demand for tickets is high enough.

This will cut Pittodrie's capacity to 15,500. The allocation for away fans will remain unchanged at 1,800.

It comes as the Scottish Premiership club challenges itself to raise season ticket sales from 10,000 to 11,000, with match day revenue accounting for around 50% of the club's budget.
