World Class Rider set for Pittodrie this Saturday


Ahead of our match with St Mirren at Pittodrie on Saturday 30th November, Dons supporters will be able to enjoy some pre‐match entertainment with a difference as motorcycling legend, Dougie Lampkin MBE puts on a trademark display of stunts, tricks and outstanding skill.

Dougie is one of the greatest motorcycling champions of his age, winning twelve Trial World titles, along with numerous National and European championships including the Scottish Six Days Trial on twelve occasions too.

In recent years Dougie has also developed notoriety for breath‐taking and death‐defying stunts, often working with Red Bull to take on abandoned or intriguing locations around the world and now he is set for Pittodrie.

Dougie Lampkin’s pre‐match activity before we take on St Mirren is the first of a few planned activities between now and the end of the season as we look to maximise the potential of Pittodrie
for supporters over the next few seasons.

Ahead of Dougie’s visit, AFC Commercial Director, Rob Wicks commented, “We have had some strong feedback from supporters that they would like to see their matchday experience enhanced,
and pre‐match entertainment certainly forms part of that.

“Having worked with Dougie before I know that our supporters are in for a treat. Bring the kids along and you’ll be in for a treat as Dougie’s show is really amazing. With many motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the North‐East, it would be great to see them along at Pittodrie for the occasion too.”

Looking forward to his first visit to Pittodrie Dougie Lampkin added, “It is a little known fact that I was actually a keen footballer back in my youth, but definitely lacked the skills to play at professional level. Thankfully I was better on bike , so I am really looking forward to showing AFC fans why I decided to hang up my football boots at an early age.”

Supporters are encouraged to turn up early, with the first of three shows starting at 1.45pm outside the Richard Donald Stand and the final show set to kick‐off at 2.30pm. Look out for more
information across our channels in the build‐up to the match.

Tickets for the match with St Mirren are available now, with U12 tickets available from £6 and Adult tickets available from £22. Full ticket information.
