Club Statement


Following the update from the First Minister this afternoon the Club is digesting the wide-ranging implications and challenges brought about by the significant restrictions which come into force for three weeks from 26 December.

Matches at Pittodrie over the festive period are traditionally very well attended and are a vital source of revenue for the Club, particularly given the challenges it has already faced in the previous two years. These latest restrictions are likely to cost the Club up to half a million pounds.

Whilst the safety of our supporters — and those in our wider community — are of uppermost importance, the news this afternoon is a huge blow to all at Aberdeen FC and clubs across Scotland.

We are working hard behind the scenes with other clubs and the SPFL to navigate these new restrictions and will provide further clarity to supporters and corporate clients as soon as practically possible.
