‘Don for the Day’ | New AberDNA experience for Youth Members


On Friday 19th August, AberDNA Youth Members (age 12-21) will have an exclusive opportunity to experience what it is like to be a ‘Don for the Day’!

Building on the incredible success of the ‘Sign for the Dons’ days for AberDNA Junior, this event is targeted at the next level of AberDNA membership and provides a unique insight into the day-to-day life of a professional footballer.

As well as getting a behind-the-scenes tour of the famous Pittodrie stadium, Members will also get an insight into the hard work involved for the players to ensure they are at the peak of their physical performance. Members will receive nutritional advice and a fitness regime provided by our very own Head of Medical & Football Science, Kevin Bain.

There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A with recent Youth Academy Graduates Jack MacKenzie and Connor Barron!

The tours will last approximately 40 minutes and will run every 15 minutes, with the first tour starting at 3pm from the Main Stand Entrance on Pittodrie Street. With limited spaces, be sure to book in today!


The event will be held at Pittodrie, on Friday 19th August from 3.00-4.00pm. Spaces are strictly limited, and tickets are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Booking will be available from 12.00pm on Thursday 4th August and can be booked online at afc.co.uk/eTickets, by visiting the Pittodrie Ticket Office or calling 01224 63 1903.


Please note this event is only open to active AberDNA Youth and U12 members. It is not available to AberDNA Junior members.

As well as a whole host of benefits including events, Q&As, and discounts across the club, AberDNA members also play a vital role in supporting the Football Operation.
