In addition to its main duty of hosting home matches for Aberdeen FC, it has been the venue for a number of Scottish International matches and occasional games of rugby. It can also be used for concerts, with Rod Stewart playing there most recently. Away from the playing surface, there a number of conference and dining facilities located within the stadium, and a Club Shop.
The most recent development of the stadium came in 1993 when the Beach End stand on the east side of the ground was demolished, with the new Richard Donald stand constructed in its place. The stadium has remained relatively unchanged since then, although some minor improvements, such as the introduction of an electronic stadium entry system for the 2006/07 season, have been carried out.
Aberdeen FC’s home is Pittodrie Stadium, located close to the City Centre of Aberdeen, and is easily reachable by car, bus and train.
Parking in the stadium car parks is reserved for pass holders, with a limited number of spaces available on a first come, first served basis for disabled badge holders. The police will direct buses to coach parking areas at the stadium. There is a limited amount of free car parking available in streets around the stadium but be aware that there are match day restrictions on parking – check the signs.
Please note that you will not be allowed to drive on Pittodrie Street close to kick off time unless you have a valid car park pass for the Pittodrie Street car park or a disabled badge (spaces subject to availability).
On exiting the train station onto Guild Street, cross to the entrance to the Trinity Centre. Continue straight through the centre on to Union Street. It is possible to walk to Pittodrie from here by turning right and heading up towards King Street. Continue along King Street until you see Pittodrie Street on the right. By this point Pittodrie is easily visible. There are buses from Union Street that take you to Pittodrie. A number 13 (towards Seaton) will drop you off on Golf Road with Pittodrie on the left. A number 1 (towards Danestone), 2 (towards Ashwood), or X40 (towards Dubford) will drop you off on King Street. The best stop is the one after King Street Bus Depot, then make your way down Pittodrie Street or Merkland Road on the right.
