Aberdeen this evening announced the ticketing arrangements for the Scottish League Cup Semi-Final against Celtic at Hampden on Sunday 2 December 2018 – kick-off will be at 3pm.
The club have negotiated 20,000 tickets for this match, with Dons supporters situated in the South Stand and West Stand at Hampden. Based on past attendance figures for Aberdeen versus Celtic in a Final at Hampden of 18,000 (2016 League Cup Final) and 20,000 (2017 Scottish Cup Final), the AFC Board took the decision to underwrite and thereby guarantee 16,400 (over 80%) seats, ensuring our most loyal supporters get access to the best seats available.
Duncan Fraser, Aberdeen FC Chief Executive, said: “Our supporters have been our number one priority through our discussions. The fans that backed the team at the Semi Final were fantastic and to ensure our supporters most deserving get access to the seats they desire the Board had no hesitation in securing a significant allocation of tickets. The decision to allow those that attended the Semi Final to come in at the first phase followed feedback from our supporters”.
“We can now look forward in anticipation to an exciting League Cup Final, one which we hope will spark the imagination of not just our supporters, but the City as a whole.”
