History and description

Pittodrie Stadium has been the home ground of Aberdeen F.C. since 1899 and has a capacity of 25,000 spectators. Pittodrie Stadium was originally used as a football pitch by the original Aberdeen football club in 1899. The opening match, between Aberdeen and Dunbarton, resulted in a 7-1 victory for Aberdeen. Pittodrie Stadium is currently the home ground of Aberdeen F.C., and it has a capacity of 25,000 spectators. When the club merged in 1903 with Orion and Victoria to form Aberdeen FC, they kept their home at Pittodrie.

Pittodrie underwent a number of developments in the 1920s, including the construction of a new main stand in 1925. Around that time, the first modern dugout in the history of football was also introduced to the stadium.

In 1991, a new stand was erected and named the Cumbernauld End in memory of the former chairman John Cumbernauld. The Pittodrie Stadium hosted a record 45,061 spectators during a match against Hearts in 1954. The ground underwent renovations over the ensuing decades and by 1978 it became the first large British all-seater stadium. In 1980, covered stands were added to the South Stand, and benches were replaced by individual seats in 1991. Today, the Pittodrie Stadium is home to Aberdeen F.C.

The most recent development is the Richard Donald Stand, which was built in 1993.

By the mid 2000s, Pittodrie had become severely aged and the Aberdeen board of directors started looking into the option of renovating it. However, they soon realised that due to a lack of space any renovations would lead to a reduction in capacity to about 12,000, and instead decided to build a new stadium in the south of the city.

In 2011, the city of Aberdeen approved plans for the Aberdeen Arena, but due to various legal issues construction has been delayed with one year. Now Aberdeen hopes to occupy the new stadium at the start of the 2014/15 season.

Getting there

The Pittodrie Stadium is located about a mile north of the city center and less than a few hundred meters from the North Sea coast. The walk from Aberdeen Rail station should take no more than half an hour. It will take even less from most other city centre locations.

Drive from the A90 south on Holburn Street. At the second roundabout, take the right turn and continue onto Union Street. Follow Union Street until it intersects with King Street. Turn right onto Pittodrie Street and the stadium will be on your right.

Address: Pittodrie Street , Aberdeen, AB24 5QH

I love coming back to this location. The memories of the 1970s, when I would spend time with old school friends at the Pavilion bar lounge, and then head to the "Beach End" are magical.
