Dons expect green light today for fans plan
Aberdeen expect plans to have 300 of their fans at Pittodrie on Saturday to be given the green light today.
The Granite City stadium is set to be one of three arenas in Scotland to host a test event when the Premier ship returns at the weekend.
Fans have been absent from matches since March due to the corona virus crisis.
The D ons, who had hoped to get the go-ahead yesterday, plan to first see a section of their support return for the home game against Kilmarnock and even more for the visit of Motherwell the following weekend.
A statement on Ab erde en’ s official Twitter account read :“We are now expecting confirmation tomorrow [Tuesday] that our application for a test event with 300 season ticket holders for Kilmarnock (12/9/20) has been successful.
“750 fans for our match with Mother well should also be confirmed later in the week.
“Thanks for your patience! #Standfree”
Club chairman Dave Cormack said: “A big thank you to all the clubs, the SPFL and the SFA for all the hard work over the last couple of months to get us to where we are today.”
Earlier in the season, the club saw their match against St Johnstone postponed after eight firstteam players broke coronavirus protocols, angering First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
