Aberdeen Beach Stadium

Dave Cormack Provides Beach Stadium Update

Dave Cormack has provided a brief update on a possible re-think on a new stadium being built at the beachfront.

Last week, it was indicated that there had been early discussions with Aberdeen City Council on an updated City Centre Masterplan.

Dave Cormack said: “Should the positive news that the regeneration of the beachfront, as part of a refreshed city centre masterplan, be approved & progressed, the Club is open to exploring this potential new site, but everyone involved recognises it’s still VERY early days.  Thanks!”

The club said in a statement last week that: “With Pittodrie earmarked for housing, we are a key stakeholder at the beach.

“During initial conversations, the possibility of the club being involved in the sports and leisure element was discussed.

“It’s far too early to make any comment on whether or not this would be progressed by either the club or the council.

“We remain committed to a new stadium, sports and community facilities at Kingsford, albeit our plans to progress to the next stage have stalled due to the financial challenges we are facing as a result of the pandemic.”
