Kingsford Training Complex

New Training Complex To Open October 31

The new Aberdeen FC Training and Community complex will open on Thursday 31 October 2019.

It’s the first phase of a project that will also see a 20,000 seater stadium adjacent to Cormack Park.

Stewart Milne said: “It gives me great pride to see the satisfaction from others now that we are seeing it all materialise.

“The ultimate reward will be when we see Derek (McInnes), Tony (Docherty, assistant) and the players out there actually using the facilities.”

He said: “All the setbacks we experienced over all the years made us even more determined.

“We appreciated how big the gap had grown between ourselves and most of the other top clubs around us with regards to those facilities.

“There really wasn’t an option to give up. We were always very much of the mind that one way or another we were going to deliver a facility.

“It has been a long, quite tortuous journey at times but there has been a lot of people in and around the club that have made major commitments and played a huge part in helping us get there.”

The new complex will consist of three professional pitches (one hybrid with undersoil heating), two floodlit 3G pitches and two grass pitches.
