Supporters Information For Sunday’s Match Against Dundee Utd

6,305 supporters will be attending Pittodrie for our league opener against Dundee Utd on Sunday 1 August 2021.

As with the Aberdeen v BK Häcken match, this match will also be treated as a further step towards the club demonstrating their capability to host matches safely with the latest local authority and government guidelines to hopefully enable the chance to accommodate larger crowds at Pittodrie.
