Derek McInnes today insisted it was important every Dons fan who travelled to the Betfred League Cup semi-final should have the chance to buy a ticket for the final.
Nearly 11,000 Aberdeen supporters were at Hampden for Sunday’s 1-0 win over Rangers.
McInnes is delighted they will all be rewarded for their support by having the opportunity to buy a ticket for the final against Celtic on December 2.
The Dons had pushed for a 50-50 split of briefs for the final against holders Celtic at Hampden.
Despite the Reds’ stance, the SPFL have confirmed Aberdeen will receive 20,000 tickets for the final, with Celtic allocated 25,000.
Aberdeen have confirmed every Reds fan who attended the semi will be given the opportunity to attend the final.
Tickets go on sale online on Tuesday November 6 (5.30pm) to fans with 80+ points and those who were at the semi win over Rangers.
McInnes said: “I am so grateful for the supporters that made the effort to go down on Sunday and it is important that every one of them gets a ticket for the final. They should be the priority for getting tickets.”
Aberdeen fought for a 50-50 split for the semi-final but had to give around 5,000 tickets back for the East Stand due to less than anticipated sales.
McInnes is confident the allocation for the final will be sold out as 18,000 travelled for the 2016 League Cup final and 20,000 for the 2017 Scottish Cup final that same season.
Aberdeen supporters will be situated in the South Stand and West Stand at Hampden.
The Pittodrie Board took the decision to underwrite and thereby guarantee 16,400 seats, ensuring access to the best seats available.
Duncan Fraser, Aberdeen FC chief executive, said: “Our supporters have been our number one priority through our discussions.”
The allocation was decided following agreement with the two clubs and the Hampden Park safety officer, as well as in consultation with police.
