Dons boss Derek McInnes has urged the Red Army to muster as large a support as possible at Hampden for the League Cup semi-final with Rangers.
News broke yesterday that the SPFL have reclaimed some sections of the national stadium’s east stand.
Aberdeen had been allocated these sections but the League Cup organisers are waiting to see how ticket sales progress.
The Dons have so far sold over 9,000 briefs for the last-four clash and have another 5,500 at their disposal.
If the sales are strong in the early part of next week, the Reds will be given access to more tickets which could see their allocation return to 20,000.
McInnes wants to deliver a great occasion next Sunday at Hampden as the Dons look to eliminate the Gers and reach the final. And he says the bigger the travelling support from the north-east the better chance his team will have.
He said: “I think it can help us. It’s important that we go and show ourselves in the best light as a club both on the pitch and off the pitch.
“We want to have strength in numbers off the pitch and have as big a support as we can.
“Hopefully we can deliver a performance on the pitch that gives us that opportunity to get back to Hampden for the final.
“When we started the competition against St Mirren and then winning the tight game on penalties against Hibs the intention was to go all the way and nothing has changed.
“It’s our seventh semi-final in my time and we’ve won three and lost three. The contrast between winning and losing a semi-final is huge.
“We know how we want to feel next Sunday after the game and that’s the feeling of being in another final,” said McInnes.
