South Stand closed to Dons fans as Aberdeen’s Scottish Cup game gets go-ahead

Aberdeen’s Scottish Cup quarter-final against Kilmarnock looks set to go-ahead tomorrow.

Both clubs and the SFA have been monitoring the conditions and, based on the latest information from Police Scotland and Transport Scotland, the decision has been made for the game to kick-off as planned at 3pm tomorrow.

In a statement on the club’s website, the Dons said: “Over the past 48 hours additional efforts have been made to prepare the stadium and surrounding areas for Saturday’s William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final with Kilmarnock at Pittodrie, and as a result the pitch is in a playable condition.”

Fans are advised to plan their journeys and allow extra time for travel.

However, home supporters will be unable to access the South Stand after weather conditions hit water supplies to parts of the stand.

Home fans will instead be given unallocated seats in Richard Donald Stand Upper.

Away fans will still be housed in the South Stand.
