Dons fans have branded the decision to make Aberdeen’s League Cup semi-final against Rangers at Hampden a noon kick-off “an absolute disgrace”.
Supporters’ groups, the club and Hearts have all hit out after it was revealed both semi-finals would be played at the national stadium in Glasgow on the same day.
And now the Evening Express has launched a petition in an effort to make the SPFL reconsider the ridiculous scheduling of the Aberdeen v Rangers League Cup semi-final on Sunday October 28.
The lunchtime kick-off is an outrageous time for fans from the north-east to get to Hampden – and scheduling the Hearts v Celtic semi on the same day at the same venue only compounds the problem.
Sign this petition to send a message to the SPFL that’s loud and clear: This showpiece fixture MUST be changed to a new venue or time for the sake of the fans.
