Aberdeen’s Marischal College is set to be lit up red and white this week ahead of the Dons’ Betfred Cup final on Sunday.
The prominent building in the city’s Broad Street will be bathed in Aberdeen Football Club’s colours later this week.
The move comes ahead of the club’s crunch cup final on Sunday against Celtic at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
Almost 25,000 Dons fans will make their way down to the game this weekend as the Reds look to win their second League Cup trophy in just over two-and-a-half years.
Aberdeen City Council’s finance chief, Willie Young, said: “The important thing for us is that we’re all Aberdonians and we want to see the success of the city.
“We remember the last time Aberdeen won the League Cup and the feel-good factor that it had then.
“With the Christmas Village opening on Sunday, the Christmas lights going on and Aberdeen hopefully winning the League Cup, we’ve got a lot to look forward to as we head towards the new year.”
Councillor Young predicted a close encounter with the Dons just edging it.
He said: “I think 2-1 Aberdeen after extra time, and I’ll go for Jonny Hayes to get both of them.”
Dons fan Glen Schreuder, 24, who is a member of the Blazing Lambs supporters’ club, said illuminating Marischal College in the club’s colours would give the team and fans a lift.
He said: “It’s good that there’s a lot of positivity about the place.
“It’s encouraging to see the support in the city and it’ll be nice to see the building lit up in red and white.”
Should Aberdeen beat the odds to win the cup, Cllr Young confirmed the council would be keen to work with the club on a victory parade through the city.
Aberdeen last won the League Cup in 2014 when more than 40,000 fans descended on Celtic Park to watch the Dons beat Inverness on penalties after both teams drew a blank.
The Evening Express is also getting behind the Reds by giving away thousands of clap banners this week to help fans make some noise and cheer Derek McInnes’ men on.
