Forget Christmas, and don’t even think about those decorations – the biggest thing on everyone’s mind next week should be the Betfred Cup final.
Cup final fever is starting to build ahead of Aberdeen’s cup final clash with Celtic next weekend.
To help get in the mood for the big day, the Evening Express has teamed up with Aberdeen FC to produce thousands of masks to help the Red Army strike fear into Brendan Rodgers’ Hoops.
And it’s time for Aberdeen fans everywhere to step forward and Don their mask – it could even win you tickets to a game at Pittodrie.
We want you to send in selfies of you and your pals wearing the masks, and everyone involved in the winning photo selected by us will receive a ticket to the Aberdeen v Livingston match on Tuesday December 11.
Even Dons stars including wing wizard Niall McGinn, defensive rock Mikey Devlin and back-up goalkeeper Tomas Cerny have got involved by pulling on their masks.
An Aberdeen FC spokesman said: “The club and Evening Express have worked together to create a unique mask free in today’s paper ahead of the Betfred Cup final with Celtic at Hampden next Sunday.
“We hope as many members of the Red Army as possible who have already snapped up tickets to pack out the national stadium and roar the team to victory cut out and wear their masks with pride on final day.
“Help us create a sea of red and white Saltires in the stands to back the Aberdeen players.
“Even those who haven’t been able to get a ticket can stick one on to support the team from wherever they may be watching the game.”
Famous city faces Robert the Bruce, William Wallace and Poised the Marischal Square leopard have shown their support for Derek McInnes’ men in selfies we have received so far.
The big game may not be until next Sunday but, along with the Dons, we want everyone to turn the city red and white ahead of the Hampden cracker.
Chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired Adrian Watson said although the match was in Glasgow, it would be a boost to the city centre.
He said: “We represent city centre businesses, and we saw the difference when we got behind the Dons the last time they made it to the Scottish Cup final.
“But it goes beyond the businesses, as ultimately the city centre is all about people.
“This is the regional capital, it’s the regional city centre as well, so this adds a lot of value to the city.
“Here’s an opportunity for us to bring that real flourish of colour to the city.
“It adds that buoyancy as well – when the Dons are doing well, more and more people are out and about, so it’s a win-win, and we hope that it’s a win on the day as well.”
