Aberdeen were today demanding a 50-50 split of the tickets for the League Cup Final.
The Dons beat Rangers 1-0 at Hampden in the semi-final and will face Celtic at the national stadium in the final on Sunday December 2.
For yesterday’s last-four clash, about 11,000 members of the Red Army were in attendance, despite the club at one point having an allocation of 20,300 tickets.
However, it is expected that demand will be greater for the final and a 3pm kick-off should make travel easier for supporters.
Dons manager Derek McInnes hopes they can secure an even split of tickets, but says Aberdeen’s argument is weakened by the semi-final turnout.
He said: “Our argument is weakened based on a semi-final.
“But a cup final is there for people to enjoy and we’ve always brought plenty to a cup final.
“Our semi-final crowd has normally been as it was yesterday, regardless of the opposition. To get almost 11,000 fans down on a Sunday is still not bad shooting – and that’s the way it’s always been for our club.
“For cup finals, we’re looking for a lot more and I’m sure if we get a 50-50 split there will be plenty of people wanting to see Aberdeen competing in a cup final.”
