Pittodrie Stadium

Pittodrie1Pittodrie Stadium was first used in 1899 and, from 1903, has been the home of Aberdeen FC. Since then, it has been the location of a number of firsts in the field of stadium design, notably becoming the first all-seater stadium in the United Kingdom and the first club to use a dugout. It is now one of the largest stadium in Scotland and has a seating capacity of 20,961.

In addition to its main duty of hosting home matches for Aberdeen FC, it has been the venue for a number of Scottish International matches and occasional games of rugby. It can also be used for concerts, with Rod Stewart playing there most recently. Away from the playing surface, there a number of conference and dining facilities located within the stadium, and a Club Shop.

The most recent development of the stadium came in 1993 when the Beach End stand on the east side of the ground was demolished, with the new Richard Donald stand constructed in its place. The stadium has remained relatively unchanged since then, although some minor improvements, such as the introduction of an electronic stadium entry system for the 2006/07 season, have been carried out.
