Pittordrie Stadium is the home to Aberdeen FC and in 1978, became the second all-seater stadium in Britain, after Clydebank.
The club have played here from day one but earlier this year, the club were granted approval to move to a new 21,000 seated stadium at a site in Kingsford. It’s yet unknown when work will begin and when they will leave Pittordrie.
The main stand was constructed in 1925 and then in 1968, further investment seen the stand become all-seater. It was at this time that the name of the stadium was changed from Pittordire Park to Pittordrie Stadium.
The stadium became an all-seater in 1978 and the last major redevelopment came in 1993 when a two-tier stand was built at the Beach end.
