Aberdeen bid for new 21,000 capacity stadium

Aberdeen Football Club (AFC) has lodged a planning application for a new stadium with the city council.

The blueprint for the 21,000-capacity stadium at Loirston Loch, which will be lit by a red glow at night, has been submitted following public consultation.

“After much hard work and consultation, we are delighted to submit a planning application for a stadium that will inspire our fans and the wider community and be a major new attraction for Aberdeen.

“Loirston Loch was identified as the optimum site for this major regional facility and our goal is to deliver a stadium that will make our supporters proud” said AFC chief executive Duncan Fraser.

“The exciting design will create a modern, atmospheric stadium that offers the ultimate match-day experience and signifies the clear ambitions of the club.”

  • I wish Aberdeen well but am disappointed that they are going for the out-of-town solution. It is not environmentally-responsible nor supporter-inclusive to build a new ground dedicated to car drivers, unless there will also be good fast public transport links from all around the community ........... despite the fact that quite a few english clubs have already made the same mistake. A few buses to a single city centre location are not sufficient.
