Aberdeen have announced that the popular Red Shed will be a permanent fixture at Pittodrie next season.

The idea was tested during the Scottish Cup clashes at Pittodrie this term. It changed the Merkland Stand from a family sitting area to a raucous pit of red and atmosphere.

Many members of the Red Army were fully behind this idea and the experiment proved to be extremely popular. As such, Aberdeen have confirmed it will be a present fixture at every home game during 2020/21.

It’s one of many initiatives put in place under the stewardship of new owner Dave Cormack, one of which includes a partnership with MLS side Atlanta United.


For both matches this idea was trialed at, the cup games against Dumbarton and Kilmarnock, the Red Shed sold out. It’s clear that fans love this exciting new change which will likely boost the atmosphere at Pittodrie.
