The first Football Aid game at Pittodrie kicked off on the 17th May 2001 with tough tackling Doug Rougvie and Gothenburg hero John Hewitt starting what was to become a long running Football Aid rivalry. Over the years, the likes of Neil Simpson and Jim Bett have also taken part in the highly competitive games, while Scotland Hall of Famer and fans favourite Willie Miller came onboard as the Club's Ambassador in 2006.
MATCH AVAILABILITY UPDATE
Despite continuing to be strong supporters of Football Aid, Aberdeen FC haven't been able to host a match in recent seasons because of essential pitch maintenance, and other events like concerts being staged on the Pittodrie pitch during the close season. In addition they recently confirmed that they wouldn't be able to host a match in 2014, however they remain keen to discuss the possibility of hosting a game in the season after that.
We do remain hopeful we might be able to host another event in association with the club in the future and to be the first to hear about news of any future Aberdeen events, please remember to Register on the website (if you’ve not done so already) and keep an eye on this page for updates as we get them.
