Aberdeen Football Club profile

Aberdeen Football Club are a Scottish professional football club based in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Aberdeen FC compete in the Scottish Premiership and have never been relegated from the top division of the Scottish football league system since they were promoted in 1905.

Aberdeen have won 4 Scottish league titles, seven Scottish Cups and six Scottish League Cups.

Aberdeen FC are also the only Scottish team to have won two European trophies, having won the European Cup Winners' Cup and the European Super Cup in 1983.

Formed in 1903 as a result of the amalgamation of three clubs from Aberdeen, they rarely challenged for honours until the post war decade, when they won each of the major Scottish trophies under manager Dave Halliday.

This level of success was surpassed in the 1980s, when, under the management of Alex Ferguson, they won three league titles, four Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup, alongside the two European trophies.

Aberdeen were the last club outside of the Old Firm to win a league title, in 1984–85, and also the last Scottish team to win a European trophy. The team has enjoyed less success since this golden era, but a 19-year wait for a major trophy was ended by winning the 2013–14 Scottish League Cup.

Aberdeen have played at Pittodrie Stadium since their inception.

The ground currently has a capacity more than 20,000  and was the first all-seated and all-covered stadium in the United Kingdom.

Pittodrie was also the first football stadium to feature a dug-out, an invention of player and coach Donald Colman.

The club's colours have been primarily red and white since 1939; before this, they played in black and gold vertical stripes.

Aberdeen FC attract support from the city and surrounding areas, as they are the only senior team within a wide area. Aberdeen have no geographically close rivals; their nearest neighbours at the same level are in the city of Dunde.

Aberdeen's supporters, known as the Red Army, are listed in the team squad list as wearing the number 12 shirt.
In 1999, a group of supporters founded the Red Ultras group with the express aim of improving the atmosphere at Pittodrie.

However, it was decided that this particular group was to disband at the beginning of 2010.

Organised chants and choreography still take place in 'centre block' of the top tier of the Richard Donald Stand and Aberdeen fans still do choreographies at home and away games.
