Dave Cormack: Aberdeen ‘hopeful’ of 7,500 crowd by end of September

Aberdeen have sold 6,700 season tickets so far for next term

Aberdeen are “increasingly hopeful” that 7,500 fans may be allowed at games at Pittodrie by the end of September.

The Scottish Premiership clubs were briefed by national clinical director Jason Leitch on Wednesday, ahead of the scheduled 1 August start to the season.

And Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack believes clubs may now only have “a few games behind closed doors – four home games takes us through September”.

“That’s our best estimate right now,” he added in a series of tweets.
