I think that we'll get an earlyish kick off at hampden, probably about 13:30, leaving plenty time to get there. With the other game at 16:00 at Murrayfield.

What a fuck about for the SPFL to get their fucking act in gear. Wankstains.

Here is something else to throw in the mix.

Quote
The SPFL may also have to fork out £300,000 to the SRU to hire Murrayfield and it is not clear whether or not Hampden Park Limited will require compensation for the potential fixture loss.

The additional seats should cover most if not all of that. 67k v 52k. I’m sure that’s what the SRU have figured anyway., and rightly so.

Hearts v Celtic might just manage to fill 67k seats. No chance if its us v sevco

Hearts' Scottish League Cup semi-final against Celtic has been moved to Murrayfield and will kick-off at 13:30 GMT on 28 October and Aberdeen v The Rangers will take place on the same day at Hampden at 16:30.

Or will Celtic put a stop to this new venue before it happens.  :confused:

Following a further planning meeting with the SPFL and all relevant parties at Hampden yesterday afternoon, the club can now confirm full ticketing information ahead of the Betfred League Cup Semi Final match against Rangers on Sunday 28th October, KO 4.30pm.
Aberdeen FC were initially allocated 16,800 tickets however, as a result of intensive negotiations we have now successfully secured a guaranteed allocation of 20,300 tickets for our supporters.
This will result in an increased number of premium tickets in the South Stand being available, alongside further tickets in the East Stand.

Well done...Hope we get them all sold  :thumbsup:

So it took ‘intensive negotiations’ to ensure we’re only outnumbered by about 10,000?  :dunno:

Yep, ridiculous. Due to Hampden being a shite ground, we get offered 14,000 substandard seats and then questioned as to why we cannot sell them. We should be offered half the South, half the North and then continue to sell the East from the top down if we sell those. If there's not a full house then it's because Hampden is a shite venue - no other reason. Row 1 behind the goals is worse than watching in a pub where you can't see the TV. We'll not sell 20,300 because 20,300 people won't part with money to be treated like a second class citizen. It's not AFC's problem that Hampden is shite, so why do we start off with an unfair advantage because it is?

I'm certain I saw late last week that only around 44k of the 50k capacity is sold to fans of both teams. Around 6k is distributed by the SPFL and SFA to corporate sponsors etc. (it was said that the likelihood is a sizeable majority of these corporate fannies would be sevconians anyway so even if we got a 50/50 split we'd still end up outnumbered).

I take it sevco are getting the whole of the North stand. It stinks but absolutely no surprise.

Sevco getting the whole of the North Stand is as good a reason for not going as I can imagine.

Confirmed sevco getting all of North Stand. Allocation just shy of 26k in total

Ridiculous decision.  As much as I hope we sell out our allocation, I also hope no one bothers. Not the clubs fault, squarely the SPFL's (and also the SFA's for sticking with that shitehole).

I’ll be very happy (and surprised) if we sell 20k, but let’s be honest - how fucking good would it be to actually witness 30 thousand dejected Huns trudging towards the hampden exit with 15 minutes to go?! I’ve dreamt of that moment... ;D

Hope the red army rise to the occasion.

It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.

Every Cup Semi and Cup Final should be a 50/50 split regardless, unless a club involved specifies it does not requires a full 50% allocation.  :wave:

Hearts have sold 5,000 tickets for their semi within the first hour of sales.

Good to see a support actually up for their semi-final.

It does help a bit when you are playing said semi a 400 yard stroll from your own home ground. Makes Hampdung look positively remote in comparison to the arse cheeks' home grounds.

The ridiculous decision to award the Huns more tickets than the Dons means that this is no longer a neutral venue. Spfl have added to the catalogue of what seems to be and comes across as anti Dons decisions.
No problem with the Huns receiving more tickets IF we can sell them, but to give them a bigger allocation straight off is blatant favouritism.

We fought hard and loud about this inequality in the past and once more, the blazers don't give a shit about anyone else other than their favoured teams. Blatant cheating and against the slogan of "fair play" that has been printed by football authorities for years.
