Despite alleged concerns about the plans at Kingsford, the club aim to move eight miles west from Pittodrie to a new state-of-the-art facility, which will consist of a stadium with a capacity around 20,000 and a training complex.

The club have received pressure from the No Kingsford Stadium group who believe the move would have a negative effect on the Westhill area, with noise, traffic and light pollution the major concerns.

An Aberdeen spokesman said: “The exhibition will also provide feedback on the public consultation events it staged in Aberdeen, Kingswells and Westhill in July and August.

“It is therefore important that the club now shares its detailed proposals for this catalytic development and what it will deliver in sporting, social and economic terms with all interested parties.”

The “significant project for the club, the AFC Community Trust, the city and the region” will be displayed between 3pm and 9pm on November 24 in the Richard Donald Stand at Pittodrie.
