ABERDEEN have announced they are to freeze season-ticket prices at Pittodrie for the third season in a row.

Dons chiefs have also launched a scheme by which adult fans who purchase season tickets will be given a free pass for youngsters aged 12 and under.

In a statement, manager Derek McInnes said: “Season-ticket holders are the bedrock and foundation of a club and as a one-club city, AFC holds a unique position at the heart of the north-east community.

“We are very lucky at this club to have the level of support we do, but we are judged on the pitch and we need to deliver a team this city can be proud of once again. With the club looking to the future and placing a spotlight on our young fans with a free ticket for all under-12s, I am sure this is a gesture which will encourage a generation of new Red Army followers.”

Aberdeen announced last month they are to close the upper section of the Richard Donald Stand next season “to create a better match day atmosphere”.

The club’s attendance figures are at a three-year high with an average of 9,563 fans turning out for each home game. However, that is down from the average figure of 12,928 registered during the 2008-9 season.
