Aberdeen will be playing their home games at the Aberdeen Sports Village (ASV) after signing a partnership that will see them play their competitive SBS SWPL 2 matches there. It will also see the first team train at the Village which will include strength and conditioning sessions.
Stefan Laird, Aberdeen’s Head Coach, was clearly delighted, commenting that the deal with ASV will be hugely beneficial for the club. He added that the club is “trying to establish the women’s game in the North East of Scotland and this move will help us attract new players from all over the North East.”
Laird also believed that the partnership will also improve the experience for fans due to the ASV’s catering facilities and covered stand.
The CEO of the ASV, Duncan Sinclair, was also delighted to have signed the partnership with the club. He praised the relationship with the club, and he felt that this deal would improve this even further. Sinclair explained the facilities included indoor and outdoor pitches, and talked of his belief that not only will the facilities help increase the number of spectators at Aberdeen games, but it would also help introduce more people to the “world-class facilities” that ASV has.
He added, “ASV is focused on providing superb sporting facilities for the community so we are delighted to play our part in enhancing the training options for the Premier League team as they focus on their future goals.”
Aberdeen’s first game at their new home will take place on Sunday 18th February and will be against St Johnstone with a 1pm kick-off.
