Aberdeen Football Club is an Aberdeen-based Scottish professional football team. They play in the Scottish Premiership and have never been relegated from the top tier of the Scottish football league system since being elected in 1905. Aberdeen has four Scottish league titles, seven Scottish Cups, and six Scottish League Cups to their name. They are also the only Scottish team to have won both the European Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup in 1983.

They were formed in 1903 as a result of the merger of three Aberdeen clubs, and they rarely competed for honours until the postwar decade, when they won all of the major Scottish trophies under manager Dave Halliday. This level of success was eclipsed in the 1980s, when Sir Alex Ferguson led them to three league titles, four Scottish Cups, and a Scottish League Cup, in addition to the two European trophies. Aberdeen were the last club to win a league title outside of the Old Firm in 1984-85, as well as the last Scottish team to win a European trophy. Since then, the team has had less success, albeit a 19-year drought for a major trophy was broken by winning the Scottish League Cup in 2013-14, followed by numerous second-place finishes behind Celtic in the league during the 2010s.

Aberdeen have played at Pittodrie Stadium since its inception. The stadium has a current capacity of 20,866 people and was the first all-seated and all-covered stadium in the United Kingdom. Pittodrie was also the first football stadium to have a dugout, according to player and coach Donald Colman’s innovation.


Since 1939, the club’s colors have been predominantly red and white; previously, they wore black and gold vertical stripes. Aberdeen has nearly always played with all-red stripes with white detailing in recent years. Aberdeen is popular in the city and neighboring areas because it has no geographically close rivals. Aberdeen, without a local rival, has fostered rivalries with more distant opponents like as Dundee United (known collectively as the “New Firm” in the 1980s) and Rangers.


Aberdeen has been referred to as “The Dons” since at least 1913. The origin of this nickname is unclear. Given Aberdeen’s history as a university town, one hypothesis holds that it comes from the term “don,” which means “teacher.” It could also be a reference to the adjacent River Don or an abbreviation for “Aberdonians.” Prior to being dubbed “The Dons,” the team was known as “The Wasps” or “The Black and Golds,” both of which referred to the team’s yellow and black striped uniforms. Aberdeen, like many other red-clad teams, is also known as “The Reds,” and some fans refer to them as “The Dandy Dons” or “The Dandies.”

Rival clubs refer to Aberdeen as “The Sheep” and their supporters as “The Sheep Shaggers” on occasion. The phrase was eventually accepted by the club’s fans, who began chanting “the sheep are on fire” during games. The song was written by away fans in response to an Aberdeen fan who was set on fire on a train while dressed as a sheep. As a result, the club and local companies began to sell specific goods.
