Dons chiefs have also launched a scheme that will see adult fans who purchase season tickets handed a free pass for youngsters aged 12 and under.

In a statement, boss 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 2008/09 season.
