Aberdeen FC Aurora Campaign.
Aberdeen FC Aurora Campaign a stupid name for a stupid project that will fail, fans don’t want it but what do they matter?
Aberdeen FC Aurora Campaign is doomed to fail before its even begun, I am a long standing Dons fan and I won’t go back till they back down and stop this stupid Aurora Campaign to create a new football ground outside the city of Aberdeen.
Our Chairman has always wanted the move so they come up with the noval idea of under developing their own ground till it costs so much to update it to current standards to make the excuse its cheaper to build a new stadia.
Aberdeen FC board including the chairman created all this just to get their own way, yes they may have saved the club and yes they now have a winning team but the fans dont want it but do they care?
Local press, radio stations have all bought into it but its a scam unlike any other new stadia in the UK this site has terrible transport links there is no trains, tubes or trams for the fans to get there that does not drive!
1600 car parking spaces only for season ticket holders only plus 600 all at a heavty fee upfront most people that drives are 1 person drivers but lets say its an average of 2 per car thats a grand total of 4000 fans and that was based on 13500 average gates this season its around 15500 so far and if they ever do fill it most will be walking to the ground.
Most fans that currently go like a drink in the City and walk to the ground, you cant do that for kingswells?
So they only time locals wont moan is when Aberdeen City fans findout what a hastle its going to be getting there, increased costs and nightmare getting back home on public transport which is another thing the club fails to mention on where all the return buses are going to park?
Its ok for laying on 17 buses an hour but if all fans 10,000 came by bus where do you park up 60 buses and 60 bus drivers after a big game, this is just not thought out?
Going there in the winter time will be a nightmare when it snows there its 4 times deeper than it will ever be at the seaside and how will non driving fans get back into the city centre?
No thoughts about them the directors will be OK though, thats the way it goes as always?
The car parking plans are laughable and all the multi-millionaire directors wont have to worry about it either but the fans are going to be short changed eveytime.
The only thing going for it is the new Aberdeen bypass and new training facilities.
The truth is all vested interests has signed up to the directors plans but the fans in general dont want this move and it will never be filled not ever so whats the point and its around 10 miles away which means it is not even an Aberdeen based football team anymore.
Most people on Facebook has said this many times over – Aberdeen FC can build the new stadium where it’s most relevant – not where some people may find it most financially attractive (to a very, very select few).
