SPFL cut Aberdeen's cup semi-final ticket allocation
The SPFL have reduced the size of the Dons' Hampden section after poor sales.
Aberdeen have had their ticket allocation for the League Cup semi-final with Rangers reduced by the SPFL due to poor ticket sales.
Originally, the Dons were allocated 20,300 tickets for the Hampden showdown but that number has been reduced as the Pittodrie side have sold just over 9000 tickets to date.
As a result, the SPFL have taken back Aberdeen's section of the East Stand, with some supporters now needing to be relocated to the South Stand instead.
The Dons say they still have 5,500 tickets to sell, with access to more available if the requisite demand can be demonstrated in the coming days.
A statement on the club's website said: "Despite strong initial sales, particularly from our supporters' clubs, overall ticket sales for the match have fallen short of the demand expected.
"Given current sales figures, with the SPFL recording less than 100 being sold by Aberdeen FC today, the SPFL have now taken back certain sections of the East Stand.
"The focus now quickly turns to building on the tickets that have been sold to fulfil the remainder of our allocation and ensure that the team walk out to a wall of noise from Dons supporters in attendance."
