The virtual and silent mouse click replaces the familiar audible click of a well-oiled turnstile and in entering this virtual Pittodrie you'll find information on the proud history and heritage of our shared passion.

We guarantee you'll be kept occupied for hours, whether you are an insatiable anorak for statistics, a passing browser or someone who needs a particular nugget of information to settle a pub argument or to answer that niggling question that keeps you awake at night.

It's not all statistics though - we'll be keeping the site up to date with news of Trust events, updates on Dons-related memorabilia we've tracked down or which has been gifted to us or loaned to us for The Aberdeen Collectionę and we'll regularly put in the spotlight items of interest to Reds and followers of the Black and Golds.

Even fans of other clubs are guaranteed to find something of interest here and are welcomed warmly by the Trust. Just wipe your feet on your way in.

The AFC Heritage Trust is independent of the Club and is managed by volunteer Trustees and is supported by Patrons and Friends of the Trust. The whole thing will only work with the active backing of supporters from all around the world and this means we need your donations follow the link to see what this really means.
