For most of Aberdeen's players this was their first ever game on an Astroturf pitch. For Tommy McMillan it was not a new experience as he had played at the Astrodome on AstroTurf on 4th July 1967 against Bangu of Brazil. That match was billed as being between the Houston Stars and the Washington Whips.
