Formed in 1903 from the amalgamation of a number of clubs from Aberdeen, they have historically been one of the most successful Scottish teams. Alex Ferguson was a highly successful manager of the team in the 1980s, guiding them to three league championships, and famously to victory in the 1983 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, defeating Real Madrid in the final.
Aberdeen play at Pittodrie, which has a capacity of 22,199 and was the first all-seater and all-covered stadium in the UK. Aberdeen were also the first team to introduce the 'dug-out'.
Aberdeen Football Club are one of Scotland's most successful football teams and are also one of only three Scottish league teams that have been in existence since before the First World War (Rangers and Celtic are the other ones) who have never been relegated.
The current Aberdeen FC was born out of the merger of three city clubs; Aberdeen, Victoria United and Orion. A public meeting on March 20, 1903 was attended by more than 1,600 citizens, and on that date the amalgamation issue was discussed and given the go-ahead. On April 14 that same year the merger was made official and Aberdeen Football Club was born.
The merger allowed Aberdeen (wearing an all-white kit) to seriously entertain thoughts of joining the Scottish Football League, but had to settle with spending its inaugural season in the Northern League having narrowly failed to gain admission to the First Division.
