Aberdeen has a range of sports on offer. You are sure to find something that suits you!
The Granite City is home to Aberdeen Football Club, a team that has won two European trophies. 'The Dons' compete in the Scottish Premiership, Cup competitions and the Europa League. Take a trip to Pittodrie on a Saturday afternoon to watch the Reds in action.
Just over the road from Pittodrie is the home of Aberdeen Lynx, an ice hockey team who play in the Scottish National League and are former play-off champions. This is a fast and exciting sport that is well worth a watch.
