ST Johnstone have closed the North Stand at McDiarmid Park for tomorrow’s clash with Aberdeen due to a burst water pipe.
A burst water main in the road-way at the rear of the North Stand has made it unsafe to use so it will be closed for the Premiership match with the Dons.
All Aberdeen fans who have pre-purchased North Stand tickets will now be accommodated in the South (Ormond) Stand at the opposite end of the stadium.
The row and seat numbers are the same in both stands and so existing row and seat numbers as shown on tickets for the North Stand should be used in the South Stand.
There are a small number of pay at the gate tickets available in that South Stand.
Aberdeen fans who have pre-purchased West Stand family deal tickets or who plan to use the pay at the gate facility in the West Stand are unaffected by this change.
Stewards will be on hand to provide assistance if required.
With ongoing road works near McDiarmid Park the Dons have also offered the following travel advise to the Red Army travelling to Perth for the game.
The advice reads: “As extensive trunk road creation and alteration continue to take place around McDiarmid Park, the following directions are for Aberdeen FC supporters who should follow these to help minimise delays to their journeys both before and after the game.
“From the Broxden roundabout follow the ‘”Football Stadium” signage all the way to the Inveralmond roundabout.
“After turning full circle at that roundabout and heading back south on the A9 take the first available slip road which is signed for the football stadium.
“At the top of this slip road there is an enforced left turn and after making this turn Aberdeen supporters should immediately move into the right hand filter lane (temporary signage will be in place indicating this) and enter the stadium car park by turning right.
“Away supporters’ cars and buses will be accommodated at the west side of the all-weather pitch adjacent to the stadium although is expected to fill up quickly so early arrival is advised. Once this area is full, this area of the car park will be closed and Aberdeen fans will require to find on-street parking.”
