Aberdeen City Council officers have recommended that plans for a new £50million stadium should be approved.
The proposed 20,000 seat Kingsford Stadium would be located between Kingswells and Westhill.
Councillors are expected to vote on the plans at a meeting on Monday.
And now a document released by the local authority has urged them to approve the move – subject to more than 30 conditions.
These include the stadium not being used to host non-sporting events, no events on a week night before 7pm, expanding the footway between Prime Four Business Park and the site as well as no sales of hot food within 150 metres of the ground.
AFC chairman, Stewart Milne, said: “We are very pleased that the planners are recommending approval of our planning application for a community sports hub, training facilities and new stadium at Kingsford. This is welcome news for the Club, our fans and the wider community who back our plans.
“The additional information supplied in the last few months has helped reinforce the strength of our economic case and the need for co-location. We believe it also underlined that Kingsford is the only viable, suitable and therefore deliverable site for the Club.
“As with any major planning application, there will inevitably be some conditions attached to this approval and our commitment to the Council and to the local community is that, should the Councillors grant consent, we will meet the conditions and work hard to address both the real and perceived issues particularly around transportation and traffic management.
“The club and its team of experts have now done everything we can and it is now up to our councillors to weigh up the recommendation along with all the information in the application.”
