Aberdeen FC Women head coach Emma Hunter wants the Dons to make Cormack Park feel like home.
The women’s side will play all their home games at the training campus this season, starting with the SWPL Cup match against Hearts tomorrow.
They spent last season training and playing at Aberdeen Sports Village, around the corner from Pittodrie, prior to the opening of the new facility in the autumn.
Hunter said: “For the last year we’ve been moving around, in terms of where we’re training and playing, so having somewhere constant to train and play is a massive bonus.
“We can do our pre-match preparation, video analysis in the hub before going out to training. We have the performance gym right next to the training pitch, so injured players can do their work in there while the team goes out to train. It’s been a massive boost for us.
“The facilities are fantastic and with it being 3G, it gives us that security of games going ahead. It’s a real sense of home and you feel like you have a slight advantage.”
Their first game in the competition was due to be away to Stirling University last week but the game was postponed due to bad weather. Hunter is optimistic this weekend’s game will get the go-ahead, despite a fresh storm front due to hit the country.
She added: “The preparation has been on and off as the weather keeps throwing us off.
“We had a short window to get pre-season done so all the preparation had gone towards that date. We just want to get that first game out of the way.”
