Aberdeen's fixtures for the Premier Sports Cup group stages have been confirmed with the Dons set to be shown on TV twice during their run to the knockout stage.

The Reds discovered who they will be facing in Group A earlier this week, with ties against Queen of the South, East Kilbride, Airdrieonians and Dumbarton to kick off the Jimmy Thelin era.

He will be hoping for a smooth start to life at Pittodrie, but his first game in charge will be a long away day down the road in Dumfries for their group opener.

It's then all eyes on revenge as Aberdeen head south a week later to face East Kilbride, managed by former Darvel boss Mick Kennedy who masterminded the Scottish Cup upset in January 2023 with the West of Scotland League outfit.

Fans then make their return to Pittodrie after the summer break with a midweek evening clash against Airdrie, before rounding off the group days later at home against Dumbarton.

And for those who can't make it to the games, they will be in luck with the ties against Queen of the South and Airdrie set to be shown live on Premier Sports.
