Their compact Tannadice Park stadium is the perfect venue for fast, exciting and atmosphere-packed matches, so football tickets for Dundee United home games in Scotland are always sought after.
And you can book a seat for this unique 102-year-old ground through Ticket4Football.com – the dedicated football tickets website.
Formed in 1909 and named Dundee Hibernian, the club changed to its present name in 1923. United have always played at Tannadice, which is only 160m from the Dens Park home of their city rivals Dundee – making them the two closest football stadia for senior clubs in the world.
Dundee United were not a major force in Scottish football until Jerry Kerr was appointed manager in 1959. He introduced a number of talented Scandinavian players to the club such as Orjan Persson and Finn Dossing and achieved some notable results in European competitions.
Indeed the Arabs, as they are nicknamed, have a 100 per cent record against Barcelona in European ties, having won all four of their matches against the Spanish giants – including two victories in the Nou Camp.
Jim McLean took over as United manager in 1971 and nine years later the club won their first trophy, the Scottish League Cup, which they retained in 1981.
In 1983 Dundee United won the Scottish Premier League title and the following season reached the semi-final of the European Cup before losing 3-2 on aggregate – and in controversial circumstances – to Roma.
In 1987 United reached the final of the UEFA Cup, where they lost 2-1 to Gothenburg on aggregate. But the sporting behaviour of their supporters saw the club receive the first-ever FIFA Fair Play Award.
The Terrors, as they are also known, won the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1994, with their second cup triumph coming in 2010 when they defeated Ross County 3-0 in the final.
Famous United players from the past include Walter Smith, Andy Gray, Paul Hegarty, David Narey and Paul Sturrock.
Their current squad, managed by Peter Houston, includes players from Slovakia (Dusan Pernis), Ghana (Prince Buaben), France (Morgaro Gomis) and Switzerland (Mihael Kovacevic).
The record attendance at Tannadice Park was set in 1966 when 28,000 packed its slopes to see the club defeat Barcelona in the Fairs Cities Cup.
The stadium's current capacity is 14,223 and football tickets for major Dundee United games are always in demand.
