    FAQ for Dundee United FC

Why are Dundee United fans known as 'Arabs'?

During the the severe winter of 62/63 Dundee United could only play a few matches because of the bad pitch conditions. For the match against Albion Rovers the management of the club tried everything possible to make the pitch playable. Hundreds of tons of sand were then spread on the pitch, so that not a blade of grass could be seen. The team played well and won the match 3-0. From then on they where known as 'The Arabs'.
