The match, along with Aberdeen against Kilmarnock at Pittodrie Stadium, have been selected as tests to allow fans back into stadiums again.

Both Ross County and Aberdeen submitted detailed operational plans for the safe access and egress of supporters.

The clubs will also provide a post-match report on operational delivery to inform guidance for future pilots and the general resumption of supporters outlined in the Scottish Government Route Map out of the COVID-19 crisis.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “We are pleased to have received confirmation of pilot events at two Scottish Premiership fixtures on September 12.

“We look forward to building on the successful all-sport supporter pilot at BT Murrayfield and I know that clubs take the responsibility for the safe return of supporters seriously.

"This is another significant step forward for Scottish football and I reiterate the importance of fans to our national game.

“The Joint Response Group will continue to liaise with all clubs, and especially the home clubs, in the coming week to ensure all protocols and guidance are adhered to and that fans can look forward to a phased return to supporting their respective teams.”
