Hampden Park, Glasgow

2.8
Hampden Park (often referred to as Hampden) is a football stadium in the Mount Florida area of Glasgow, Scotland. The 51,866-capacity venue serves as the national stadium of football in Scotland. It is the normal home venue of the Scotland national football team and Scottish League Two club Queen's Park. Hampden regularly hosts the latter stages of the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup competitions and has also been used for music concerts and other sporting events, such as when it was reconfigured as an athletics stadium for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

There were two 19th century stadia called Hampden Park, built on different sites. A stadium on the present site was first opened on 31 October 1903. Hampden was the biggest stadium in the world when it was opened, with a capacity in excess of 100,000. This was increased further between 1927 and 1937, reaching a peak of 150,000. The record attendance of 149,415, for a Scotland v England match in 1937, is the European record for an international football match. Tighter safety regulations meant that the capacity was reduced to 81,000 in 1977. The stadium has been fully renovated since then, with the most recent work being completed in 1999.

The stadium houses the offices of the Scottish Football Association (SFA) and Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL). Hampden has hosted prestigious sporting events, including three European Cup / Champions League finals, two Cup Winners' Cup finals and a UEFA Cup final. Hampden is a UEFA category four stadium and it is served by the nearby Mount Florida and King's Park railway stations.

  • My son took me up for a birthday treat yesterday.I've been to Hampden many times before but never to the museum or on a tour. I would recommend it to anyone. The guide was brilliant,very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Great day out.
  • Now I’m not a football fan at all but my partner & I visited here a few months ago for the Glasgow Vegan Festival and were not disappointed. Maybe this is more reviewing the festival but it was, for me, unmissable! The variety of vegan products on offer here had me in awe from the sweet treats to the clothing and everything in between. The venue it’s self was great and I’m so glad to have visited!
