Hampden Park
Hampden Park
(often referred to as Hampden) is a football stadium in the Mount Florida
Mount Florida
area of Glasgow, Scotland. The 51,866-capacity[1] venue serves as the national stadium of football in Scotland. It is the normal home venue of the Scotland national football team
Scotland national football team
and amateur Scottish league club Queen's Park F.C.
Queen's Park F.C.
and regularly hosts the latter stages of the Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
and Scottish League Cup competitions. It is also 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
Scotland
v England
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
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
Mount Florida
and King's Park railway stations.

History[edit] Three Hampdens[edit] Queen's Park, the oldest club in Scottish football, have played at a venue called Hampden Park
Hampden Park
since October 1873.[3][4] The first Hampden Park was overlooked by a nearby terrace named after Englishman John Hampden, who fought for the roundheads in the English Civil War.[3][4] Queen's Park played at the first Hampden Park

The remains of Cathkin Park, which was the site of the second Hampden Park.

The club moved to the second Hampden Park, 150 yards from the original, because the Cathcart District Railway

planned a new line through the site of the ground's western terrace.[4][6] A lawn bowling club at the junction of Queen's Drive and Cathcart Road marks the site of the first Hampden.[3] The second Hampden Park

fixture in 1894.[3] In the late 1890s, Queen's Park requested more land for development of the second Hampden Park.[4][5] This was refused by the landlords, which led to the club seeking a new site.[4][5] Henry Erskine Gordon agreed to sell 12 acres of land off Somerville Drive to Queen's Park in November 1899.[7][8] James Miller designed twin grandstands along the south side of the ground[8] with a pavilion wedged in between.[3] The natural slopes were shaped to form banks of terracing, designed by Archibald Leitch.[3] Construction of the new ground took over three years to complete; during construction, a disaster occurred at Ibrox in which part of the wooden terraces collapsed.[8] In response, the terraces at Hampden were firmly set in the earthwork and innovative techniques were used to control spectators.[8] Third Lanark A.C.
Third Lanark A.C.
took over the second Hampden Park
Hampden Park
in 1903 and renamed it Cathkin Park.[3] The club rebuilt the ground from scratch due to a failure to agree a fee for the whole stadium.[5][7] Third Lanark went out of business in 1967 and Cathkin Park
Cathkin Park
is now a public park with much of the original terracing still evident.[3][5] Hampden Park
Hampden Park
was the biggest stadium in the world from its opening in 1903 until it was surpassed by the Maracanã in 1950.[6] Along with Celtic Park
Celtic Park
and Ibrox, the city of Glasgow
Glasgow
possessed the three largest football stadia in the world at the time Hampden opened.[3] In the stadium's first match, on 31 October 1903, Queen's Park defeated Celtic 1–0 in the Scottish league.[3][6][7][9] The first Scottish Cup Final played at the ground was an Old Firm
Old Firm
match in 1904, attracting a record Scottish crowd of 64,672.[9] The first Scotland
Scotland
v England
England
match at the ground was played in April 1906 with 102,741 people in attendance, which established Hampden as the primary home of the Scotland
Scotland
team.[10] Record attendances[edit] Attendances continued to increase during the remainder of the 1900s, as 121,452 saw the 1908 Scotland
Scotland
v England
England
match.[10] The two Old Firm matches played for the 1909 Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final attracted a total of 131,000.[10] After the second match there was a riot because there was confusion over what would happen next when the second match also ended in a draw.[11] The fans believed that the replay would be played to a conclusion and demanded that a period of extra time be played.[11] The Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
trophy was withheld as Hampden was not in a fit condition to host a second replay.[12] In response to the riot, the Scottish Football Association decided not to use Hampden as the Scottish Cup Final venue until after the First World War.[13] Queen's Park conducted extensive ground improvements after the 1909 riot.[13] A new world record of 127,307 were in attendance to see Scotland
Scotland
play England
England
in 1912.[14] A fire in 1914 destroyed the pavilion, which was replaced by a four-storey structure with a press box on the roof.[3] The Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final returned to Hampden in 1920, when a large crowd of 95,000 saw Kilmarnock win the cup against Albion Rovers.[15] Record crowds attended the 1925 Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final, a 5–0 win for Celtic against Rangers,[16] and the 1927 Scotland
Scotland

match, England's first win in the stadium.[17] Hampden became the sole venue of the Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final after 1925[3] except in the 1990s when it was being renovated. Queen's Park purchased more land in 1923 to bring the total to 33 acres.[3] 25,000 places were added to the terraces and rigid crush barriers were installed in 1927.[3] World record crowds attended Scotland
Scotland
matches against England
England
in 1931 and 1933.[18] In 1933, Austria, who had beaten Scotland
Scotland
5–0 in Vienna
Vienna
in 1931, became the first foreign national side to visit Hampden Park.[18] Further ground improvements increased the official capacity of the ground to 183,388 in 1937, but the SFA were only allowed to issue 150,000 tickets for games.[19] The 1937 Scotland
Scotland
v England
England
match had an official attendance of 149,415, but at least 20,000 more people entered the ground without tickets.[19] A week later the 1937 Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final between Celtic and Aberdeen drew an official crowd of 147,365, with 20,000 more people locked outside.[19] Wartime[edit] During the Second World War, matches at heavily attended grounds were initially prohibited due to the fear of aerial bombing by the Luftwaffe.[20] Scottish national league and cup competitions were suspended for the duration of the war, but regional league and cup competitions were established in their place.[20] Attendance was initially restricted to 50 percent of capacity; therefore, when 75,000 attended a wartime cup final in May 1940, it was the maximum permitted.[21] The Parashots, a forerunner of the Home Guard, set up a command post at Lesser Hampden
Lesser Hampden
in 1940.[21] A government official presented an order demanding that both the Hampden and Lesser Hampden pitches be ploughed and used to plant vegetables, but the Queen's Park committee chose to ignore the order and the government did not pursue it.[21] Wartime internationals were played at Hampden, and 91,000 saw Scotland
Scotland
beat England
England
5–4 on 18 April 1942.[21] Post-war[edit] After the Second World War
Second World War
ended in 1945, Hampden started to host Scotland
Scotland
matches more frequently.[22] Before then, Hampden had only hosted 15 matches against England
England
and one match each against Austria and Czechoslovakia.[23] During the post-war attendance boom, Hampden was the only stadium big enough to host the crowds who wanted to see the team.[22] Matches that would have ordinarily attracted a crowd of 40,000 were being attended by nearly 100,000.[24] The Hampden fixture list was also expanded by the new Scottish League Cup competition.[24] In 1947, Rangers defeated Aberdeen in the first League Cup Final.[24] A fire on 25 December 1945 destroyed the stadium press box and damaged offices.[22] The press box was replaced with a plainer two-storey structure that overhung the pitch.[25] The capacity of the ground was cut to 135,000 following the Burnden Park disaster

in Bolton.[25] The re-entry of the Home Nations

in 1947 was marked by a match between a Great Britain and a Rest of Europe select on 10 May 1947.[26] Great Britain won 6–1 and 130,000 people attended.[26] Unusually, a league match between Third Lanark and Hibernian was played immediately afterwards at Hampden because Cathkin Park
Cathkin Park
was undergoing repair work.[26] The first FIFA
FIFA
World Cup qualification match played at Hampden was a 2–0 win for Scotland
Scotland
against Wales
Wales
on 9 November 1949; this match was also part of the 1950 British Home Championship.[27] The win appeared to guarantee Scotland
Scotland
qualification for the 1950 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup because the top two finishers in the Championship were offered places in the tournament, but the SFA decreed that they would only send a team if they were British champions.[28] Scotland
Scotland
only needed a draw against England

at Hampden to meet that condition but lost 1–0.[28] The Coronation Cup, a competition to mark the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, was held in Glasgow

Scotland
hosted the Magical Magyars of Hungary

Hampden hosted the 1960 European Cup Final; Real Madrid defeated 7–3 Eintracht Frankfurt
Eintracht Frankfurt
with 130,000 people in attendance.[34][35] Floodlights were installed at Hampden in 1961 and were inaugurated with a friendly match between Eintracht Frankfurt
Eintracht Frankfurt
and Rangers.[36] The ground then also hosted the 1962 and 1966 finals of the European Cup Winners' Cup.[36] The attendances for each of these finals was less than 50,000,[37] and the SFA did not offer to host another European final until the 1976 European Cup Final, in which Bayern Munich defeated St Etienne.[38][39] Until 1987, Hampden used square goalposts.[39][40] St Etienne believed that two of their efforts which hit the square crossbar and rebounded into play would have resulted in goals if it had been round.[39][40] After Celtic won the 1967 European Cup Final, the home leg of their Intercontinental Cup tie against Racing Club was held at Hampden.[41] Celtic won 1–0 at Hampden, but lost the tie after a play-off in Montevideo.[41] In 1970, Celtic played in the semi-finals of the European Cup against English league champions, Leeds United.[42] Celtic chose to move their home leg of the tie from their Celtic Park home to Hampden, which had a far greater capacity.[42] A crowd of 136,505, a record for any match in UEFA competition, saw Celtic win 2–1 (3–1 on aggregate) to advance to the 1970 European Cup Final.[42] Celtic also played European Cup ties against Ajax[43] and Rosenborg[38] at Hampden during the 1970s. A fire was deliberately started in the south stand in October 1968, destroying offices, 1,400 seats and one of the team dressing rooms.[25][44] The fire caused the 1968–69 Scottish League Cup Final to be postponed until April.[44] By 1970 Hampden was starting to age as a stadium.[34] Wembley had been revamped for the 1966 World Cup, while other major stadia were being constructed for tournaments.[34] Public safety was emphasized after the Ibrox disaster of January 1971, when 66 spectators were crushed to death.[45] A benefit match was played at Hampden, while the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975 compelled stadium authorities to obtain licences from local officials, impose crowd segregation and restrict attendances.[46][47] Pittodrie and Ibrox were converted into all-seater stadiums, while Hampden's capacity was reduced to 81,000.[25][48] Scotland

scored a goal in a 3–1 win for the visitors.[43][50] Redevelopment[edit] During the late 1970s, it became apparent that the facilities at Hampden were in need of renewal.[51][52] As an amateur club, Queen's Park could not possibly fund the works,[25] while Glasgow
Glasgow
District Council withdrew funding and the UK Government decided not to fund it either.[51][52] Queen's Park considered selling Hampden,[25] but a public appeal and minor repair work kept Hampden open during the 1980s.[51] The riot after the 1980 Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final prompted reforms, as alcohol was banned from football stadia in Scotland.[53][54] The first phase of the redevelopment involved the demolition of the North Stand, the concreting of all terraces and the building a block of turnstiles around the upper section of the East Terrace.[55] This work, begun in October 1981 and completed in 1986, reduced the capacity to 74,370 and cost £3 million.[55] A second phase had been planned to begin in 1988, but the release of the Taylor Report
Taylor Report
caused the plans to be redrawn and the proposed costs escalated to £25 million.[55] Scotland
Scotland
hosted the 1989 FIFA

Hampden hosted football at the 2012 Summer Olympics, including this match between Honduras and Morocco.

After the cancellation of the annual Scotland
Scotland
v England
England
fixture in 1989, questions were raised as to whether Scottish football required a separate national stadium.[55] Rangers proposed Ibrox as an alternative venue, while Murrayfield was about to be redeveloped without public funding.[52][55][57] None of these arguments impressed the National Stadium
Stadium
committee, which consisted of the SFA, Scottish Football League and Queen's Park.[55] The West Terrace was converted to seating in 1991 for only £700,000, but this left two terraces and therefore disqualified Hampden from hosting FIFA
FIFA
World Cup qualification matches.[55] The UK Government eventually provided a grant of £3.5 million in 1992, which allowed work to begin on a £12 million project to convert Hampden into an all-seater stadium.[51][55][58] The last match played in front of the sloping terraces was the 1992 Scottish League Cup Final.[56] Within a year, the east and west ends of the ground had been replaced and the partially rebuilt Hampden was re-opened for a friendly match between Scotland
Scotland
and Netherlands
Netherlands
on 23 March 1994.[55] It was then also used for the later stages of the 1993–94 Scottish Cup competition.[59] As the capacity of the old South Stand had been limited to 4,500, the total capacity of Hampden had been reduced to approximately 37,000.[55] With Celtic Park
Celtic Park
also undergoing extensive redevelopment to become all-seater, Celtic spent the 1994–95 season groundsharing at Hampden, at a cost of £500,000 rent.[60] The final stage of the renovation began in November 1997, with its £59 million cost funded by the National Lottery.[52][35][61] There was a cost overrun[52] and a fraud squad investigated alleged financial irregularities.[62] The South Stand was replaced and the stadium was re-opened for the 1999 Scottish Cup
Scottish Cup
Final.[63] The ground now has a capacity of 51,866.[1] Queen's Park retained ownership of the ground, with the SFA holding a lease due to run until 2020.[64]

women's national football team game was played at Hampden for the first time, when it hosted the first leg of a European Championship qualifying playoff against Spain.[71] Hampden was temporarily converted into an athletics stadium for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.[72][73] It hosted its last international game before the conversion work on 15 November 2013 and Queen's Park are playing their home games at the Excelsior Stadium
Stadium
in Airdrie.[74][75] Due to the works being carried out at the Olympic Stadium, the 2014 London Grand Prix
London Grand Prix
was renamed the Glasgow
Glasgow
Grand Prix and hosted by Hampden.[76] The conversion works involved the removal of eight rows of seating, which reduced the capacity to 44,000.[2] Hampden was converted back into a football stadium after the Commonwealth Games.[77][78] In September 2014, Hampden was one of 13 venues chosen to host matches in the UEFA Euro 2020
UEFA Euro 2020
tournament.[79] With their lease on Hampden due to expire after Euro 2020, the SFA canvassed opinion from its member clubs about where games should be played.[80] Hampden Roar[edit] The football match crowd at Hampden were renowned for creating the Hampden Roar and trying to terrify opposing teams. The stadium's capacity exceeded 100,000 from the early 1900s until the 1980s and the Roar could be heard whenever Scotland
Scotland
scored an important goal.[52] After the renovation of the stadium and the reduced capacities, the roar has become more muted.[52] The Hampden Roar was first noticed in a game against England
England
in 1929.[81] Scotland, who had played the second half with ten players due to an injury to Alex Jackson, equalised in the final minute with a goal from Alec Cheyne direct from a corner kick.[81] The roar that followed the goal was so loud that Jackson, who was a mile away in the Glasgow
Glasgow
Victoria Infirmary, could tell that Scotland
Scotland
had scored.[81] The phrase Hampden Roar is also used as rhyming slang.[52] People from Glasgow
Glasgow
may ask, "What's the Hampden?", by which they mean "What is the score?" or "How are you?".[52] Structure and facilities[edit] Hampden is an all-seated bowl stadium, although the ground is split into four geographic sections, officially known as the North, East, South and West Stands.[82] Due to the dominance of the Old Firm
Old Firm
within Scottish football and their regular qualification for cup matches played at Hampden, the East and West stands are commonly known as the Celtic and Rangers ends.[83][84] The East Stand has 12,800 seats on a single tier of 53 rows.[55] The two end stands are up to 140 metres away from the pitch, due to Hampden retaining its bowl shape after it was redeveloped.[85] This distance is almost as great as if Hampden included an athletics track, although the distance between the pitch and the two side stands is more comparable to a normal football stadium.[85] The South Stand is the main stand of the stadium, as it holds the technical areas, dressing rooms, indoor warm-up area, executive boxes,[86] lounges[87] and media facilities. It has been sponsored by BT Scotland
Scotland
since 1998.[88] The South Stand is also the only part of the stadium split into two tiers, although there is also a small gallery above the North Stand that has 290 seats and access to lounges.[82][85] The North Stand accommodates 9,100 spectators in 46 rows.[85] The total capacity of the stadium is 51,866.[1][5] The capacity was temporarily reduced to 44,000 for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, as the running track raised the field level by 1.9 metres.[72]

The redeveloped Hampden has held the top status with the various UEFA stadium categories,[6] holding category four status. The Scottish Football Museum, which opened in 2001, is located within Hampden.[89][90] Part of the museum is the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.[89] A distinctive feature of the old Hampden, the press box which sat on the roof of the old South Stand,[91] is also exhibited at the museum.[90] The offices of the Scottish Football Association, Scottish Premier League

and Scottish Football League

are all located within Hampden.[92] Lesser Hampden
Lesser Hampden
is a football stadium located immediately beside the western end of Hampden Park. The ground was constructed in the early 1920s after additional ground was purchased to expand the main stadium.[3][93] Queen's Park proposed in 1990 to sell off Lesser Hampden to fund redevelopment works on the main stadium, but this was rejected by planners.[55] It is used by Queen's Park for training, reserve team matches and youth football.[7] Lesser Hampden

Scottish Cup
Final between Celtic and Aberdeen drew an official crowd of 147,365, a world record for a club match, with 20,000 more people locked outside.[6][19] Hampden set world attendance records that year that were only surpassed by the Maracanã,[19] and it still holds all the major European records.[6][113] The European Cup match between Celtic and Leeds United in 1970 was attended by 136,505, which is a UEFA competition record.[6][113] Since the redevelopment of Hampden was completed in 1999, the capacity for sporting events is now limited to 52,063. Attendances for concerts can be higher than this as people are allowed onto the pitch area. In 2009, more people attended concerts at Hampden than football matches.[35] Hampden regularly has crowds of below 1,000 for Queen's Park matches in the lower divisions of the Scottish football league system.[114] Queen's Park have not played in the top division of Scottish football since 1958.[30] Transport[edit] The nearest railway stations are Mount Florida
