Join me on a virtual tour around Hampden Park from the comfort of your own home.
Hampden Park is located in the southside of Glasgow, and holds every European attendance record. This is actually the third reincarnation of the ground, the other two sit very close by and we'll have more on that on the tour. Our national stadium has hosted some of the greatest , and most controversial, European Cup Finals. On multiple occasions it has become a battle ground for supporters of Celtic & Rangers. And this little corner of football history became the building blocks that launched the career of one, Andrew Henry Robertson. The ground is home to the Scotland national team and Scotland oldest association football club, Queen's Park.
Queen's Park were formed in 1867 and paved the way for modern football with their own, unique passing style. They were inventors of many association rules and were the driving force behind the first ever international fixture. For 152 years the mighty Queen's maintained amateur statues while playing in the professional set-up but this all changed in 2020.
This 1-hour tour will take you on a journey outside the ground. You will see the stadium front, including the many Scotland legends emblazoned on the walls, the Queen's Park crest outside The Spiders HQ, Lesser Hampden & the Andy Robertson mural.
On this tour you will be entertained with stories about:
- World, and European, attendance records
