From some of Scotland’s finest hospitality through to event space hire, the venue in Glasgow has a reputation that precedes the experience.
Hampden Park History
The popularity of Hampden Park comes from the heritage and history in both the local area, within Scotland and across the global sporting world.
At almost 120 years old, Hampden Park is the oldest stadium in the world and has seen everything (including a Champions League final in 2002).
First opened in 1903 and named after English Parliamentarian Civil War soldier, John Hampden, who fought for the Roundheads in the 17th century and spent most of the 20th Century as one of the world’s biggest football stadiums, since reduced due to the introduction of seating but maintaining the air of spectacle upon arrival and entrance to the stadium.
The first match between Queen’s Park and Celtic was played out to a 1-0 victory for the hosts.
To this day, Hampden Park Glasgow remains home to the Scottish national football team and Scottish Cup finals – as well as being a core venue in Scotland.
