Hampden Park, Scotland’s National Stadium, was the biggest stadium in the world when it was opened on its current site in 1903, 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.
Today the venue serves as the home venue of the Scotland National football team and amateur Scottish league club Queen’s Park F.C. and regularly hosts the latter stages of the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup competitions.
It has also played host to a wide variety of music concerts as well as other prestigious sporting events, such as when it was reconfigured as an athletics stadium for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
