As Hampden Park , three football stadiums in Glasgow , Scotland , used by FC Queen's Park , have been or are being referred to. The first soccer field, opened on June 9, 1867, is considered to be the oldest soccer stadium in the world. After another stopover, FC Queen's Park and the place name Hampden Park moved to their current location on October 31, 1903. The arena, which currently only has 51,866 seats, was considered the largest football stadium in the world for many years until the Estádio do Maracanã was opened in 1950 . Both stadiums used to have six-digit attendance figures, but this is no longer possible due to renovations and for safety reasons. On April 17, 1937, 149,547 visitors saw the international match between Scotland and England here, a record attendance that is still valid in Great Britain today, which was only exceeded in South America after the Second World War.
Curiously, two Frankfurt teams, Eintracht Frankfurt and Frankfurt Galaxy , each took part in finals for European titles in Hampden Park . The footballers lost the European Cup against Real Madrid with 3: 7 in front of 127,000 spectators in 1960 , but the footballers won the 2003 World Bowl against Rhein Fire .
In 2002 Bayer 04 Leverkusen lost the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid 2-1 in front of 52,000 spectators . This consolidated the dubious title of the eternal runner-up , as the works club had previously lost the DFB Cup final and also gambled away the championship title at the end of the season.
Olympic football tournament 2012
During the Olympic Games in 2012 , seven preliminary round games and one quarter-finals of the Olympic football tournament took place here.
Games at the 2021 European Football Championship
The stadium was designated as one of 12 venues across Europe for the 2021 European Football Championship . The tournament will have three group matches and a round of 16 at Hampden Park.
