Hampden Park, Glasgow
Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland
This evening, I am focusing on the strong football (soccer) tradition in Glasgow, Scotland.  Glasgow is home of the two local ‘giants’, Celtic and Rangers, plus the Hampden Park National Stadium.
 
Hampden is actually owned by an amateur team called Queen’s Park F.C. and leased to the Scottish Football Association. This stadium was refurbished in 1999 and stages national and international football matches. Tours of the stadium and museum are available to visitors.
