Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and was the venue for the first ever international football game: Scotland 0-0 England, 1872. A port city, situated on the river Clyde, Glasgow is approximately 70km from Edinburgh and one-hour flight from London and has two major airports which are complemented by an extensive public transport network. Glasgow is a cosmopolitan city with international and more traditional food options, and was also named as one of PETA’s most vegan and vegetarian-friendly UK cities.
Hampden Park is Scotland’s National Stadium and the legendary home of Scottish football. Originally opened in 1903, Hampden has been developed throughout the years to retain its iconic status within the global game. The noise, energy and atmosphere created by Hampden’s crowd ensures the stadium continues to maintain an envious track record in creating lifetime memories. In recent years, Hampden has hosted hundreds of football matches, including domestic cup finals, the 2002 UEFA Champions League Final, the 2007 UEFA Cup Final and, of course, Scotland’s international matches. Olympic Football was played at Hampden in 2012, the Stadium welcomed 500,000 people over eight days in 2014 for Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games, and Hampden remains Scotland’s stadium of choice for the world’s leading music acts.
