it would be very interesting to know how much Hampden pk has reduced in size, because the new stands look miles smaller than that terracing, i wonder if i can superimpose one photo onto another!

ok, it actually doesn't look much smaller now, certainly not down from 160 000 to 52 000; i guess they used to jam-pack the spectators in, without any regard to safety issues, thus the terracing looks so vast; it's a kind of optical illusion!

it's true capacity was probably only about 65 000 by modern standards, but it looks so vast in those black and white photos....most odd!

The old Wembley was similar in that respect. When it was built it held 127,000 but nearly 200,000 got in to see the F.A cup final between Bolton and West Ham. By the late ninties Wembley's capacity was down to about 74,000.

GLASGOW - Hampden Park (52,103)

Are there any plans to increase capacity for the Commonwealth games?

I should think so.

Hampden Park will sacrifice around 5000 seats in order to accomodate the running track for the 2014 games. With the National team performing well all games have been sell outs and UEFA are looking to increase the minumum capacity for Champions League finals from 50,000 to 70,000. Three great reasons to expand!

On the West side of the stadium (Rangers end) there is a large area known as Lesser Hampden which could allow for expansion. On the East side (Celtic end) there is also room for expansion. I'd imagine carrying on the second tier from the South stand would be the best option.

NB. this map is upside down

The bid, certainly, does not involve an expansion of Hampden - I believe that the plan is to have a capacity of around 46,000 for the stadium. Personally, I feel that a lack of stadium expansion at this time (i.e. when investment and time is available) would be a very big missed opportunity for Hampden and the SFA. That said, I think the capacity of the City of Manchester Stadium was under 40,000 so I'm not sure there these games could necessary be a suitable or realistic catalyst for such expansion.

The SFA have already talked of expanding it (about 2 weeks ago) to atleast a 70,000 seater. It really needs to become larger with the fans closer to the pitch. Hopefully we will get some government funding this time!!

Cinosnap, about a quarter of the Hampden redevelopment was funded by various Exchequer bodies. I think the £30 odd million that the SFA were granted by the lottery and this £18 million from the Exchequer when redeveloping Hampden Park was more than enough when compared with Murrayfield which was developed, fully, from private finance. More than half of the redevelopment costs of Hampden were provide by these two agencies - £48 million of some £70 million. In terms of it, I don't think any footballing body actually paid anything towards Hampden park as the other £22 million was raised by private donors and the sale of debentures. Unless it would be used at the games (and given the 38,000 capacity of the City of Manchester stadium, I really doubt it would be) I really don't feel it should be the domain of the government to get involved financially. If it does, the much more financially strapped SRU, whose problems, mostly, stem from the post-Taylor Murrayfield redevelopment, would have serious grounds for complaint.
