Hampden v Murrayfield For National Team
Written by RockSport on January 31, 2018
The Scottish FA will choose between Hampden and Murrayfield as the home of the national team this summer.
A proposal to hold international matches and cup games at Ibrox or Celtic Park was rejected at a specially convened board meeting.
The SFA’s 20-year lease on Hampden expires in 2020, with a renewal option.
The governing body commissioned a feasibility study to consider all of its options for moving away from the national stadium.
The study also considered the pros and cons of staying at Hampden – that case being put by its owners Queens Park FC
Celtic Park and Ibrox each hosted one match during the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, and internationals have been held at both grounds previously.
