Glasgow
Did you know that Hampden Park is the oldest international football stadium in the world and until the Maracana in Rio was built in 1950 it was the largest stadium in the world? It dates from October 1903, though there are few if any vestiges of that original structure. As well as being the base of Scotland’s national football team it is the home ground for Queen’s Park .
