The Hampden Roar Parliamentary Debate

Parliamentary Debate on the Hampden Roar

Yesterday in the Scottish Parliament a debate took place that marks a significant milestone for our grassroots campaign for the future of Hampden Park, Glasgow.

As an important voice of the campaign James Dornan explained in the Scottish Parliament

“Hampden Park is in this great Nation’s psyche. It has been an integral part of day to day life for Scotland since it’s construction in 1903”.

There were many passionate expressions of support for the campaign from across the chamber.

Johann Lamont said

“National funding and National pride have been invested in Hampden. Hampden attracts football, concerts and conferences and is also an important part of Glasgow’s success as one of the top sporting venues in the world. SFA must not make a short term decision.”

Also voicing their support for the Hampden Roar; Kenneth Gibson (Cunninghame North), Brian Whittle (South Scotland) Willie Coffey (Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley), George Adam (Paisley), Fulton MacGregor (Coatbridge and Chryston) and James Kelly (Glasgow)

There were many favourite Hampden moments recalled for the debate but what was important was the recognition that our heritage and memories make us who we are.

But it is not just about Glasgow. Any other country would give their right arm for the history, heritage and provenance of what Scotland has given to the footballing world including the development of the modern passing game that was created on this hallowed turf.

The Campaign Team’s sole focus is to ensure that the spiritual home of Scotland’s greatest achivements stands proud for generations to come. Therefore we are delighted to launch our new website dedicated to the preserving the most important element, which is the Hampden Roar itself. The combined magic of 50,000 fans celebrating, louder than any other stadium and sending a firm message.

Scotland invented football and Hampden is its home.
