Schools and Community Ticket Guide

The response to Queen’s Park’s ‘Free Tickets for Community’ initiative for their Championship fixture with Hamilton Academical this Saturday, December 3, has been truly remarkable.

Whilst Head Coach Owen Coyle and his team will be doing their best to win the game on the Hampden pitch, the club are really looking forward to welcoming children and families from around Glasgow off the pitch.

Over 30 schools and over 15 community groups will be in attendance as The Spiders return to the Southside of Glasgow and we want to ensure that the Match Day experience is a great one for all of our guests.

We have put together a guide for people who are watching Queen’s Park for the first ever time, or who are bringing along someone to take in a game for the first time, which we trust you will find helpful.

Match Tickets
Everybody needs to have an individual Match Ticket. Entry to the game is on a one person per ticket basis. One adult bringing along a child will need two tickets in total and so on.

Your ticket will have a Block area on it.

Your ticket will be for one of the following blocks P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6 as well as I3 and I6. You are required to sit in the Block your ticket is for however the game will be operating on an unallocated seating basis and there are no restrictions on where you can sit in your Block.

We expect these areas to be busy so please ‘budge up’ and do not leave gaps in between seats where possible.

Getting to The National Stadium at Hampden Park
We would encourage everyone to walk or use public transport to Hampden which is situated at G42 9BA. There will be some Car Parking available however spaces will be limited.

You can gain entry from 2 pm and we advise everyone to arrive as close to that time as they can.

The Turnstiles you should use for Blocks P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6 are situated at the front of The Main Stand and towards the Cathcart Road end of the National Stadium.

The Turnstiles you should use for blocks I3 and I6 are also situated at the front of The Main Stand however they are towards the Aitkenhead Road end of the National Stadium.

Please scan the QR code on your Match Ticket using the handheld scanner when you approach the turnstile.

There will be Stewards in place to help things run smoothly and we would advise that they may wish to search items such as bags before entry is allowed and we would ask for your co-operation in this.

To mark the unique nature of this match and to help entertain the children before kick-off there will be Face Painters and a Busker in the Main Stand concourse.

There will also be some Gifts for the first 1,000 children who arrive – another reason to come early.

Food and Drink
Hampden now operates as a cashless stadium. Kiosks for refreshments only accept cards as a form of payment so please bear this in mind.

In line with Ground Regulations please do not bring containers such as water bottles or cans as they are not allowed to be taken in.

Hopefully, we have provided all the information you need to enjoy the game on Saturday.

We look forward to seeing you.
