    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hampden Bowling Club sits on the site of the 1st Hampden Park, home to Queens Park FC and Scotland’s National Team from 1873 to 1884. This was the world’s first purposefully built international football ground and template for all modern football stadia. Furthermore this is where the Scotch Professors developed the modern passing game of football and exported it to the world, which is now played or watched by 3.5 billion people.

    The Hampden Collection was established to promote and celebrate the 3 Hampden Parks and all that played on them. Our Artist-In-Residence, Ashley Rawson, has designed this mural for the rear wall of the Hampden Bowling Club Pavilion. This design not only includes this historic victory, clearly showing the dominance of Scottish Football at the time; but also depicts Scotland’s Andrew Watson, who is the world’s first black international player and played in this victory. Finally, this depicts Charles Campbell, a pioneer of Scottish football as President of Queens Park, SFA and one of Scotland’s greatest midfielders.

    The Ask

    The First Hampden Park is a monument to the gift that Scotland gave the world and the foundation stone of the modern game. We are looking for your contribution to make this project a reality, which will add to Glasgow’s existing mural trail and support the heritage of this site.

      Thanks to all the lovely folks at SP that guessed the time for the Dundonald 10k competition. The rain might have landed and canned the run but we are still going ahead with the challenge.
