Hampden Park is Scotland’s national football stadium located on the South side of Glasgow, and it is the home to all major football matches involving Scotland’s National Team. Therefore, Spectrum are on duty for all World Cup Qualifiers, European Championship Qualifiers, and friendly matches.
It is also the home of all Semi Finals and Cup Finals for the domestic game in Scotland, so we also provide services at each of these games. In addition, Hampden Park occasionally hosts major European finals like the Champion’s League Final, and at other times it has been used for special events like the 2012 London Olympics when it hosted some of the ladies football matches. Spectrum is proud to have played a part at each of these events.
We have worked with the management team at Hampden since 2007 to provide a range of services including, cleaning, waste management, facilities management, and soft FM services. We also provide some other specialist services when required, such as seat replacement.
Of course the calendar for these matches is created some time in advance, and we are very experienced in working in and around the stadium. However it is not always so straight forward, on certain occasions our events teams have to work to very demanding schedules. For domestic events such as Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup semi-finals, matches are played on consecutive days, therefore Spectrum teams have to clean and manage all waste from the first game in less than 24 hours, ensuring the stadium is perfectly presented for the next semi-final the following day.
Careful planning and expertly trained staff enable us to complete these duties in ample time to receive players, supporters, hospitality guests, and officials in good time to enjoy the match in a clean, safe, and comfortable environment.
Below is a short video featuring Brian Muir, Safety & Operations Manager, at Hampden Park, he explains the services we provide at Hampden Park, and why he is happy to work with Spectrum.
