During the London 2012 Games, Hampden Park will host a total of eight Olympic Football matches, with action in both the men's and women's competitions.
How will the local area be affected?
- London 2012 is aiming for 100% of ticketed spectators to travel to competition venues by public transport, walk or cycle so train services and bus routes will be busier than usual. A range of spectator transport services a range of transport options will be provided including additional shuttle buses, park and ride sites and enhanced rail services
- Spectators are encouraged to arrive at the ground at least 2 hours before the match starts so residents may notice spectators gathering at the venue earlier than at a usual football match at the ground
- There will be temporary changes to traffic and parking restrictions, however pedestrian routes will not be restricted
- Football matches and other events at Hampden Park usually take place at the weekend, or in the evening. During the Olympic Games, some matches will take place on weekdays and during the daytime.
