Hampden Park, Scotland's national football stadium, holds several Scottish and European attendance records.
This article lists Scottish football attendance records under the categories listed below. The highest ever attendance for a UEFA competition match was in the 1969–70 European Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, Scotland's national stadium. A record 136,505 people attended the match between Celtic and Leeds United. The attendance of 149,415 for the Scotland vs. England international match of 1937 at Hampden Park is also a European record. The attendance of 147,365 for the 1937 Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Aberdeen at Hampden Park is a European record for a club match. Rangers' record attendance of 118,567 at Ibrox is a British record for a league match.
This is a list of all 42 Scottish Professional Football League clubs' record match attendances at their home ground. The vast majority of these records were achieved before the advent of all-seater stadia. The cost of building all-seater grounds, and a general decline in attendances, means the present capacities of the clubs stadiums are well below their record attendances. Some records were achieved at a club's previous ground, rather than their current location. For example, Clyde's record was set at Shawfield Stadium, whilst they have since moved to Broadwood Stadium. Records set while ground-sharing or at a venue other than the club's home stadium are not included. For example, Celtic were the home team when 136,505 attended their 1969–70 European Cup semi-final second leg match against Leeds United, but the match was played at Hampden Park, not Celtic Park. Rangers' record attendance of 118,567 is also the British record for a league match.
^Newspaper reports at the time indicate that the officially returned attendance was given as 83,500, with an estimated further 10,000 supporters locked out of the ground for safety reasons. However, the ground's capacity was gauged at the time as being around 88,000 and several subsequent sources (including the club's official website) have since revised the attendance up to 92,000.
^Bayview Park refers to the old East Fife stadium, in use prior to 1998, rather than the current Bayview Stadium.
^Inverness' record attendance of 9,530 set on 26 October 2004 was set at Pittodrie Stadium, where the club was ground-sharing with Aberdeen.
^Gretna's record attendance of 6,137 set on 16 January 2008 was set at Fir Park, where the club was ground-sharing with Motherwell.
^The tournament record was set in 1947 when Rangers overcame Hibernian in a semi-final before 123,830.
^The Southern League Cup was an unofficial competition held during World War II. The last edition in 1945–46, which despite its name was a nationwide tournament, was held after the end of the conflict, and is considered by winners Aberdeen to be a major trophy.
