In 2020, Scottish fans will have the chance to witness future iconic moments first-hand as Hampden Park plays host to four UEFA EURO 2020 matches

Hampden will host a series of competitive fixtures on the 15, 19, 23 and 30 June 2020. To ensure as many Scottish fans as possible feel part of the tournament – even if they can’t visit the stadium – EventScotland and the Scottish FA have teamed up to tour ‘The Hampden Roar.’

Starting on Saturday, 12 October, ‘The Hampden Roar’ is an exciting family-friendly exhibition featuring five interactive zones that will also visit Dundee, Inverness, Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

Families will be able to enjoy a number of fun-filled activities, with a playing area for children with dribbling competitions, penalty kicks and football trivia areas. 

There will also be an Iconic Moments zone – a travelling museum exhibiting precious artefacts from the Scottish Football Museum, a selfie area and a Fans First zone which will capture Scots fans greatest and most iconic moments from the tournament’s history. 

Included in one of the five dedicated zones will be the coveted trophy of the UEFA European Championship, the Henri Delaunay Cup, last won by Portugal during the 2016 tournament.
