if queens park get all the money from there games at hampden, they will be very well off by the end of the season.

rough guestimate-

20000 x 12 = 240k x 2 = 1/2mil probs run their club for the next 10 yrs

So if a stadiums capacity is say 4,000 and they expect around 400 home fans would they allow us to fill up the rest of the stadium and have a majority of away fans?

Really, we could have 3600 away fans v 400 home fans in a 4,000 seater, that'd be great :lol:

Its Queens Parks stadium and they rent it out.

The SFA formed a company to give them a loan to regenerate the stadium and Queens Park pay the loan back. Money essentially goes to Queens Park, but it would go to repaying the loan to the SFA.

Is it not actually Queens Park who own the ground?

Yes. I said a few weeks ago that most games for the next 3 years at least is going to be like a home game for our team.

I seriously doubt it. On a side note, Queens Park used to be the biggest team in Scotland and am quite sure when they first started, they went a number of years without losing a game, winning everything. Anyone know what happened to them? And dont just say, it was because we came along, I genuinelly want to know what happened to a massive Glasgow club, that Partic Thistle are now bigger than.

Not really amazing when you read the early history of Scottish football, they were unbeatable. Most of the national team came from their side. Does anyone know how long they were in existance for until they lost their first match?

Basically they stayed amateur, instead of going professional, when others did.
