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.

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.
