Glasgow is the preferred place for world’s oldest international football fixture

Car Hire Glasgow Airport would love to have the game against England take place again on a regular basis and stage it in the city. They are keeping fingers crossed the stadium would be ready in time to host it.

There is believed to be serious negotiations between the Scottish and English Football Association’s to stage a match on 18th November in Glasgow at Hampden Park. No agreement has been reached yet, but the feeling is it will take place.

The issue is where it will take place, with Hampden the preferred venue but doubts are serious as to whether or not the National Stadium will have been refitted to football after being part of the Commonwealth Games in July. Celtic Park is a likely alternative, with a 60,000 capacity it would surely be sold out with the visit of England.

After the game in celebration of the English Football Association turning 150 years old between the two nations, the conduct of fans had been praised by police. It was only the forth time in 25 years the two teams had played against each other, as crowd trouble marred games and the increase in international games brought the regular fixture to an end.

Both managers seem keen for the game to be scheduled, which would come four days after Scotland play Republic of Ireland on Friday 14th November in their Group D game. The Scots are unbeaten in their last five games and a real sense of optimism is felt that they could qualify for their first finals since 1998.
