Thought that belter of a heading would attract interest
HAMPDEN faces a significant hike in its rates and the MSM are reporting today that the SFA may have to walk away from the National Stadium rather than pay the additional £175,000 which is reported to be “unaffordable.”
Independent revaluations were carried out in early 2015 and will come into effect from April 1 this year across all grounds in Scottish football.
So Hampden is not the only football stadium which will see changes to its rates.
Celtic, Hearts, Hibs, Dundee United and St Mirren have all seen the rateable value of their grounds fall while Rangers, Ross County, Inverness Caley Thistle, Dundee and Hamilton face significant rises.
Surely Hampden won't close because of this?
A burden for a number of cash strapped clubs and prices may have to rise to accommodate this tax
