First match 26 October 1873, Queen's Park FC 7 Dumbreck FC 0, a Scottish FA cup match.  This game was also the first time that the famous black and white hooped jerseys were worn by the club.
Queen's Park FC made moves to rent part of the Queen's Park Recreation Ground in Glasgow, but this was rejected by the City Council early in 1873. The club were not put off by this refusal, and a second bid was more successful, with the council agreeing on 21 October 1873 to lease the ground to the club for a period of six months at a cost of 20. The next thing to be decided was what to call their new home. Just to the south of their 200x100 yard pitch was Prospect Hill, upon which local builder George Eadie had recently built a row of flats. He had called this terrace Hampden Terrace, after John Hampden, a parliamentarian and General in Cromwell's army in the English Civil War. As this terrace dominated the local landscape, the name was taken for the new ground. The worry about the club's unsecured tenure was to prove well founded, as the expansion of Glasgow resulted in the building of the Cathcart Circle railway line.  Unfortunately the planned route for the railway went right across their pitch, and the club were told to move by May 1883. - QPFC.com
