PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Douglas Ross has said the World Cup final could be played at Hampden Park as part of a future joint UK bid for the tournament. The Scottish Conservative leader was speaking after the SFA confirmed today it was planning to let around 12,000 fans enter the National Stadium when the Scotland men's team take part in this summer's delayed European Championships. Hampden has hosted several major European finals in the past - including two memorable Real Madrid victories - but this year will be the first time it welcomes international teams for such a prestigious tournament. Speculation has mounted that England may bid to host the World Cup in 2030 and a joint bid involving Wales and Scotland has also been rumoured. Ross first threw his weight behind the idea while still serving as a UK Government minister in January 2020, claiming a joint UK bid could benefit all of the home nations.

He said: "It is an opportunity. Hampden has hosted the Champions League final - I went to that with my dad. "Massimo Busacca was the referee. That’s what I remember about it. He’s now the head of one of the heads of FIFA refereeing.

. "I think it would be a great venue to host the World Cup final as well." Ross later clarified he was speaking about the 2007 UEFA Cup final at Hampden, which was refereed by Busacca. The 2002 Champions League final in Glasgow - well-known for the incredible volley scored by France legend Zinedine Zidane - was overseen by Urs Meier. Ross - who is standing for election to Holyrood in May on the Highland list vote - is a top-level assistant referee and is a regular sight running the line at Scottish Premiership fixtures. But his part-time job as a linesman has been an open goal to his political opponents - particularly whenever he has missed parliamentary business as a result of his football commitments. The Moray MP was criticised in August after he snubbed a VJ Day service to work as a linesman. Instead of attending the constituency event in Forres, he ran the line 200 miles away at Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park clash against St Johnstone. He later apologised for an “error of judgment” and donated his fee to charity. After securing his leadership post in the summer, Ross said it was “useful” to have an “outside interest” that people can engage with. But he added: “My first and foremost priority will be representing the people of Moray and the people across Scotland.”
