Scotland Women will play at Hampden Park for the first time in seven years as they take on fellow FIFA Women’s World Cup debutants Jamaica on Tuesday 28 May.

Shelley Kerr’s side will look to break their record crowd for a women’s game of 4,098, achieved last year against Switzerland.

The fixture will mark the first meeting between Scotland and Jamaica in senior international football.

Before that match, Kerr’s side will fly to Spain to take on two further France-bound nations in the form of Chile and Brazil. Scotland will take on Chile on Friday 5 April and Brazil will then provide the opposition three days later.

Upon the announcement of the match at Hampden Park against Jamaica, Shelley Kerr told scottishfa.co.uk: “Playing the final match of World Cup preparation at Hampden Park will be an incredibly exciting moment for everyone associated with the national team.

“It gives some of the players a chance to play at the national stadium for the first time and will further aid preparation for the biggest test of their careers in France, where they will play in other impressive stadiums.

“Since qualification the level of interest from the public and media has greatly increased, and it will only continue to grow as we edge closer to the tournament.

“We are now looking to set another record crowd. To have 4,098 for our 2-1 victory over Switzerland during qualification was great but now we’re hopeful that the country continues to get behind us and give the players the send-off they deserve at Hampden Park.”

Ticket details will be announced by the Scottish FA in due course.
