Hamilton Crescent is a cricket ground located in the Partick area of Glasgow, Scotland. It is the home of the West of Scotland Cricket Club.

Hamilton Crescent hosted the first ever international football match, played between Scotland and England. The game was played on 30 November 1872, ended in a goalless draw, and was watched by a crowd of 4,000.[1]

Further international matches were held here in 1874 and 1876, before being moved to the first Hampden Park. The 1877 Scottish Cup Final was also held at Hamilton Crescent.
