Hampson excelled at sport at school, including athletics, swimming and soccer. He did not begin playing Australian football until 2004. He then joined Mount Gravatt Football Club in 2005, and by the end of the year he was the club's number one ruckman. Hampson was drafted in the priority round of the 2006 AFL Draft by the Carlton Football Club (17th pick overall). He made his debut with Carlton in Round 21, 2007 against North Melbourne.
Hampson struggled with short-sightedness early in his career, and had laser eye surgery prior to the 2012 season to correct it.
Hampson played 63 senior games for Carlton from 2007 until the end of the 2013 season. He was traded to Richmond in October 2013, in exchange for pick 28 in the AFL Draft. Hampson made his senior debut for Richmond in round one of the 2014 season, again the Gold Coast Suns.
