Request a Player Appearance

Edinburgh Rugby has pledged its renewed support to the city and wider region’s clubs, schools, and rugby institutions by launching a new initiative, ‘Our Burgh’ that will see the capital club, its staff and players getting out and about in support of the team’s local community.

Requesting the support of our community coaching team or the attendance of a professional / international rugby player is easy, and is a great way to amplify the reach and appeal of your rugby event to prospective players in your area.

To request a player appearance, please contact Andrew Whitelaw:

Naturally, not all requests can be fulfilled, and we’d ask for least two weeks’ notice to organise an appearance. We’ll contact those who have been successful in their requests.
