Attendance record in sight for Quarter-Final
Edinburgh are within touching distance of recording the highest ever attendance for a Heineken Champions Cup Quarter-Final in the UK next weekend.
Over 30,000 tickets have now been sold for the match, which will see Richard Cockerill’s men take on two-times champions Munster at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 30 March (kick-off 12.45pm).
The capital club set the bar when 37,882 people turned out for the Quarter-Final against Toulouse in 2012. English side Saracens surpassed that the following year when 37,888 turned out for their showdown with Ulster at Twickenham.
With the match now just 11 days away, Head Coach Richard Cockerill hopes the Edinburgh and Scottish rugby public will turn out in force to support their team at BT Murrayfield.
“A lot of the players that stepped up for Scotland in the Six Nations are Edinburgh men, so we’ve got a good team and a forward pack that’s able to dominate the opposition,” said Cockerill.
“Hopefully we’ll get a record crowd for the Quarter-Final next Saturday. We’ve got a team worth watching and we’ve shown we’re a good side. Come and support us. The boys deserve it.”
Edinburgh Rugby will host a vibrant Fan Zone on the day of the big game, where one of the city’s favourite bands, BLEEKER, will be on stage pre-match and where fans can gather to watch the Saracens v Glasgow Warriors Quarter-Final on the big screens post-match.
