Capacity added for 1872 Cup decider
More seating sections have been added for next Saturday’s unmissable 1872 Cup decider against Glasgow Warriors at Scottish Gas Murrayfield, as demand for tickets continues to outstrip all games on record.
Fans from both ends of the M8 have been snapping up tickets as anticipation intensifies for the inter-city derby that sees Scotland’s biggest stars go head-to-head for the coveted 1872 Cup and crucial BKT United Rugby Championship points.
Breaking a landmark 30,000-crowd for the first time is now a realistic target, with new sections in gold, silver and bronze categories added to the west stand, in close proximity to the pre-match Street Party, to cope with the unprecedented demand.
The opening leg kicks off at Scotstoun this Friday night (7.35pm) before the silverware is settled in the capital the following Saturday (30 December, kick-off 3pm) at the national stadium.
With the match returning to its traditional festive spot, an earlier kick-off of 3pm and four live music acts providing the soundtrack to the pre-match build-up, it’s the perfect chance to get the whole family together to kickstart Hogmanay celebrations.
Supporters encouraged to act now to secure the best view and best value seats in the stadium as seats continue to sell fast.
The men’s clash is also part of an historic double-header at Scottish Gas Murrayfield that sees an inaugural women’s inter-city derby take place in Hive Stadium earlier in the day, as Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors women’s teams face off in Hive Stadium at 12 noon.
Fans can upgrade their 1872 Cup matchday by supporting the club across both teams.
Tickets for Edinburgh Rugby women’s matches are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for U16s (inclusive of order processing fee).
Please note the men’s and women’s derby matches are ticketed separately. A ticket for one will not grant access to the other.
