Celtic Challenge opener reaches capacity
Today’s inaugural Celtic Challenge match between Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors has reached the capacity of the Hive Stadium Main Stand, meaning an impressive crowd of 1,934 will attend the historic opener.
No more tickets are available as there is no capacity to safely open, steward and cater for more stands this close to kick-off.
Tickets are still available for the women’s team’s following matches at Hive Stadium against Irish sides Wolfhounds (Saturday 6 January, kick-off 2pm) and Clovers (Saturday 3 February, kick-off 12.30pm).
The women’s match dovetails with today’s decisive 1872 Cup derby between the Edinburgh and Glasgow men’s teams at Scottish Gas Murrayfield, which gets underway at 3pm (gates open at 1pm).
