What’s on Guide: 1872 Cup

A record-breaking crowd of over 30,000 will roar on the decisive 1872 Cup match between Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors this Saturday at Scottish Gas Murrayfield (30 December, kick-off 3pm).

Supporters should expect and plan for a busy transport network to Edinburgh this Saturday.

Please plan your journey well in advance, and leave in good time to make it to, and into, the ground – avoiding delays and queues. Murrayfield is a residential area, so we ask that due care and consideration is taken if parking locally.





There’s plenty on the go in and around the national as Scotland’s biggest stars prepare to go head-to-head for the coveted 1872 Cup and crucial BKT United Rugby Championship points.
