BT Murrayfield Stadium Tours

BT Murrayfield Tours

Since the inaugural match in 1871, Scottish Rugby has had a rich history with BT Murrayfield witnessing some of the world's greatest rugby moments and playing host to some of the world's most famous musicians over the past century. BT Murrayfield is one of the great sporting stadia of the world and the largest sports venue in Scotland. The stadium was opened in 1925 to Scotland's first Grand Slam win, it saw the first international undersoil heating system installed in 1959 and over 104,000 spectators crammed into the stands in 1975 when Scotland played Wales!
