In the recent past Scottish Rugby has been able to offer a limited number of Scotland v England tickets for public sale. But for the 2008 game no public sale is planned.

All 15, 000 tickets for the Scotland v England game at Murrayfield on Saturday 8 March that are available after allocation to Scotland's rugby clubs, debenture holders and other priority stakeholder groups, will be used to reward those who have supported the Scotland team at a vital time ahead of the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

Ticket prices for the Bank of Scotland Corporate August Tests against Ireland on Saturday 11 August (kick-off 2.30pm) and South Africa on Saturday 25 August (kick-off 5pm) were announced last week with debenture holders, rugby club members and members of the Scotland Rugby Supporters Club given a first and exclusive window in which to buy their tickets.

The public sale of tickets, priced at £10, £20 and £30 for adults and £5, £10 and £15 for under-18s, students and OAPs starts at 9am tomorrow (Monday 7 May).

Buy through the Scottish Rugby website www.scottishrugby.org; via our credit card hotline number 0131 346 5100 and in person from the Scottish Rugby Ticket Centre, Roseburn Street, Edinburgh. Please note the hotline and ticket centre are staffed from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. A booking fee applies for all credit/debit card transactions.

Scotland's Summer of Rugby kicks-off with the Emirates Airline Edinburgh 7s, the climax of the IRB World Series, at Murrayfield on 2 and 3 June.
