The last time New Zealand toured Scotland in 2005 the top price ticket for their meeting with Scotland was £60, while at the Rugby World Cup last September the top price was almost three times that; this November that top price is cut to £50.Scottish Rugby is lowering ticket prices for the visit of the All Blacks to Murrayfield in the Autumn.

The last time New Zealand toured Scotland in 2005 the top price ticket for their meeting with Scotland was £60, while at the Rugby World Cup last September the top price was almost three times that; this November that top price is cut to £50.

The All Blacks provide a spectacular opening to the 2008 Bank of Scotland Corporate Autumn Tests on Saturday November 8 with a 5.15pm kick-off.

The series will also play a crucial part in determining Scotland's opponents in the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand as world rankings at the end of November will shape the draw.

Scottish Rugby Chief Executive Gordon McKie said: "The visit of the All Blacks is always one of the highlights of any season and I'm delighted that Scottish Rugby has been able to price the match at a level that should help to attract supporters from all backgrounds.

"In addition to New Zealand, we'll also have matches against the current world champions, South Africa; and the physical Canadians, where we'll be looking for revenge having lost narrowly the last time we played them in Vancouver in 2002."

Adult tickets for the New Zealand game go on sale at 9am tomorrow (Tuesday 18 March) at £20, £30 and £50, with corresponding reductions for under-18s at £10, £15 and £25.

Next to face Scotland at Murrayfield, on Saturday 15 November with a 2.30pm kick-off, will be the Webb Ellis trophy holders, South Africa. The same core prices have been set for that clash with the Springboks with the added attraction that all students in full-time education can access the reductions.

The Bank of Scotland Corporate Autumn Tests conclude on Saturday 22 November when Scotland play Canada. The venue and ticket prices for that international are still to be confirmed. Scottish Rugby plans to make an announcement on that fixture later in the spring.
