Capacity Extended For 1872 Cup

Glasgow Warriors, in partnership with Glasgow Life, have agreed to extend the capacity of Scotstoun Stadium for the 1872 Cup clash against Edinburgh on Friday 21st December.

The additional capacity will be provided by a new, temporary, stand at the West end of the stadium. It will provide approximately 850 additional seats under roof cover and will bring the capacity of Scotstoun up to 7,000 for the oldest club match in the world. Tickets are priced at _20 Adults, _15 Concessions and _5 for Under 18s as long you book before midnight prior to the game. _

The 1872 Cup matches between Glasgow and Edinburgh are always fiery, passionate affairs that reflect the longstanding rivalry between Scotland's two largest cities._ These are the two most attended professional rugby fixtures in Scotland each year._ More than 22,000 attended the two matches last year with the second leg, at Firhill Stadium, a sell-out.

Another sellout crowd is anticipated for Warriors v. Edinburgh on 21st December with fewer than two and a half thousand tickets still available after the extended capacity.

Thanks to the new stand, there are plenty of excellent seats still available, as well as the great atmosphere of the covered standing terrace at the East end of the pitch.
