Mascot prize draw for Autumn Tests

Young supporters, once again, have the chance to attend Scotland’s Autumn Test matches v Japan (Saturday 9 November), South Africa (Sunday 17 November) and Australia (Saturday 23 November) for less than £5.

Kelly Brown and Matt Scott visit Kinross HIgh School to promote the offerGroups of eight under-18s accompanied by two adults can take advantage of Scottish Rugby’s group offer from as little as £40.

Also, if the application is returned by 5pm on Friday 27 September, the group will be entered into a prize draw, which could see one of their youngsters being nominated to be a mascot at one of the three games.

Tickets for the group offer, are available in the Clubs and Schools section, on the phone, 0131 346 5160 or in person from the Scottish Rugby Ticket Centre at Murrayfield.

Scottish Rugby’s Director of Commercial Operations, Communications and Public Affairs, Dominic McKay, said: “This year, we’ve tried to further incentivise this great group offer by adding the addition of the prize draw. It’s every young fan’s dream to run onto the Murrayfield pitch with the Scotland team, so hopefully we can make that a reality for six youngsters.

“We encourage parents, teachers and coaches to book their tickets soon, to ensure they can savour the special atmosphere of Murrayfield on an international match day.”

Scotland and British and Irish Lions player, Stuart Hogg, said: “I remember my first trip to Murrayfield as if it was yesterday. I was about seven and it was the Scotland game against Wales in 1999 when John Leslie scored the quickest try in international rugby.

“I remember coming to the game, getting my face painted with the Scotland flag and singing the national anthem, but then everybody stood up and I couldn’t see the try as I was just a wee boy.

“As a kid I dreamed of being out on the Murrayfield pitch one day and now that dream has come true. I hope to be able to inspire the next generation of Scotland fans just as I was encouraged back then.”

In addition to the group offer individual tickets are available from £15 for adults and £5 for under-18s. There is also a two or three game Autumn Test pass available at £35 for an adult and £20 for under-18s.
