Murrayfield sold-out for Calcutta Cup clash

Next month’s Calcutta Cup clash at Murrayfield is sold-out and the last remaining tickets for Scotland’s other home match in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship are likely to be snapped up by the end of the week.


 
A capacity crowd of 67,144 will be at the Scotland v England match on 8 February and similar “full house” signs will be posted at the Scotland v France match on 8 March.

Supporters who have not yet bought can keep an eye on our website scottishrugby.org for any returns from prior rights holders, which can happen on occasions.

Fierce demand

Scottish Rugby’s Director of Commercial Operations, Communications and Public Affairs, Dominic McKay, today thanked supporters for their continued backing of the national team.
 
“We know there’s always fierce demand for our matches against England but to be down to the last few hundred tickets for our match with France some 46 days before that fixture just underlines the special place Murrayfield holds in the hearts of so many Scots.

“Scott Johnson, our head coach, has stressed the need for Scotland to be competitive in every match we play and that clearly strikes a chord with our supporters.

“They also know that you can’t surpass the atmosphere of Murrayfield on an international match-day with our exciting and extensive programme of pre-match entertainment.

“Last season some 500,000 supporters attended representative rugby fixtures in Scotland and we are heartened by the take-up of tickets for our home internationals in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship.”
