1872 – 2018/19 season update

Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby will contest next season’s 1872 Cup over three rounds, with Scotstoun hosting the final match of the series.

The festive double-header, over the 2018/19 Christmas and New Year period, will be played at BT Murrayfield and Scotstoun respectively.

Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby have confirmed, in conjunction with Scottish Rugby, that the third leg of the 1872 Cup will be played at Scotstoun with an increased capacity. The decision has been taken following engagement with supporters and review of operational and logistical elements.

The third leg match will be included in all Glasgow Warriors Season Ticket Memberships for the coming season. Season Ticket Holders will have tickets to 11 Guinness PRO14 matches and three Heineken Champions Cup matches in 2018/19.

The match will continue to form part of the Edinburgh Season Ticket Membership package. Supporters who have already purchased their Membership for next year have been communicated with directly.

Any Season Ticket Members who are unable to travel to the match in Glasgow or simply do not wish to attend, will be offered an additional ticket to any home Edinburgh match of their choice in 2018/19. Details of how to redeem tickets for the final 1872 Cup match in Glasgow (or an alternative Edinburgh home game) will be communicated in due course.

Any remaining tickets will be made available to purchase by Glasgow Warriors Warrior Nation Members.

The 2019 ‘Silver Saturday’ event will retain the traditional Cup Finals Day format for the coming season. Fans attending the event will be able to watch the Glasgow Warriors vs Edinburgh Rugby Guinness PRO14 match on big screens at BT Murrayfield as part of the extensive matchday experience.
