The GUINNESS PRO12 Final is coming to Edinburgh for the very first time!
Leinster booked their place in the GUINNESS PRO12 Final on Friday night with a 30-18 win over Ulster and then Connacht beat Glasgow Warriors 16-11 in a thriller in Galway.
This is the first time the PRO12 Final has been held outside of Ireland and it’s already broken all records, becoming not just the biggest-ever PRO12 crowd in Scotland but also the biggest ever PRO12 Final!
Be sure to get to the stadium early on the day of the final. Edinburgh is going to be very busy that weekend with not only the record-breaking GUINNESS PRO12 Final crowd in town but also the many thousands of runners taking part in the city’s marathon the following day so the best advice is to make a day of it and arrive early doors. There’s lots to do at BT Murrayfield before the match - our popular fan village is situated behind the West Stand and opens at 2.30pm. As well as food and drink and rugby skills games you’ll be able to watch the Aviva Premiership Final (Saracens or Leicester v. Exeter or Wasps) on a big screen, kicking off at 3pm. The ever-popular GUINNESS® Inflatable Pint is located in this area, with the GUINNESS® Travelling Band setting the tone for the big game ahead with some pre-match entertainment. The West Fan Village can be accessed via Gate B off Roseburn Street and via Gate D off Riversdale Crescent and behind the Ice Rink.
Alternatively sites such as Airbnb and Flipkey may be able to provide accommodation within Edinburgh. These sites are private home owner rentals and are not Hotels.
There are plenty of other convenient accommodation options available out with Edinburgh. A short trip along the M8, Glasgow city centre accommodation is still available and at competitive prices. From Glasgow Queen Street Station or Central Station you can get on a train to Haymarket, Edinburgh in approximately 1 hour. This is an easy journey to make and can sometimes even be quicker than trying to get across town within Edinburgh on a busy day! Once at Haymarket Station it is a 15 minute walk to BT Murrayfield or a tram from the station takes you to the stadium gates (more travel information can be found within our FAQ link below). Expedia and Booking.com are both currently showing availability within Glasgow city centre, which is nearby to both train stations. This would be convenient for those wanting to make the journey through for the GUINNESS PRO 12 Final at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 28th May.
Search Glasgow City Centre for near train stations.
