Media Accreditation

Media accreditation for Scotland’s Autumn Nation Series fixtures to be played at BT Murrayfield has now opened. Information on how to apply is detailed below.

All written and relevant broadcast media and photographers applying for access to matches or Team Run events should be prepared to adhere to all relevant public health guidelines and medical advice in place from the Scottish Government and Scottish Rugby.

Please note that there may be additional measures in place to ensure the safety of all attendees in relation to COVID-19 which may vary according to the Scottish Government advice at the time of the fixture.

Everyone attending BT Murrayfield in a working capacity during the Autumn Nations Series will fall under Scottish Rugby accredited personnel status and will need to adhere to all terms & conditions. Under Scottish Government rules, people ‘working or performing in venues’ are exempt from the Covid-19 Vaccine Passport rules, however Scottish Rugby’s terms & conditions state that those working will need to submit evidence of a negative lateral flow test*.

*Lateral Flow Tests

If your accreditation application is successful, you will be required to carry out a lateral flow test. Evidence of a negative lateral flow test result will be required when completing the Health Screening Link as per Step 4 in the process above in order to protect everyone attending the event.

* If you test positive, you should self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test. This will also be captured as part of the Health Screening Link process listed above and will be flagged to our accreditation system, removing your access to attend the event.

* Even if you have no symptoms - you should do a lateral flow twice a week (every 3 to 4 days – one of these tests should ideally be carried out within 24 hours of match day) to check if you have Covid-19.

* You can order your free test kits HERE.
