Autumn Nations Cup 2020

This Autumn, Scotland will compete in the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup.

Scotland will take part in a newly created tournament during November and December with France and Fiji coming to BT Murrayfield, as well as Georgia who Gregor Townsend’s side will host in a warm-up match in October.

Over four weekends, the Autumn Nations Cup will bring together Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, France, Italy, Fiji and Georgia for a new International rugby tournament, with three games being played at BT Murrayfield.

The tournament comprises of two pools of four:

Group A: England, Ireland, Wales, Georgia

Group B: France, Scotland, Italy, Fiji.

All four nations in each pool play each other once, with the final weekend’s games between the similarly ranked teams from each pool (e.g. 1st in Pool A v. 1st in Pool B etc..) Before the tournament kicks off in November, Scotland will play one warm-up match at BT Murrayfield and their final match of the 2020 Guinness Six Nations campaign, against Wales (the game from the Championship’s final weekend that was cancelled just before the country went into lockdown).

Supporters at BT Murrayfield for the Autumn Nations Cup

The Scottish Government will ultimately decide whether we can have spectators at BT Murrayfield for the Autumn Nations Cup and if so, how many seats will be available.

We are awaiting confirmation from the Scottish Government whether social distancing regulations will permit the entry of spectators into BT Murrayfield for the Autumn Nations Cup games and pre-tournament warm-up match.

Scottish Rugby has been in regular dialogue with the Scottish Government since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, giving us tremendous support as we developed several stadium configuration models based on different social distance requirements as part of our contingency planning. They gave us the green light for Edinburgh’s derby match against Glasgow Warriors last month – the first professional rugby in the UK to welcome spectators since March – and we continue to hope our experience and learnings from this ‘pilot’ event helps us to be in a position to invite supporters back to BT Murrayfield this autumn.
