Edinburgh game moved to Meggetland

The Ospreys game against Edinburgh on Friday 28 February (kick-off 7.35pm) will be played at Meggetland, it was confirmed today.


Concerns over the current Murrayfield Stadium playing surface – caused by a parasitic infection that damaged the roots – mean the club will relocate the RaboDirect PRO12 clash to ensure the international pitch is in robust health for Scotland’s home fixtures in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations, against England and France.


Edinburgh Rugby managing director, David Davies, said: 


“Everyone at the club is really excited about this temporary move to Meggetland.

“We’ve taken a lot of time and care to select the best venue for this fixture and that limits the inconvenience to our fans. We’re working hard to make the most of this opportunity to pack out the stands with black and red.

“Pre-sales and season ticket memberships mean that the ground – which can hold about 3,000 – is already at 85% of capacity, so we urge all fans to buy their tickets early and guarantee their place at this great opportunity to cheer on the club at close quarters.”


To help fans get to the ground Edinburgh Rugby are running a park and ride scheme from the Saughtonhall car park at Murrayfield Stadium.


Those wishing to use this service must note their interest in advance by emailing info@edinburghrugby.org, noting their preferred shuttle time of 5.50pm, 6.10pm, 6.30pm or 6.50pm.


Tickets for Edinburgh Rugby’s clash with Ospreys are on sale now from Edinburgh Rugby priced from £5 for under-18s, £10 for students and senior citizens and £20 for adults.
