Scotland to host first ever European Rugby Semi-Final at BT Murrayfield

Posted: 10th April 2015


After Edinburgh Rugby’s exciting European Cup quarter final win over London Irish on Sunday, the club has secured the semi final at BT Murrayfield on Friday 17 April (kick-off 7.45pm) against Newport Gwent Dragons. This is the first time a European semi final has been played in Scotland and Edinburgh are the only Scottish team still in European competition.

We’ve had a great response so far, with 2500 tickets sold in the first 36 hours on being on sale for this match – making this the fastest-selling Edinburgh game since the record-breaking European quarter-final against Toulouse in 2012! – and it would be fantastic to get a massive crowd to cheer on the team to the Cup Final and do it for Scotland!

The stadium will have reserved seating in the east stand and a west pitchside standing area of around 700 capacity (subject to availability). You can purchase tickets online and print them at home, call our ticket centre on 0131 346 5160 or come along to the Ticket Centre on Roseburn Street in person. Tickets are £20 (adults), £10 (concessions) and £5 (under-18s).
