Rugby fans heading to BT Murrayfield Stadium for Silver Saturday are being urged to take the tram to tackle the traffic.

On Saturday, April 28, the 1872 Cup decider between Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby joins the pinnacle of club rugby season – the BT Cup Finals. Dubbed ‘Silver Saturday’ as a total of seven trophies will be contested for on the day, aiming to showcase the best rugby in Scotland for existing and new fans alike and bring the community of rugby together for a special day of finals.

• Turnstiles open at 9.30am
• BT Men’s Bowl Final | kick-off 10am
• BT Women’s Bowl Final | kick-off 11am

• Sarah Beaney Cup Final | kick-off 2.10pm

With frequent and direct services to the stadium from locations such as the City Centre and Ingliston Park & Ride, the tram offers supporters the best way to avoid congestion around the ground, and expensive parking, which will also be in short supply.
