Get on-board to see Scotland vs. Georgia

Posted on Thursday, 29th August 2019 at 14:14

For the first time the national side will play on a Friday evening facing 12th ranked in the world Georgia.  Two days later the Scotland Squad will start their road to Japan for the forthcoming Rugby World Cup.  Large crowds are expected and BT Murrayfield is promising a party atmosphere to see the team off in style.

The West Fan Village opens at 4.30pm, with general turnstiles open at 5.30pm. Kick-off is 7.30pm.

With frequent and direct services to the stadium from locations such as Edinburgh Airport, the city centre and Ingliston Park & Ride, the tram offers supporters the best way to get to the stadium.

For fans travelling from further afield, Edinburgh Trams also offers interchanges with trains at the Edinburgh Gateway stop in addition to Edinburgh Park Station, Haymarket and St Andrew Square (for Waverley).
