Record Attendance Expected at Heineken Champions Cup Quarter-Final

Posted on Tuesday, 26th March 2019 at 10:30

Over 30,000 tickets have now been sold for the match, which will see Edinburgh Rugby take on two-times champions Munster at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 30 March (kick-off 12.45pm).

With record crowds expected, we’ll be running additional services from every three minutes to keep up with demand.

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 avoid congestion around the ground, and expensive parking, which will also be in short supply.

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).
