On Saturday 8 February Scotland’s national rugby team will face the ‘auld enemy’ England in the Calcutta Cup as part of Scotland’s Six Nations campaign.

Kick off is at 4.45pm and is already a sell out match with crowds expected to top 67,000.  The West Fan village will be open from 1.45pm with general turnstiles open from 2.45pm.  Six Nations fans can come early to soak up the atmosphere in the fan village and watch the Ireland vs. Wales match on the screens within the stadium area.

The tram offers supporters the best way to get to the stadium and here’s how do to it:

  • Keep your timing on track by downloading the TfE app.
  • Tickets must be purchased before boarding.  We recommend buying a return ticket at £3.40 for adults and £1.80 for children to make your journey simpler.
  • Keep your ticket safe, you’ll need to show it at Murrayfield Tram Stop.
  • We’ll be running from every 3 mins with extra trams, but queuing is likely so bear with us and we’ll get you moving as soon as we can.
  • We’ll have plenty of people out to help you if you have any questions.


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).
