Scotland's Autumn Tests return to BT Sport and BBC

Scotland’s home Autumn Test matches at BT Murrayfield will return to both BT Sport and the BBC this November.

Scotland will travel to face Wales at the Principality Stadium before returning to Edinburgh to host Fiji, South Africa and Argentina, with each of the home Tests shown in live simulcast on the two channels.

Dominic McKay, Scottish Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “We’re gearing up for another record-breaking Autumn Test series with bumper crowds in the capital and simulcast coverage from two of the country’s leading sports broadcasters.”

Scotland will open the autumn campaign against their Six Nations rivals and contest the ‘Doddie Weir Cup’, as both teams support the former Scotland and British & Irish Lions player who has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

The Wales game will provide Test-level build-up for the three matches at BT Murrayfield, which will kick-off on Saturday 10 November against Fiji, followed on consecutive Saturdays by fixtures against South Africa (17 November) and Argentina (24 November).

The 2017 Autumn Tests at BT Murrayfield broke all recent records with a first ever three-match sell-out contributing to the past eight home Tests reaching capacity at Scotland’s biggest stadium, with this year’s series on track to once more deliver record crowds.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said: “BT Sport viewers will be in for a treat thanks to our coverage of Scotland’s Autumn internationals.

"This will complement our coverage of every game from the Heineken Champions Cup, alongside Gallagher Premiership Rugby.”

BBC Head of TV Sport, Philip Bernie, said: “It’s great news that our partnership with Scottish Rugby continues to bring their Autumn Test matches to the widest possible audience across the UK.”
