2023/24 BKT URC Schedule Confirmed
The 2023/24 BKT URC fixtures for Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors have been announced. Glasgow Warriors will open the season at home to Leinster, while Edinburgh’s home opener comes in Round 2 against South African side Emirates Lions.
Franco Smith’s men will welcome the Leinstermen on Sunday 22 October (kick-off 4pm), with Round One fixtures scheduled to avoid broadcasting conflicts with the Rugby World Cup semi-finals taking place the same weekend.
The festive double-header with Edinburgh sees Glasgow kick-off their 1872 Cup defence at home on Friday 22 December (kick-off 7.35pm), before travelling to BT Murrayfield on Saturday 30 December (kick-off 3pm) to round out 2023.
Glasgow conclude their regular season with the visit of Zebre Parma to Scotstoun in Round 18. All nine regular-season BKT URC home matches, as well as Glasgow Warrior’s two home Champions Cup pool fixtures and The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Friendly match against Zebre Parma at Scotstoun, are included in a 2023/24 Season Ticket.
