Scotland's North and South America Tour

Scotland will play four games this summer, taking on Canada, USA, Chile and Uruguay.

Beginning in North America, Scotland will take on the Canadians for the first time since 2018 in Edmonton where Scotland ran out 48-10 winners.

The match will take place on Saturday 6 July at TD Place in Ottawa.

Gregor Townsend’s men will then journey to Washington DC where they will play USA at Audi Field for the first time in six years. In their last meeting they were edged out by a point, losing 30-29 in Houston.

USA were last in action in November where they beat Spain and Brazil.

South America will be the next stop on Scotland’s travels as they return to Chile, where Scotland A won 45-5 in Santiago two years ago. Following that match, Chile defeated USA to qualify for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

The tour will conclude in Uruguay for an occasion which will mark the first time the two sides have played each other since the 1999 Rugby World Cup, in a match Scotland won 43-12, with Gregor Townsend scoring a try.

Uruguay made an impressive appearance at the 2023 Rugby World Cup where they competed well with France in the group stages and defeated Namibia.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said: “Having the ability to play four games on this year’s summer tour is a brilliant opportunity for us. It will enable us to spend added time working with a wider group of players, building more cohesion with our squad and also giving more players experiences of preparing for and playing Test match rugby.

“With the travel demands and contrasting styles of rugby from the four nations we face, we will be challenged on and off the field to deliver quality performances. Touring is a great way for a group to build closer bonds and I’m sure we’ll see new players come through and thrive in our environment.”
