Scotland v Spain - Matchday Information
Scottish Rugby looks forward to welcoming fans back to Hive Stadium in Edinburgh for Scotland v Spain, Scotland Women’s opening game of the season and the warm-up to the inaugural WXV tournament next month. The game kicks off at 5.45pm and will finish in time for fans to catch the men’s Rugby World Cup game against Romania (kick-off 8pm) which is being shown in the Tennent’s Up & Under Bar next door in Scottish Gas Murrayfield.
As ever, we strongly encourage you to plan your journey to the stadium in advance. To help you plan your day, here is some useful information.
Match Tickets: Digital-only tickets on the new FREE Scottish Rugby Ticketing App
To improve access, security and sustainability on Scotland matchdays, all Scotland match tickets are being issued to the Scottish Rugby Ticketing App to be scanned upon arrival at Hive Stadium for entry into the stadium. Your Scottish Rugby ticketing account – the one you used to purchase your tickets – will link your ticket(s) to the new App using the mobile number registered to your ticketing account. As there should only be one ticket per device, all ticket holders (except children or dependents) must download the app so the purchaser can transfer their tickets to their devices in order to enter the stadium. If you’ve bought a few tickets for family or friends, you’ll be able to transfer these tickets to each person in your group once they have downloaded the app to their smartphone.
You can find out more about the new Scottish Rugby Ticketing App HERE and the answers to a wide range of Frequently Asked Questions about the Ticketing App can be found on the ASK Scottish Rugby section of this website HERE.
