Scotland v Wales Matchday Information
Scottish Rugby looks forward to welcoming fans back to DAM Health Stadium, Edinburgh for the 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations first home fixture against Wales. The game kicks off at 5.30pm and we strongly encourage you to plan your journey 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 DAM Health 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.

HELP US KEEP DAM HEALTH SUSTAINABLE
With the help of our official waste and recycling partner Biffa, we managed to recycle 49% of our matchday waste at BT Murrayfield and the DAM Health Stadium during the Autumn Nations Series last November. The remaining general waste was converted from waste to energy – we are proud that none of our waste goes to land fill.
With Biffa’s help we have introduced new segregated bins to the stadium to improve our direct recycling stats and would like to encourage everyone attending this weekend to use these recycling and general waste bins to dispose of your litter responsibly and help us continue to keep matchdays more sustainable.
