Rugby fans urged to pre-purchase tram tickets for Six Nations

With Rugby’s Six Nations championship set to get underway in February, fans heading to the home of Scottish Rugby at BT Murrayfield Stadium are being urged to book their tram tickets in advance to save having to queue on the day. Scotland will play England for the Calcutta Cup at Murrayfield on Saturday 5th February with trams set to run up to every three minutes before and after the match will be played with a capacity crowd following recent changes in Scottish Government restrictions on outdoor events.

An Adult Rugby Return costs £3.40 with a Child Rugby Return costing £1.80 – travel is possible from any Edinburgh Trams stop with the exception of the Airport. They can be purchased in advance from and can then either be loaded onto a smart device or printed out before travelling.

In addition to the Adult and Child return tickets a Family Day Tripper ticket (up to 2 adults and 3 under 16s) can be purchased at the same website for only £7.50.

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, said: “We introduced the rugby pre-purchase tickets for the Autumn Internationals last year, and they proved really popular with fans heading to Murrayfield by tram. The 2022 Six Nations Championship is a great chance for everyone to get back together and enjoy the thrill of match day atmosphere in our stunning city.”
