There's to be 16,500 fans allowed into Murrayfield for the British and Irish Lions game - the game is completely sold out, so around 50k fans are going to be left disappointed with just refunds rather than the opportunity to see the Lions in person in Scotland.
We're out of the tier system by then - why are there still such massive limits then? We're seeing full stadia in other parts of the world - no reason whatsoever this couldn't have been a much bigger crowd.
No U14s allowed into the game either
Going to the plan, which is looking less likely by the day, we'd be in L0 then I think? So it's 2000 by default unless you make a case for more. Seems like the SRU, unlike the SFA, have actually got their finger out.
Didn't get near a Scotland season ticket this year - already have tickets for the 3 Autumn Tests, but was hoping to get a ST to see Scotland v England (a fixture I've never seen in rugby as I can never get tickets!).
Hopefully it'll be played in front of a full Murrayfield.
My old dad and I used to attend the international matches in the sixties and seventies. What an atmosphere, especially when the Welsh were in town. Great days and great players like Andy Irvine.
The Six Nations is set to stay on free-to-air TV after organisers reached an agreement in principle with the BBC and ITV to continue sharing coverage of the men's and women's tournaments. The four-year deal will run from 2022 to the end of the 2025 edition of the tournament, which has been free-to-air since 2003.
The BBC will broadcast all Scotland and Wales home Six Nations matches and the women's tournament. ITV will show all England, Ireland, Italy and France home games. There will also be coverage of the men's under-20s championship on the BBC.
i'm still not quite clear from that article what the investor is getting out of it, This year private equity company CVC agreed a deal worth £365m with the Six Nations.
