Edinburgh to face Newcastle Falcons in pre-season

The club can confirm that it will travel to Kingston Park to face last season’s Aviva Premiership Semi-Finalists, Newcastle Falcons, in a pre-season fixture on Friday 24 August (kick-off 7.45pm).

The encounter sees last season’s warm-up fixture at The Greenyards reciprocated – which saw Edinburgh battle to a 14-10 victory - as Richard Cockerill and his squad continue their preparations ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Tickets for the clash will be priced at £10 for adults and concessions, and £5 for juniors (U16s). Fans can book via 0871 226 6060, Newcastle Falcons website or by simply purchasing on the night.

Kingston Park’s East and West Stands (seating) and the South Stand (covered standing) will be open for the encounter.

Both of the club’s pre-season fixtures have now been confirmed following the announcement that Edinburgh will host Todd Blackadder’s Bath on Friday 17 August.
