Guard of Honour and Junior Supporters Club

Clubs and schools are invited to take to the pitch at BT Murrayfield on match day and become part of the team. The Guard of Honour is made up of 20 Primary 4/5 children who will lead Edinburgh Rugby and the visiting team on to the main pitch at BT Murrayfield while children from Primary 6 will take part in a seven-minute 10-a-side match.

Pre-match Guard of Honour (Primary 4 & 5)

Edinburgh Rugby's 'Guard of Honour' gives Primary 4 and Primary 5 aged youngsters the chance to roar on their favourite Edinburgh Rugby players as they take to the field.

You will be assigned a private BT Murrayfield 1925 suite so that you can refresh and prepare for the day ahead. If you are travelling by coach, please let us know in advance so we can reserve you a complimentary parking space within the stadium.

A selection of Edinburgh players will visit you in the 1925 suite to meet the kids, coaches and families who have travelled with the guard of honour and half-time game participants. Photographs, autographs and questions are welcomed and there will be Edinburgh Rugby squad cards available for each participant for autographs as well as a match day programme. Other items (balls etc) can be brought along to be signed also.

Each participant will also be issued with an Edinburgh Rugby flag which they can keep. The Guard of Honour will need these for welcoming the teams on to the main pitch at kick-off. 

Half-time game (Primary 6)

On the same match day, the Primary 6 players from the guard of honour club get the opportunity to play at half time in front of the Edinburgh Rugby crowd.

Your club or school has the chance to play in front of thousands of fans on the hallowed BT Murrayfield turf in what is, for most, a once-in-a-lifetime experience...until you pull on the international jersey...

This opportunity is available for Primary 6 aged players.
