DAM Health Stadium to host Scotland Women Summer Tests

​Scotland Women will play two international fixtures against USA and Spain at DAM Health Stadium this summer, with the matches providing crucial competitive tests ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2021 (playing in 2022) in New Zealand.

Edinburgh Rugby Season Ticket Members will get priority access to buy tickets to both fixtures, with pre-sale access going live on Friday 1 July for Scotland Season Pass holders, Scotland Supporters Club Members and Edinburgh Rugby Season Ticket members. Secure your Season Ticket Membership NOW.

Scotland’s schedule will begin with a test against USA on Saturday 27 August, who are currently ranked fifth in the World Rugby rankings, at the home of Edinburgh Rugby (kick-off time to be confirmed).

The Eagles have recently returned to home soil following the conclusion of the 2022 Pacific Four Series in New Zealand, where the side competed against the Black Ferns, Australia and Canada.

Scotland’s last encounter against USA was during the 2006 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Edmonton, Canada, with the Eagles taking the spoils in the 5th place play-off.

The side will return to DAM Health Stadium two weeks later to face familiar opponents, Spain (Sunday 11 September, kick-off time to be confirmed).

Scotland’s previous clash with Spain was during last year’s Rugby World Cup Europe Qualifiers tournament in Parma, with the Scots holding off a late comeback from Spain to record a 22-27 victory.

Scotland Head Coach Bryan Easson said: “To host two formidable sides such as USA and Spain as part of our Summer Test campaign will provide a fantastic opportunity for our squad to develop and grow ahead of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

“We thoroughly enjoyed playing in front of a record home crowd against England at DAM Health Stadium in April so hopefully we will have another great crowd to send-off the team to New Zealand.”
