Supporters can then mark their calendars for the second and deciding leg of world rugby’s oldest derby the following weekend (Friday 30 December, 7.35pm) with BT Murrayfield set to be packed out once again as both clubs celebrate the 150th anniversary of the famous fixture in an unmissable clash.

New Year home fixtures in Rounds 12 and 13 see Zebre Parma and Cell C Sharks visit DAM Health Stadium on Saturday 7 January (3pm KO) and Saturday 28 January (5.15pm KO), with the clash against the Durban outfit the first-ever meeting between the two sides on Scottish soil.

Reaction from Head Coach Mike Blair

“Today’s announcement only adds to the excitement for what is set-up to be another thrilling URC season, with huge match ups across the year for supporters to look forward to.

“With all 18 Rounds now confirmed, you can now get a sense of the season blueprint and those key match-ups that will be crucial as we look to build on a really promising URC campaign last season.

“We're all looking forward to our home opener against Dragons RFC at DAM Health Stadium, the squad and our support team continue to work tirelessly as pre-season preparations intensify.

“I’d encourage all Edinburgh supporters who’ve yet to get their Season Ticket to do so. Being part of ‘year one’ at DAM Health Stadium was such a special experience for all of us connected to the club and we need your backing once again for another massive campaign.”
