The Scottish Building Society Pre-Season Series is included in the 2021/22 Season Ticket Membership and gives supporters the chance to watch Head Coach Mike Blair’s squad in action in the club’s new home for the very first time.

Match tickets will go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am starting at £5 for U18 and £10 for adults, with the club expecting high demand for a place in the stands of these opening games. Full match ticket pricing is included in the pricing table below.

Scottish Building Society – the world’s oldest building society – sponsor the Pre-Season Series as part of their continuing support for the club, having been a proud member of the Edinburgh Rugby Partner Family since the 2019/20 season.

Edinburgh Rugby Managing Director Douglas Struth, said: “We’re delighted to receive the continued backing of Scottish Building Society who sponsor the first-ever Edinburgh Rugby matches to be played in our new purpose-built home.

“It’s a significant moment in Edinburgh Rugby history and, with back-to-back Saturday afternoon kick-offs, we’re hoping to create a real festival atmosphere in and around the ground, where we can celebrate the return of rugby together as a club, alongside our supporters, who’ve waited so patiently to finally step foot in their new home.

“We’re really looking forward to hosting two quality opponents in Newcastle Falcons and Benetton Rugby. Both matches will give our supporters a taste of what’s to come in 2021/22, with Head Coach Mike Blair now at the helm and several new signings ready to pull on the blue and orange jersey.

“We continue to work hard behind the scenes on our plans for our first crowd at the ERS and make this and every game a great occasion."
