Murrayfield Stadium (usually just known as Murrayfield) is a sports stadium located in the west end of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Its all-seater capacity was recently reduced from 67,800 to 67,130 to incorporate the largest permanent "big screen" in the country though it still remains the largest stadium in Scotland and one of the largest in the United Kingdom overall.
The stadium is the home of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU), and is primarily used as a venue for rugby union and hosts most of Scotland's home test matches, as well as the Edinburgh Sevens, the Scottish Hydro Electric Cup final, as well as Magners League and Heineken Cup matches.
Although mainly a rugby union stadium, Murrayfield has in the past hosted American football, rugby league and association football matches and music concerts. The most notable of the latter was the Edinburgh 50,000 - The Final Push concert as part of Live 8.
A behind the scenes tour of Murrayfield Stadium allows you to follow in the footsteps of legends as you visit the dressing rooms, players tunnel, Royal Box, hospitality suites and the world famous pitch. When tours recommence, they will be conducted Monday to Friday. Weekends and Bank Holidays are by arrangement only and the group must consist of a minimum of 10 people. Tours last approximately an hour and a quarter.There are no stadium tours on the days when Edinburgh Rugby has a home game at Murrayfield. In addition, tours are not run the week before or two days after a home International. This is primarily for safety reasons as there is a lot going on in the Stadium at these times involving additional personnel, equipment and machinery.
