Demand has been high for the fixture featuring the Rugby World Cup runners-up, with sales significantly beyond the level they have reached at the same stage in previous years. With a month to go before the match takes place, the attendance looks sure to exceed the 61,584 figure when France last visited Murrayfield two years ago, a game that also took place on a Sunday and which marked Andy Robinson’s first RBS Six Nations fixture as Scotland coach.
Ticket prices are £35, £50 and £75 for adults, and £17.50, £25 and £37.50 for students and under 18s.
The reintroduction of the car park behind the West Stand at Murrayfield – closed in recent years but brought back by the new administration at the SRU following demand from disgruntled supporters – has proved popular, but there are a still places available for both the England and the France matches. The cost is £25 per car, and includes back-pitch entertainment around the all-weather synthetic pitch.
