Scotland fans showed an enormous appetite for the RBS 6 Nations when they snapped up almost 12,000 tickets for their country's home matches against in the 2009 championship in the first three hours of public sale.
Frank Hadden's side will face Wales, Italy and Ireland at Murrayfield next year and interest in the matches is exceptionally high.
Such has been the demand from Scotland supporters on the back of the Autumn Test performances that the latest batch of tickets for public sale for the visit to Murrayfield of Ireland next March has already sold out.
The next planned public sale of tickets for the Ireland game will be on January 21. In the meantime, tickets remain on sale for the games against Wales and Italy.
By noon more than 6,500 tickets had been bought for the game against the Irish and some 4,500 for the game versus Wales.
Scotland face Wales on Sunday February 8 at 3pm, play Italy on Saturday February 28 at 3pm and will take on Ireland on Saturday March 14 with a 5pm kick-off.
