Arrangements for accredited media for the RBS 6 Nations Championship match Scotland v England, Murrayfield Stadium, Saturday 13 March (kick-off 5pm)
Scottish Rugby looks forward to welcoming accredited media to Murrayfield Stadium tomorrow for the Calcutta Cup clash.
Please note the following arrangements:
All media will be required to collect a pass, ticket (for the Press Box) or bib (for photographers) from Scottish Rugby's Accreditation Centre. This is a red-brick building adjacent to Murrayfield Ice Rink at the north-west corner of the stadium. The Centre can be accessed via Riversdale Crescent.
Media accreditation can be collected from 11.30am-4.15pm.
Those reporters/photographers who already hold a series pass are still required to collect either a press box ticket or photographers' bib from the Accreditation Centre.
Photographers - please note that you MUST return your bib after the match. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of any subsequent media accreditation application for matches at Murrayfield.
Two suites will be in use for photographers - the photographers' room in the South Stand Tunnel and a new suite in the Lower Rowan (centre of the North Stand). Please use the suite to which you have been allocated. Both will have a dedicated media wi-fi system. Should you require any assistance with wi-fi during the game please contact your Scottish Rugby Communications Department contact in the first instance.
A similar dedicated wi-fi system will be in place for journalists in the Bill McLaren Press Gallery and on the Press Deck.
Scottish Rugby will be providing lunch for accredited media in the Hospitality Village (access via Gate D). Lunch will be served from 2-3.30pm.
Post-match all media activity will take place in the Press Conference room (which can be accessed via the stairwell from the Bill McLaren Gallery). We ask for your co-operation please to ensure unimpeded access to this room at all times.
Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
