MEDIA RELEASE FROM SCOTTISH RUGBY - Arrangements for accredited media: RBS 6NC Scotland v England
Please read the following arrangements carefully:
Your accreditation pass and Press Box ticket (if you’re a journalist) or your bib (if a photographer) will be available from 12.45pm
at the accreditation centre next to the Murrayfield Ice Rink. This is located just off the footbridge from Riversdale Crescent, which in turn is accessed off the main Corstorphine Road. The centre will close for the collection of media passes at 4pm.
If you are collecting a series pass (purple in colour) we ask that you hold on to this for the RBS 6 Nations Championship Scotland v France match at Murrayfield on Sunday 26 February and on that day that you only visit the centre to pick up your seating ticket or your bib.
If you are a photographer you will have to collect a bib as well as your pass. The bib will be colour coded specifying your location around the perimeter. Purple is for access all areas, blue is for the west stand touchline and red and green are for a position behind the North and South stand goalposts respectively (red and green bibs can be swapped in agreement between yourselves). Please note bib colours will be assigned prior to match-day and cannot be changed.
Furthermore, you will be required to sign for your bib on collection and return it to the specified areas in the South stand photographers’ room or Lower Rowan photographers’ room. Failure to do so will result in accreditation applications being declined for future matches at Murrayfield.
Photographers MUST attend a pre-match briefing. This will take place at 4pm in the photographers’ room in the South Tunnel and at 4.15pm in the suite in the Lower Rowan. This briefing will contain important information about arrangements for the presentation of the Calcutta Cup to the winning team.
Media hospitality will be available from2.30-4pm in the Upper Hawthorn Suite in the South Stand. This is only available to accredited media.
Please note that the post-match media conference for both teams will be in the Upper Hawthorn Suite. Once the formal media conference is concluded the players' mixed zone will also operate in that area.
Once again, and also on behalf of the Scotland team sponsor, RBS, we look forward to seeing you at Murrayfield tomorrow.
Scottish Rugby’s Communications and Public Affairs team looks forward to welcoming you to Murrayfield tomorrow for the RBS 6 Nations Championship match between Scotland and England.
