Scotland sell out against Wales

Scotland will run out for their final RBS 6 Nations home match against Wales to a sell-out crowd.

The Scottish Rugby Union have sold all 67,144 tickets for the match against the Welsh a week on Saturday, with fans set to flock to Murrayfield in the hope of seeing a third consecutive win from the Dark Blues.

The Scots have already triumphed over Italy and Ireland and another win against Wales would keep them in contention for the Six Nations crown.

The crowd at the match against Wales on Saturday, March 9, will bring the cumulative Murrayfield attendance for international matches this season to more than 300,000.

Dominic McKay, Scottish Rugby's Director of Commercial Operations, Communications and Public Affairs, said: "As Kelly Brown said after Sunday's match against Ireland, a huge thank you to supporters for their backing of the national team and the game of rugby in our country.

"The atmosphere on Sunday was phenomenal, even for seasoned Murrayfield spectators, and what's especially pleasing for us is the number of young people, families and women who we are attracting to the stadium and who want to be with the Scotland team and create a truly inspiring occasion.

"We're striving to make a visit to Murrayfield on a Scotland match day the greatest rugby day out, so we've enhanced a lot of the activities around the ground.

"We will continue to work with our supporters to further improve their experience when they come to Murrayfield and thank them for their feedback on the improvements we've made so far.

"We do occasionally receive return tickets as people find that their plans change, so if you're still looking to attend the Scotland v Wales match keep an eye on our website as any return tickets will be released for sale there."
