Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium History
Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium is the capital of Scotland and the home ground of the Scottish Rugby Union.
Murrayfield is Scotland’s biggest stadium and replaced Inverleith Park to host international games in the city in April 1925. Scotland celebrated the opening of its new stadium by winning a Grand Slam with a victory over the ‘Auld Enemy’ England. All the current stands were built in 1983, significant renovations in 1995 saw many parts of the venue refurbished to the high standards we see today. With redevelopment, the modernisation gave the rugby venue its first floodlight system while also adding a running track.
Murrayfield’s record attendance of 104,000 in 1975 stood as the world record until 1999. The venue has hosted many memorable games, especially against their fierce rivals England, who were the first rugby team to visit the ground. Scotland and England compete each year for the Calcutta Cup – an ornate silver trophy. Scotland and England played the first Calcutta Cup match at Reburn Place, Edinburgh, in 1879, which ended in a draw.
