The top-class rugby on display at the PRO12 games is matched only by the great atmosphere, which makes for a perfect family night out.
Stadiums and fixtures
Edinburgh Rugby play their home games at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh while, from the 2012-13 season, Glasgow Warriors will relocate their games from Firhill Stadium to the revamped Scotstoun Stadium, which will also be host to the fantastic HSBC Sevens World series festival.
The pro season runs from September to May with games taking place on Friday evenings. You can check out the current season’s fixture lists on the Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors websites.
Both teams also compete in the prestigious Heineken Cup, going up against 22 of the best pro teams from England, Ireland, Wales, France and Italy.
The participating teams are divided into six pools of four, with the top two teams in each pool going on to play in knock-out quarter and semi-finals before the final. Edinburgh’s Murrayfield stadium has played host to the final twice – in 2005 and 2009 – but unfortunately, neither Scottish team has made it beyond the quarter finals since the competition started in 1995.
The full fixture list for the competition can be found on the European Rugby Cup website.
