Two titans will collide on Saturday the 18th of November, 2017 when Scotland face the New Zealand All Blacks at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. This will be the second of three autumn internationals to be played by Scotland in 2017. The air is electric with anticipation to see how these two sporting giants battle it out.

Scotland will have their work cut out for them because New Zealand is a very powerful team. The Scots had a disappointing start in the World Cup, losing to Tonga 50-4, while New Zealand beat Samoa 38-8.

That said, Scotland has shown remarkable improvements since the last time they faced New Zealand during the autumn internationals in 2014. Of course, this has strengthened the support from the Scottish fans.

BT Murrayfield is the historic home of Scottish Rugby. This iconic stadium has hosted some of the largest events in sporting history. Stadium seating is available in standard or superior class, and for those who can afford the best seats in the house, the Executive Boxes are there for you to enjoy. This private facility has spectacular views over the pitch and can accommodate up to fourteen seated or twenty standing.
