What is the Scotland Supporters Club?
The Scotland Supporters Club is open to all adult Scotland supporters wherever they live in the world. For many, the key benefit of membership is the pre-sale access to purchase match tickets before any general sale, plus the opportunities to meet the players during the season. However, for those who are not able to attend the games, fans still receive issues of the new members-only digital magazine throughout the year as well as a digital ‘Welcome Pack’. Membership runs between January to December and costs £35 per annum. You can find out more about the Scotland Supporters Club 2021 below and here.
Can I buy the membership now?

Is there a limit to the number of memberships I can buy?
Yes - it is one per person.
What are the Scotland Supporters Club membership benefits?
1. Prior access to all Scotland home match ticket sales
Scotland Supporters Club members are given access to every Scotland ticket sale held throughout the year, including Scotland Season Pass and all individual match ticket sales. For games where demand is extremely high (e.g. Scotland v England) a ballot may be operated, but for most games the pre-sale window will provide members with a limited-period to buy available tickets and passes before they go on general sale. Although memberships are available to purchase at any time throughout the year, there are however deadlines in place by which must purchase your membership in order to be granted pre-sale access for each of the following key sales.
2. Prior access to all Scotland Women and Scotland U20 match ticket sales
Pre-sale access for tickets to any Scotland Women and Scotland U20 home Six Nations games where the sale of tickets falls within the membership period (January-December).
3. Digital Magazine: ‘The Front Row’
Three issues will be produced during the Guinness Six Nations Championship, with further issues delivered later in the Summer/Autumn. Each one is packed with interviews, articles and great photography. Members will have access to the full archive of a past issues. You can take a sneak peek at the ‘teaser’ editions of previous “Front Row” issues here.
4. Invitations to Scotland events
As soon as COVID-19 allows it, Scotland Supporters Club members will be invited once again to Scotland Team events. Subject to these Government COVID protocols, events will include an invitation to watch at least one Scotland training session over the membership period, plus advance access to any other events or appearances open to the public organised by Scottish Rugby during the year.
5. Digital Pack
Members will be welcomed to the Scotland Supporters Club with a digital pack sent directly to your designated email inbox. This will include a message from Head Coach Gregor Townsend, membership certificate, Scotland Squad poster/2021 fixture List to download, a selection of Scotland player/action shot screensavers and links to all the issues of ‘The Front Row’.
6. Digital Membership Card
Members will also have the opportunity to download a digital membership card to their Apple or Android devices, which can be used to access special members-only events. for example, you apply to attend a training session or other Scotland event, your card will be activated for that specific event to allow you to gain entry by having your membership card on your smartphone scanned or shown at the entrance. (Those who do not have a smartphone and can’t download the digital card, will be sent an e-ticket to print at home.)
Which ticket sales are members given prior access?
Members are given access to every sale throughout the year, including Scotland Season Pass and all individual match ticket sales, for Scotland, Scotland Women and Scotland U20s.
Will I be able to buy tickets for Scotland’s away games?
No. The match ticket presales relate to home matches only.
Is there a limit to the number of match tickets I can access with my membership?
The ticket limits will reflect the ticket limits applied to each match, with the minimum being 2.
If I buy a Supporters Club Membership will I be guaranteed tickets to Scotland matches?
Scottish Rugby’s ability to offer tickets for matches is totally dependent on the Scottish Government and their decisions on all public gatherings and events. Therefore when purchasing this membership, you will be given access to a pre-sale to matches - we cannot guarantee you will secure tickets.
If crowds are not permitted to the games, will I get a refund on my membership?
There will be no refunds on membership purchases. Please review our Supporters Club Terms and Conditions in advance of purchase. Specifically 5.3, extract below;
5.3 For the avoidance of doubt, Membership does not guarantee that a Member will be entitled to purchase a match ticket for any match or to attend any of Scottish Rugby’s matches. Further, in line with Covid-19 restrictions, the offering by Scottish Rugby of a Membership does not guarantee that any matches will be made available for crowds during the Term.
Full Terms and Conditions can be found at: https://www.scottishrugby.org/tickets-and-events/tickets-terms-and-conditions
Who decides if spectators are allowed in to watch the games?
The decision will be down to the Scottish Government, however, we continue to work closely with them on planning for the Scotland internationals
I am a Scotland Season Pass holder – what happens to my season pass?
The Supporters Club Membership is different to the Scotland Season Pass.
Scotland Season Pass holders will receive information early in the new year regarding the renewal or sale of Scotland Season Passes for season 2021/22. Please visit Scotland Season Pass 2021/22for the most up to date information.
When can I buy a Scotland Supporters Club membership?
The membership runs all year (January to December) and whilst we encourage fans to secure their membership early in order to take advantage of as many benefits as possible, supporters can purchase at any time throughout the calendar year.
Please note, pre-sale period for 2021/22 Scotland Season Passes and 2021 Autumn International tickets have now passed.
How has the membership changed from previous seasons?
As well as there being only one membership period (January to December) all benefits Scotland Supporters Club are now online: we have moved away from paper-based products so you will receive a digital welcome pack and digital membership card, as these are no longer being sent by post.
What do I get a digital membership card for?
Your membership card will be sent to you to download to your smartphone. If, for example, you apply to attend a training session or other Scotland event, your card will be activated for that specific event to allow you to gain entry by having your membership card on your smartphone scanned or shown at the entrance.
What if I do not have a smartphone or cannot download my digital membership card?
If you do not have a smartphone and are unable to download your digital card, you will be invited to email us prior to the event and you will be sent an e-ticket for you to print at home and bring along with you.
What happens if COVID-19 restrictions are still a threat?
In the event that we have a restricted crowd capacity for any game or event, members will still be invited to apply for tickets but this may be subject to a ballot.
Is there a children’s version of the Scotland Supporters Club?
Yes, the Junior Supporters Club is available especially for the Scotland Team’s youngest fans. There are three different membership levels, each with different benefits to suit the age of the young Scotland fan. You must be over 18 to buy a young person one of these memberships. For full information please visit our Junior Supporters Club page.
What is happening to the NEVIS and MACDUI memberships?
The NEVIS and MACDUI membership tiers replaced the Scotland Supporters Club and all international match tickets and packages for the 2020/21 season, which had to be temporarily suspended last year because of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Scottish Rugby remains focused on working towards a safe return of supporters to BT Murrayfield, and as part of our cautious hope that life can return to some level of normality in the coming months we are continuing to plan for the new season. As the NEVIS and MACDUI were for this season only (Season 20/21) the sale of those has closed and the Scotland Supporters Club is returning for 2021 and the ticketing related benefits largely apply to Season 21/22 (whereas the Nevis was for Season 20/21).
I have a NEVIS Membership. Do I need to buy a Scotland Supporters Club membership?
Scottish Rugby remains focused on working towards a safe return of supporters at BT Murrayfield and will be in touch with NEVIS members as soon as we have any news regarding the remaining Guinness Six Nations games against Ireland and Italy, which will be reviewed in the weeks ahead. NEVIS Members will continue to receive ‘The Front Row’ during the Guinness Six Nations Championship. However, as pre-sale access to Season 2021/22 passes and tickets falls within the membership benefits for the 2021 Scotland Supporters Club, you would need to purchase the new Scotland Supporters Club membership to receive the ticket access benefits attributed to the new season (2021/22).
When will I receive my digital ‘Welcome Pack’?
Digital ‘Welcome Packs’ will be emailed to members 5 working days after purchase - separately to your digital membership card.
