There are three different memberships, each with different benefits to suit the age of the young Scotland fan:
Up to 4 years: Little Lochies
Little Lochies is our starter Junior Supporters Club membership for the country’s littlest fans! For all those babies who are born Scotland supporters, this is the perfect gift! The Little Lochies membership pack includes a Little Lochie membership certificate, "Little Lochie On Board" car sticker, a bathtime rubber duck and a Scotland comfort toy. We don’t expect our littlest members to renew every year – Little Lochies is really a Scotland supporter “starter” pack – but as we will change its contents from time to time, it might be worthwhile checking back every now and then as your young supporter grows, to see whether you’d like a new pack to keep them going until they reach their 5th birthday! (This is when annual memberships begin, with the Junior Thistles.)
5-12 years: Junior Thistles
Members of the Junior Thistles get access to loads of great benefits, including the chance to be a Scotland mascot and lead one of teams out the tunnel on a matchday! As well as automatic entry into the mascot ballot other benefits include a member’s “Welcome Pack” with an exclusive Scotland merchandise item, an Official Membership Certificate, a Christmas e-Card sent from the Scotland Team and exclusive prize draws and member-only content throughout the year.
13-17 years: Scotland Pack
Scotland Pack members are given a complimentary tour of BT Murrayfield and access to exclusive prize draws and member-only content throughout the year. As well as a BT Murrayfield Tour voucher, members also receive a “Welcome Pack” which includes a Scottish Rugby merchandise item, an Official Membership Card and a Christmas e-Card sent from the Scotland team.
Do Junior Supporters Club members get the chance to be Scotland mascots?
Yes, Scotland Team mascots for home games at BT Murrayfield (usually Autumn Tests or Guinness Six Nations games) are selected in two ways: either nominated by rugby clubs, or selected via a ballot of Junior Supporters Club members. Scottish Rugby emails all members well in advance of the series and winners chosen at random via an online ballot.
Do Junior Supporters Club members get the chance to meet the Scotland players?
Yes, all Junior Supporters Club will be invited to at least one event (e.g. Scotland Training Session) during the year, where there will be opportunities to meet the players for autographs and selfies.
