In recent months as the scale of the challenge presented by the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, it became apparent that fulfilling the traditional Autumn International fixtures would not be possible particularly as a result of travel restrictions preventing certain international teams from competing in scheduled fixtures. It has now been confirmed that Scotland will take part in a newly created tournament - the Autumn Nations Cup. This will take place during November and December and will replace the traditional Autumn international window for 2020.
The format for the Autumn Nations Cup will be two pools of four – Group A will include England, Ireland, Wales and Georgia with Group B comprising of France, Scotland, Italy and Fiji.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I buy tickets for these games?
As we don't know what social distancing rules will be in place at the time of the games, we don't know how many seats will be available for sale until much nearer the time. For this reason, we are busy working on revised ticketing plans for any tickets that will be made available for sale in line with Government guidelines for mass events.
An announcement will be made shortly on how supporters will be able to access any available tickets for the Autumn Nations Cup games at BT Murrayfield.
Where can I watch the games?
