Match Day Safety Measures for 2022 Guinness Six Nations
As always, everyone who purchases tickets for the Guinness Six Nations championship will be sent Matchday Information emails in advance of each game, with practical information to help you plan your visit and let you know what to expect when you get to the stadium.
We want to reassure fans that all relevant safety and security measures will be in place to ensure BT Murrayfield continues to be a safe venue to visit.
On this page you can find the measures being taken which we hope will allow you to start planning your matchday. For answers to FAQs and more information on ticketing and match day, please visit 2022 Guinness Six Nations.
Before the Game
- There are digital tickets only for Scotland’s Guinness Six Nations games. These will be emailed to all purchasers no later than 7 days prior to matchday. Please check your inbox and any junk folders. You can add your digital ticket(s) to your Apple or Google pay wallet (instructions on how to do this are included in the ticket email) or print them at home to bring with you to the game. Please ensure your email details are correct on your Scottish Rugby e-ticketing account.
- Those of you with a Scotland Season Pass, don’t forget to bring your 2021/22 Season Pass cards with you. These will be scanned at the turnstiles for entry. While match tickets will be issued electronically, this does not affect your Season Pass and you should bring this along on the day to gain entry.
YOU MUST BE VACCINATED OR SHOW A NEGATIVE LATERAL FLOW TEST
All adults (age 18 or over) attending the Guinness Six Nations Series at BT Murrayfield must be fully vaccinated* or otherwise exempt and bring proof of this status to the match. Exemptions are made for those who are, a) unable to get the vaccine for medical reason, or b) taking part in vaccine trials.
Fans unable to provide full vaccination status can instead present a negative Lateral Flow Test result taken within 24 hours of entry to BT Murrayfield. Please use the Government website to record the result and show the text message or email as proof on arrival. Vaccination Status guidelines.
* Fully vaccinated means you have received two vaccinations plus a booster if your second vaccination was more than 4 months ago.
TAKE A LATERAL FLOW TEST
For all event attendees, the use of lateral flow tests immediately prior to attending BT Murrayfield is recommended. These are available to order from the NHS website. For attendees based outside the UK and Ireland, please refer to Scottish Government advice on international travel for your country.
The Scottish Government offers free lateral flow test kits to anyone in Scotland, for use if you are not displaying symptoms of Covid-19. These tests are aimed at finding cases that would otherwise go undetected, so anyone testing positive can self-isolate and avoid transmitting the virus to those around them.
If you have tested positive for Covid-19 in the 10 days prior to the match, have been a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if you feel generally unwell (with symptoms including but not limited to - fever, new persistent cough and a loss of / change in your taste or smell) please follow current Scottish Government guidelines on self-isolation and testing: Covid-19 guidance for individuals with possible coronavirus infection

Travelling to the Game
Masks must be worn on all public transport in Scotland and Scottish Rugby recommends you also wear your mask as you approach the stadium, i.e. within crowded areas when social distancing is not possible.
Ensure all your travel plans – local, national and international – meet current Scottish Government restrictions.
At the Game
- You are urged to come early – and no later than 30 minutes prior to kick off – to ease the congestion at the stadium and assist with vaccination status checks.
- Please have your tickets and vaccine certificates ready for inspection on arrival.
- Hand sanitising stations will be located throughout the stadium.
- Please be respectful to those around you, particularly in the seating area (e.g. face away from other persons as they pass).
- Please remain in your seat whenever possible. If you do need to leave your seat, wait for a time when the gangway is clear and always follow the directional signs indicating which way to go.
- Scottish Rugby recommends you do not remain in the indoor concourse areas for any longer than is necessary (i.e. being outdoors is better and safer).
- If you start to feel unwell during the match, please speak to a steward as soon as possible. If you display symptoms of Covid-19, you will be taken to an isolation room and assessed by a doctor.
By law everyone aged 12 and over must wear a face covering whilst inside, unless you have a medical or other valid exemption (as set out in Scottish Government guidance). We recommend face masks are worn throughout the other areas of the venue.
For security reasons we strongly advise patrons not to bring bags to BT Murrayfield. However, anyone who has a requirement to do so (for example medical/childcare reasons/highland dress sporrans) should go to a designated search lane where bags will be searched and tagged prior to entry into the stadium. Please be aware that access via this route to the stadium may take slightly longer than through non search lanes.
