Are the latest planned Scottish Rugby ticket price hikes going to drive fans away from attending matches at Murrayfield?

Some would say prices are already far too high as it is and upping the costs of what is already an expensive day out is the last straw.

I have been flooded with public and private messages from supporters angry at price hikes for home games that they say are set to be introduced.

One fan, Jay Mac, said on X, formerly Twitter: "Scottish Rugby increasing my season pass from £210 to £605 for a seat closer to Haymarket than the pitch. £86 per game including Scotland vs Portugal."

"However, some season pass seats straddle categories so their holders will have a hybrid season pass, where their category for the Autumn Nations Series, will be different to the one for the Guinness Six Nations.

"As the season pass is the sum of the individual tickets for each game, to accommodate those seats straddling the two stadium layouts, the season pass will now be categorised as category one to seven."

Scotland Rugby News understands Murrayfield chiefs believe their ticketing policy is good value for money compared to home unions. We also understand Scottish Rugby has sold almost a third of the season passes since they were put up for renewal last week.
