Edinburgh Rugby’s next home match against Ospreys on Friday 28 February (kick-off 7.35pm) will be played at Boroughmuir.
The move will see the club play its first competitive home match outside of the national stadium since May 2004.
Edinburgh Rugby managing director, David Davies, said:
“Everyone at the club is really excited about this temporary move to Meggetland.
We’ve taken a lot of time and care to select the best venue for this fixture and that limits the inconvenience to our fans. We’re working hard to make the most of this opportunity to pack out the stands with black and red.
“On behalf of Edinburgh Rugby I’d like to express our sincerest thanks to our fans for their understanding and support of this relocation, to the staff at Edinburgh Leisure, which manages the venue on behalf of City of Edinburgh Council, and Boroughmuir Rugby, for their help in hosting this fixture.
“We look forward to building a positive working relationship and making this match a success.”
Boroughmuir Rugby & Community Sports Club Chairman, Bill Watson:
“We are naturally delighted to be able to host the Edinburgh Rugby game at our venue. We believe this will enable new fans from the community to come and experience some top class rugby and enjoy Meggetland.”
Boroughmuir Rugby members are reminded that the car park will be closed Friday afternoon until late into the evening.
Tickets for Edinburgh Rugby’s clash with Ospreys are on sale now priced from £5 for under-18s, £10 for students and senior citizens and £20 for adults.
