Scotland Rugby Tickets 

 

The Scottish Football Union (SFU) was first formed in 1873 and is the second oldest Union of its kind. The Union were a founding member of the International Rugby Board along with Wales and Ireland, England would not join until later in 1890 and in these days they did not sell too many Scotland Rugby Tickets. The SFU changed its name to the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) in 1924 and in 1925 Murrayfield was opened for international games.

Scotland played England in the first ever international rugby football game in 1871 which Scotland won. This game was as a result of an advert placed in the sporting weekly of the time signed by the captains of five Scottish clubs inviting any team made up from the whole of England to a game of rugby. Scotland won 1-0, both teams scored a try but Scotland also scored a try and a conversion which give them the point as there was no points for only a try.

It was in 1883 that the Home Nation Championship was founded with Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland, this has since included France then much later Italy to form the Six Nations Championship.

In 1925 Scotland beat all the other nations to win their first Grand Slam and in 1926 they became the first of the home nations to beat England at Twickenham this must have increased interest in Scotland Rugby Tickets.

Scotland have taken part in the Rugby World Cup since the inaugural cup in 1987 and helped to host it in 1999.

There was a break for most concerned in rugby during the war years but after it resumed in 1946 Scotland defeated a New Zealand and Forces team. There was little else of note until they held New Zealand to a 0-0 draw in 1964, the Calcutta Cup was won for the first time in fourteen years and they and Wales shared the Five Nations title.

In 1982 Scotland recorded their only away win against a Tri Nations side beating Australia 12-7 and in 1983 they drew 25-25 with the All Blacks followed by a Grand Slam in 1984.

Scotland got through to the quarter final in the inaugural World Cup in 1987 but went out against New Zealand.

The next great period to come for Scotland was in 1990 when they took to the field in Murrayfield against England for the only game which stood between either of them and a Grand Slam, Scotland went on to beat the old enemy 13-7 to capture their third Grand Slam. 

The 1991 World Cup saw Scotland win their pool and beat Western Samoa in the quarter final, this took them on to the semi-final where they were beaten at Murrayfield by England, and they finished up in fourth place that year.

In the 1995 World Cup they got through the pool stages but lost out in the quarter-final to New Zealand.

In 1999 Scotland won the last ever Championship before it went from being the Five Nations to the Six Nations in 2000 with the addition of Italy. They also went out of the World Cup this year in a quarter final defeat to New Zealand once again.

In the 2003 World Cup Scotland made their way to the quarter finals only to be knocked out by Australia and they were knocked out in the same round again in the 2007 World Cup by Argentina .

The modern era has not been too kind to Scotland but with a historic win over South Africa in the 2010 Autumn Internationals maybe the tide is set to turn, and perhaps Scotland Rugby Tickets will continue to sell well. For 6 Nations Tickets click on the link up above.
