Dominic McKay, Scottish Rugby’s Director of Communications and Public Affairs, said:
“We very much look forward to welcoming all supporters to Murrayfield next Saturday and again on Saturday 20 August when we face Italy, ahead of the team departing for the IRB Rugby World Cup.
“Having reviewed our ticketing policy, we have decided to trial match day ticket sales for our two EMC Tests against Ireland and Italy.
“Following the two games we will evaluate the effectiveness of match-day ticket sales and will seek the views of our supporters and stakeholders on this issue.
“The national squad and everyone at Scottish Rugby greatly appreciate the continued and loyal support the team receives.
“With tickets on sale now, I would encourage fans to buy in advance however facilities will be in place at Murrayfield to ensure that everyone who wants to come to support Scotland can do so this Saturday and also for the game against Italy.”

Adult tickets bought in person at the Stadium on match day will cost £15, while the price for under 18s and students remains at £5. (The premium for adult tickets bought in person on the day reflects the additional cost involved in providing this service.)
