Scotland’s Autumn Test match against New Zealand has sold out in record time.

The match against New Zealand is part of new Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend’s first home series and the match at BT Murrayfield is only the second ever sell-out for an Autumn Test game, with the previous one also featuring the All Blacks back in 2012.

The All Blacks will return to Scotland on November 18 for the first time since 2014, when they narrowly beat their hosts 24-16.

BT Murrayfield, which has a capacity of 67,144, will also see Scotland play Samoa on November 11 and Australia on November 25 in the three match series.

Scottish Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer Dominic McKay, said: “On the back of a positive summer tour we have seen unprecedented demand for tickets for see Scotland play in the Autumn Test series. The draw of seeing the All Blacks and Gregor Townsend’s first home matches as Scotland Head coach have combined to make this Autumn Test series our most popular ever.

“Scottish Rugby is working hard to ensure loyal fans have access to tickets either as part of our great value Season Pass, the two or three match Autumn Test package or to attend individual matches and we look forward to giving all three Autumn opponents Samoa, New Zealand and Australia a warm welcome to BT Murrayfield.”

Tickets for Scotland v Samoa and Scotland v Australia are still available via the Scottish Rugby website.
