Sept 20-23: Any football or rugby games going on?

My husband and I will be in Edinburgh from Sept 20-23 and I was wondering if there are any live football or rugby games going on near by. Thinking of surprising him with something like this. Also, I'm sorry if there is none of the sort and I sound clueless.

TIA

Football fixtures will not be released until mid-June for the new season (and Sept is in the new season). I think that Rugby fixtures will probably also be released during the Summer for the coming season.

In regards to Football teams - keep an eye out for whether Hibernian (Hibs) or Heart of Midlothian (Hearts) are drawn to be at "home" (in a football fixture they will be the first team - e.g. Hibs Vs Falkirk). Hibs and Hearts are both Edinburgh teams.

However, if that weekend clashes with a World Cup Qualifying weekend then there will be no top flight games scheduled.

The SPL fixtures for Season 2013/14 will be published on Wednesday 19 June 2013 at 9am.

Good chance there will be some game on in Edinburgh. Scottish football may be a little different to what he is used to however :)

Check here at that time www.scotprem.com/content/default.asp…

Rugby - I don't think the fixtures are released yet either - check here http://admin.edinburghrugby.org/

too early for any internationals

The Hibs game could be moved to a Friday or a later time on Saturday or Sunday or potentially the Monday.

Don't plan too much just yet.

Itsmeagain2: Thanks! Where is the stadium located? Would tickets only be able to be purchased at the door?

GingerChimp: Thanks! How much do tickets run?

Does fixtures mean the times and details?

When will Rugby schedules be posted ? Where do they play? What is the teams name?

Info about hibs here hibernianfc.co.uk/page/Home/0,,10290,00.html

Ticket info here - http://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/page/HowToBook

Price about £25

The rugby schedules for the RaboDirect Pro 12 should be out soon.

Edinburgh Rugby ( as they are known) play at Murrayfield

Fixtures do mean the date and time of the game.

You cannot drink alcohol at football matches in Scotland, but you can drink at Rugby matches.

Good to know Williamnt!!!

How much do the Edinburgh rugby tix run? Can you buy them at the door or is it best to buy prior?

Does the stadium get pretty packed for the Hibernian games?

We have never been to a pro soccer or Rugby game before.

Thanks!
