Club History       Glasgow Rugby was created by the Scottish Rugby Union in 1996 to compete in the                         Heineken Cup.

After two seasons Glasgow merged with the Caledonia Reds to form Glasgow Caledonians, but the Caledonian label was dropped at the start of the 2002/03 season, with the team becoming Glasgow Rugby.

Glasgow Warriors emerged after another re-branding, in 2005/06 In the summer of 2012 Glasgow Warriors moved from Firhill to Scotstoun, which had previously been the club's training base.

Stadium History: The facility first opened its doors to the public in 1915 as Scotstoun Showgrounds after the land was developed by the Glasgow Agricultural Society as a venue for agricultural shows.. It was soon being used as a venue for sporting events and as             a result the Grandstand was erected. The facility underwent a huge renovation in 2008.

                                Renovations involved building brand new state of the art stadium facilities, with a                            full size rugby pitch in the in-field. The stands were extended creating a North Stand                      and South Stand which together can seat up to 5,000.

                                It became the training base for the Glasgow Warriors in 2009, and in the summer                             of 2012 they moved from Firhill to play their home games at Scotstoun.

Scotstoun is a modern stadium which doubles as Glasgow’s athletics venue and so has a running track around the pitch. The stadium is owned Glasgow Life, an “arms-length” branch of the City Council.

There are two permanent stands. The Main Stand sits on the southern side of the ground, and despite the running track, there are good views of the pitch. One suggestion is to sit on the eastern side of the stand if you can, as the western end can be a bit chilly due to the prevailing winds.

The North stand on the other side of the pitch is a smaller structure, but is handier for outside bars and the clubhouse.

For some high-profile matches a temporary covered standing area has been set up known as the East Terrace. But check that this exists – you could get soaked through.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
