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.

The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues.
