Murrayfield Stadium is home to the Scottish Rugby Union team and is located in Edinburgh, the country’s capital city. Murrayfield is named as such because of the area of Edinburgh in which it can be found; the west end of Edinburgh in Murrayfield!
It is by far the largest stadium in Scotland as it seats 67,130 people at full capacity but it is not as large as other UK homes to national rugby teams such as the Millennium Stadium which is home to the Welsh Rugby Team or Twickenham which houses the England Rugby Team. The Millennium Stadium can seat 74,500 people and Twickenham can host 82,000.
Until recently, Murrayfield Stadium could take up to 67,800 but the capacity was decreased in order to install incredibly large big screens in the stadium.
