Scotland’s performance in last year’s Rugby World Cup tournament, which saw them narrowly miss out on a spot in the semi-finals, has led to record demand for this year’s RBS 6 Nations matches according to viagogo, the world’s largest ticket marketplace and Scottish Rugby’s official partner.

In particular, viagogo has reported that Scotland’s opening match against England is currently generating the highest demand across all the RBS 6 Nations matches on the site.

Last month, Scottish Rugby announced it had seen huge support, with all of Scotland’s home games in the 2016 RBS 6 Nations selling out in record time.

Dominic McKay, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Rugby, said: “Interest in the game in Scotland is at a high, with more people watching in person and on TV than ever before.

“That support has helped us invest record-breaking sums into the grassroots game, the benefits of which we hope to see in the domestic, professional and Scotland games of future generations.”

A spokesperson for viagogo commented: “Excitement for the RBS 6 Nations has been growing year-on-year and so far we have seen record demand following Scotland’s impressive RWC campaign.”

“Rugby fans have been snapping up tickets, desperate to see what will undoubtedly be an exhilarating fixture in the 2016 sporting calendar.”
