Murrayfield

Murrayfield was built on land acquired from the Edinburgh Polo Club and has hosted international rugby since 1925.

The terracing on the east side of the stadium was bulldozed in 1982 to make way for the 10,700 seat East stand.

Terracing on the North and South stands remained until 1990, when new safety regulations demanded an all-seater stadium.

The original West stand as well as the North and South terraces were removed the same year after a debenture scheme raised 37m for the new stadium.

It hosted the biggest ever rugby crowd in 1975, when just over 104,000 watched Scotland play Wales.
