CLUB TICKETS: UPDATE
Club Name: Whitecraigs Club Client Reference: 22413
Dear Club Ticket Secretary,
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support this season.
We are delighted with the level of engagement we have had with club ticket secretaries during season 18/19 and wish to continue this into the new season and beyond. We intend to hold Club Ticket forums later in the year and will circulate a survey before the new season commences. Your patience during this last season, a season of administrative change for us all, is greatly appreciated. In the meantime, if you would like to provide feedback or have any suggestions for the ticketing team, please don’t hesitate to contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Club commission generated through online sales or Scotland Season Passes during season 18/19 is expected to be paid in June. We will be in touch to update you nearer the time.
Membership Services Team
I would also like to take the opportunity to update you as to some changes within the ticketing team at BT Murrayfield. Many of you have worked closely with Linda and Lynn over the years and I am delighted to advise that Linda and Lynn will continue to look after the day to day management of our prior rights groups, of which clubs is a large part of. Linda and Lynn now form part of the Membership Services team, led by Christine Horsburgh. Many of you may have met Christine, having worked for with us for a few years now. Christine will look after the strategic management of the Membership Services function of our business and looks forward to working with you all.

Summer Tests 2019
With the Rugby World Cup taking place from September-October, there will be no Autumn Tests in 2019. Instead, Scotland’s final preparation for the tournament in Japan will be home and away fixtures against France and Georgia. The game against France offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy international rugby in the summer sunshine, while the Georgia game is the first ever Scotland Test to played on a Friday evening.
Having reviewed the process along with the sales from the last two years we held summer tests, we have concluded that the best way for your club members to purchase tickets for these two games is via the online URL. Many of your members are familiar with this process now, having signed up for a ticketing account during the past season or so.
This is a flexible option, allowing club members to buy at their leisure and print at home right up until kick off for each of the games. Club commission will be generated for your club on individual match tickets for the Summer Tests by using the Club URLs found in the club toolkit or on the Scottish Rugby Website. Please let us know if you foresee any issues with this.
Summer Tests 2019 – Tickets go on sale: 10am, Wednesday 8 May
Guinness Six Nations 2020
The application process for home Guinness Six Nations games will continue to be the same as it was during season 18/19 and the club ticket toolkit will be updated with the relevant downloadable documents by June and we will contact you when these are available to be downloaded. The deadline for home 6 Nations 2020 club ticket applications will be mid-September in order to confirm bookings and process tickets as efficiently as possible. Pricing for the away 6 Nations matches in 2020 is expected mid to late August and applications forms will be circulated as soon as this is known.
If your club’s ticket secretary details have changed, or are due to change, please let us know by emailing email@example.com and ensure the new details are updated on SCRUMS.
We are expecting a busy week in the ticket office this week, however we will be sure to respond to any enquiries within a week of receipt.
Thanks again and we look forward to working closely with you during Season 19/20.
