Edinburgh Rugby is inviting the local community to find out more information about their proposed move to Myreside from January 2017. The Guinness PRO12 side will begin the 2016/17 season at Murrayfield, but plan to switch to Myreside from January until the close of the season.

Edinburgh Rugby Managing Director, Jonny Petrie, said: “This move to Myreside is about creating a strong future for the club and creating a better experience for fans and players, but we are very mindful that this move will be a change for the communities who live and work in the area.

“We would like to encourage the community to attend this event to find out more information about our proposals and pose any questions they may have.

“In addition to sharing our plans to erect temporary stands and adapt the ground for Edinburgh Rugby fans, we will be able to share our transport plan to alleviate traffic and parking pressures on match days. This will include the creation of a park and ride service and additional car parking provision.”

Representatives from the club will be available to discuss the plans between 4 – 7pm* at the Myreside Pavilion (79 Myreside Road) on Wednesday 31 August.

Members of staff from George Watson’s College will also be attending the drop-in alongside Edinburgh Rugby.

Jonny Petrie, added: “We believe there will be many benefits to our move to Myreside, not only for fans and players, but also local businesses who will receive a boost. However, we want to make sure we address any concerns from the local community.”
