Six Nations Rugby in Edinburgh 2022

Reasons to look forward to the Six Nations 2022

In February and March, we welcome rugby fans to our hotel, before they make their way to Murrayfield for the Six Nations in Edinburgh. If you’re planning on joining them in 2022, we advise you to book your hotel early as match weekends are extremely popular and hotels fill up quickly. To get you in the rugby mood, here are some reasons to look forward to the Six Nations 2022 …

Rugby, Rugby and More Rugby

Scottish fans are gearing up for two months of adrenaline-pumping, hard-hitting, bone-crunching rugby action. On Saturday 5th February, the Six Nations 2022 kicks off and Scotland will once again have a chance to throw their rugby weight around. The six nations that will compete in this annual tournament are Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, Italy and France. See 2022 fixtures.

Home Ground Advantage

Fans will flock to Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on 5th and 26th February, in the hope of gaining some home ground advantage. As a proud sporting nation, those that can’t catch the game in the stadium, will be watching from home or from their favourite watering hole. There is always a great atmosphere on match day!

Hopefully History Repeats Itself

For most Scots, Scotland’s first game of the tournament is the biggest – the Calcutta Cup. This year, Scotland will play England on opening day, 5th February, here in Edinburgh. Forget winning the tournament, it all comes down to whether or not Scotland beats England. Ever since Scotland beat their southern rivals in the first ever rugby union international match in 1871, rivalry between our two nations has been rife. In fact, any true Scottish fan will tell you that there are only two teams in the world to support. Scotland, and whoever happens to be playing England.

Scotland’s Chances

The Scotland Team are strong and we are feeling positive that they will do well in the Six Nations 2022. They are currently ranked 7th in the world, ahead of Wales and Italy. France may currently be favourites to win, but Scotland will give them a run for their money. We’re backing blue .. are you?

Six Nations Accommodation

Parliament House Hotel is around a 20-minute bus or taxi ride from Murrayfield Stadium. Edinburgh is always busy on match weekends, so we advise you book your hotel room in plenty of time, as well as pre-booking any taxis.
