You could sit pitch-side at Scotland v England

Scottish rugby fans will have the chance to sit pitchside for next year’s Calcutta Cup clash against England at Murrayfield.

With the road to Japan fast approaching, Tennent’s Lager, the official beer of Scottish Rugby, is rewarding loyal fans the chance to win a money-can’t-buy experience to see the national team play pitch side with its latest on-pack promotion.

Bespoke packs of Tennent’s Lager with a new design celebrating the home of Scottish rugby have unique batch codes for shoppers to enter online and unlock prizes. The top prize offers a pitch-side seat in the Best Seat in the House Tennent’s dug-out for them and three friends at the Scotland v England match at next year’s Six Nations.

This will be the first meeting between the two since Scotland reclaimed the Calcutta Cup during the 2019 championships. The match will take place at the BT Murrayfield stadium on 8 February 2020.

The Best Seat in the House truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the lucky winners getting to follow in the footsteps of some of rugby’s greats, walking down the tunnel onto the pitch pre-match, rubbing shoulders with their Scotland heroes along the way.

To top off the VIP experience, a personal waiter is also provided, bringing out food and pints of Tennent’s Lager during half time. Post-match the guests will be taken to the Up & Under bar to enjoy some live entertainment.

That isn’t the only prize up for grabs. There are also four £100 Scotland Rugby gift shop vouchers available alongside 10 of the newly released Scotland Rugby home tops.

Alan McGarrie, group brand director at Tennent’s, said: ‘It’s fantastic to be able to celebrate Tennent’s Lager’s sponsorship of Scottish Rugby by giving something back to the fans of the national team.

‘The pitch-side seats are an incredible prize to win and truly give a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but with the gift shop tickets and home tops also on offer, we’d highly suggest grabbing a pack and checking for that unique batch code.’

In store from 9 September, winning 10, 12 and 15 can packs are available to buy at all major retailers.
