BT IN £20 MILLION DEAL WITH MURRAYFIELD STADIUM

The home of Scottish rugby union is to be renamed the BT Murrayfield Stadium in a £20 million deal.

The four-year agreement will begin from the start of next season, strengthening ties between Scottish Rugby Union and the telecoms giant.

Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh currently have BT as their man shirt sponsor. 

“This is a momentous day for Scottish Rugby,” Mark Dodson, the SRU chief executive, said. 

“We are very proud to bring BT back into our family of sponsors on a size and scale that is unprecedented both for Scottish Rugby and, we believe, Scottish sport."

The Scotland rugby union national side have played their home games at Murrayfield since 1925.
