Murrayfield is a sports stadium in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and is the home of Scottish Rugby Union. It once held the record for the largest ever attendance for a rugby union match, with 104,000 watching Scotland play Wales in 1975. At present its all-seater capacity is 67,800, making it the largest stadium in Scotland.

Murrayfield, named after the area of Edinburgh it is located in, is located in the west-end of Edinburgh, just off Corstorphine Road, right next door to the Murrayfield Ice Rink, and close to Edinburgh Zoo.

It has good public transport links, being particularly well-served by bus links along Corstorphine Road. However, its nearest railway station is Haymarket, which is a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium.

The SFU built the first Murrayfield which was opened on 21 March 1925. Previously internationals had been played at Inverleith. The first visitors were England, whom Scotland beat to win their first Five Nations Championship Grand Slam.

Murrayfield has hosted football (soccer), American football and rugby league. The stadium has also seen performances from major rock artists like David Bowie, U2 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In July 2005, Murrayfield hosted the final Live 8 concert, Edinburgh 50,000 – The Final Push, with performances from the likes of James Brown, Texas, The Proclaimers and Travis.
