The Thistle Suite is Murrayfield’s largest space for match-day hospitality inside the stadium, with a capacity for 500 guests. It is a popular facility with a busy atmosphere and is regularly sold out.
The suite is situated inside Murrayfield’s West Stand with its own private entrance from the concourse, with a private bar and toilet facilities.
The suite has recently been upgraded with a new attractive bar. It is quite a dark room with no natural light, however enhanced lighting makes it a pleasant space. There are several pillars in the room, which may obscure some guests’ view of the guest speakers on the central stage area.
Private tables are available for 10-12 guests, smaller groups will need to share a table.
The Thistle package includes an excellent Platinum match ticket in the West Stand, which is side-on to the action. Murrayfield is less than transparent in advertising specific seating blocks in advance.
The catering consists of a three-course luncheon created by the Executive Chef followed by post-match refreshments.
You will enjoy a welcome drink on arrival and the bar is complimentary. The wines are specially selected by the sommelier to complement your meal. Please note that Champagne is only available during the reception.
There are dedicated drink hosts providing table service.
There is an entertaining inter-active Q&A with rugby legends during lunch.
There are a few TV screens in the restaurant to view other sporting events or video highlights, but not enough for all guests to enjoy a view.
There are no car park passes included in this package, which means guests will have to use public transport, taxis, or source parking themselves in the Murrayfield area.
A souvenir match programme is included.
The majority of hospitality options have no strict dress codes, and team shirts are generally allowed. However, it is advised to dress smart casual, and according to weather conditions as match seats are outside.
