The official 2020-2021 Scottish Rugby Travel, Training and Leisure Collection from Macron was released in-store and online on Friday 21st of August 2020.
For 2020/21, Scotland adopts a familiar look for the home shirt, with the navy blue shirt, white collar, white and gold trim, white shorts and navy socks, while the alternate shirt reverts to white, with the same gold trim as the home shirt. The shorts are navy blue, with white and gold panels.
Founded in 1873, the Scottish Rugby Union is the second oldest rugby union in the world. Scotland played in the first-ever international match at Raeburn Place in Edinburgh, a game in which they beat England 1-0 on the 27th March 1871.
Scotland traditionally has played in all navy blue shirt, white shorts and navy socks since their inception on Monday 27 March 1871. The combination went largely unchanged until Cotton Oxford took over the SRU kit contract in 1998. They introduced purple to the home strip and controversially a bright orange to the away strip which had previously always been white.
Manufacturers Umbro, Pringle, Cotton Oxford, Canterbury and Macron have all had stints manufacturing the shirt. Macron, an Italian sportswear manufacturer, has held the current license since 2013 with the current contract running through to 2026. Telecommunications giant BT is the current Scotland rugby shirt and leisurewear sponsor.
Now based at BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh, the Scottish national side annually competes in the Six Nations â€“ a competition which they have won 15 times throughout its various incarnations. The most recent of these was back in 1999, the last ever Five Nations Championship.
Along with the Six Nations itself, Scotland also plays for 4 other trophies during the Six Nations; the Triple Crown (awarded to Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales if they beat all other Home Nations); Calcutta Cup (vs England); Centenary Quaich (vs Ireland); and the Auld Alliance Trophy (vs France).
Summer 2021 Tests
In 2021 the Scotland rugby team are set to face England A, Romania and Georgia in their annual Summer tests. We await confirmation of these fixtures and kick-off times due to the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Autumn Internationals 2021
Scotland will hopefully see the return of crowds at BT Murrayfield this Autumn with the countries high covid-19 vaccination levels paving the way. 2020's fixtures were all scrapped due to the limitations on international travel and replaced with the Autumn Nations Cup.
Gregor Townsend's men will face several tough tests against three Southern Hemisphere teams. South Africa will come off the back of a British & Irish Lions tour and Japan will remember their last match against Scotland fondly from the Rugby World Cup in 2019.
• Scotland v Australia, Sunday 7 November
• Scotland v South Africa, Saturday 13 November
• Scotland v Japan, Saturday 20 November
Guinness 2022 6 Nations Fixtures
Scotland made great strides in their Six Nations performances in 2021, picking up away wins against England and France for the first time in many years. Despite earning three wins and only being defeated by a total of 6 points against Ireland and Wales, Scotland still only managed a 4th place finish in the Guinness Six Nations table. More will be expected and hoped for in 2022.
• Scotland v England, Saturday Feb 5, Edinburgh
• Wales v Scotland, Saturday Feb 12, Cardiff
• Scotland v France, Saturday Feb 26, Edinburgh
• Italy v Scotland, Saturday March 12th, Rome
• Ireland v Scotland, Saturday March 19, Dublin
Scotland has taken part in every edition of the Rugby World Cup since it's creation in 1987, with a best-placed finish of fourth back in 1991. In the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the Scots lined up in Pool A, alongside Ireland, Japan, Russia and Samoa. A disappointing loss against Ireland kicked off their campaign and a final-round loss to the magnificent hosts, Japan, saw Scotland exit at the pool stage for only the second time in their history at the tournament.
However, finishing in third place gains Scotland automatic qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup which will be taking place in France. The draw took place in December 2020 and Scotland have been drawn in a Pool B alongside current holders South Africa, Ireland, Asia/Pacific 1 and Europe 1. Even making the Quarter-Finals will be a difficult ask in this tough pool!
