Edinburgh have confirmed BT Murrayfield Stadium as the home venue for the remainder of the ongoing season.

The Scottish regional side has been playing most of their recent home games at Myerside which hosted its first home game in January.

However, the games were shifted back to Murrayfield following heavy rains and frozen pitch at Myerside and a statement released by Edinburgh admitted that shifting between the venues has created issues for spectators as well as the team management.

"The club recognises that alternating between venues does not deliver a consistent matchday experience for supporters," the club said.

"Nor does it provide consistency for Richard Cockerill's squad in generating successful results on the pitch."

Edinburgh's next home game will be against Munster on 3rd March.
