The original fixture was postponed on New Year’s Day because of a waterlogged pitch at Scotstoun.

The Warriors are hoping for a record crowd for a game in Glasgow, having increased the capacity of Scotstoun to around 10,000. The current record is 8,852, which was set when the two teams faced each other at Firhill on 1 January 2012.

The Warriors lead Edinburgh 20-16 after the first leg at Murrayfield on Boxing Day.

Tickets purchased for the original fixture on New Year’s Day are still valid, although tickets purchased in the east and west stands will be automatically re-issued as new stands will be in place for this game.

More than 6,500 tickets have already been sold for the match and additional tickets are available now from www.glasgowwarriors.org and over the phone by calling 0844 800 3490 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm).
