About Edinburgh Academical Football Club

The Edinburgh Academical Football Club (EAFC) is the oldest rugby club in Scotland (in fact it is the oldest “football” club of any code predating Queens Park by ten years) and the second oldest in the World. Their (Our?) ground at Raeburn Place, located a mere 10 minutes walk from Princes Street, is in the Edinburgh New Town area of Stockbridge, can truly be said to be the cradle of rugby football in Scotland.

The Club’s name omits “rugby” from its title as its formation predates the split in rugby and association rules which occurred in the 1860’s.

Accies play at Raeburn Place in the heart of Stockbridge, Edinburgh, a mere ten minutes walk from Princes Street.

Parking

For those visitors who live too far afield to walk to the ground or to use public transport, please note that there is currently very limited parking at Raeburn Place, with parking on match days reserved for match officials and a few players. However, on-street parking is available in East Fettes Avenue and Inverleith Place, just a few minutes walk from the ground.
