Clubs at Raeburn Place
As a centre for community sports, Raeburn Place has the potential to become the base for local clubs that are currently nomadic, providing them with access to facilities and a more permanent home.
Raeburn Place is currently home to the Edinburgh Academical Football Club (EAFC) or Edinburgh Accies, the oldest rugby club in Scotland and the second oldest in the world. Members of the club were influential in the growth of rugby both at home and internationally. To learn more about EAFC, please visit their website.
The Edinburgh Academical Cricket Club (EACC), founded in 1855, was the first club to make Raeburn Place its home. Unfortunately, in 2011 EACC had to move to an alternative venue after temporary clubhouse facilities were installed on part of of the outfield. The intention is to reinstate the club at Raeburn Place once new playing facilities can be created. To learn more about EACC, please visit their website.
