Scottish Rugby have asked fans to apply for tickets in the hope crowds will be allowed back into Murrayfield next month.
The Scots take on Georgia in the capital on Friday night, with the warm-up match going ahead behind closed doors.
But, with Gregor Townsend’s side also scheduled to host France and Fiji in the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup, the SRU have told supporters that limited numbers could be permitted to watch.
Around 700 fans were allowed into Murrayfield in August to see Edinburgh face rivals Glasgow, but hopes that could spark a return of supporters to sporting events across the country have so far been dashed by the Scottish Government.
A message to fans said: “Ticket ballots for Scotland’s two Autumn Nations Cup games against France and Fiji are now open.
“Although we are unable at this stage to guarantee crowds will be permitted, Scottish Rugby must still prepare for such an eventuality.
“The Scottish Government will be reviewing its guidelines on public gatherings, events and physical-distancing at least once before Scotland’s next home games.”
Scotland host France at Murrayfield on November 22 and Fiji six days later.
