The 2014-15 Aviva Premiership fixture list has been published today with Gloucester Rugby starting their campaign on the road at champions, Northampton Saints.
The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport, and will kick off at 7:45pm on Friday September 5th.
It's one of four occasions that Gloucester Rugby will feature live on BT Sport in the opening five weeks of the season.
The first home fixture of the season, against Sale Sharks, is the exception. That game will kick off at 3pm, the club's preferred day and time, on Saturday September 13th.
Week three will see Gloucester welcome Exeter Chiefs to Kingsholm on Friday September 19th, with a kick off time of 7:45pm. The following week, Gloucester will travel to London Welsh on Friday September 26th, 7:45pm again the kick off time.
Finally, the fixture against Leicester Tigers at Kingsholm in week five will also be televised and kick off at 3:15pm.
The picks for televised coverage have only been made for the first six weeks of Aviva Premiership action, so all remaining fixtures are subject to change.

Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Speaking immediately after the game, skipper Willi Heinz thought that Gloucester had executed their game plan reasonably well and competed hard against Saracens. However, it wasn't enough but the squad will have plenty to work on this week ahead of the derby match against Bristol.
Gloucester may be coming off their best win of the season, the 38-16 victory over Wasps last weekend, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys admits that Sunday's trip to Saracens is an even tougher test.
Talk about a game of two halves. Things looked grim on Saturday as Gloucester trailed 0-6 to Bristol at half-time. However, Matt Scott's eighth try of the season got Gloucester off and running, and the visitors fell apart as the Cherry and Whites eased to a 26-18 bonus point Aviva Premiership win.
