GLOUCESTER Rugby's hugely successful family open day will once again herald the start of the new season when it is held at Kingsholm on Monday, August 25 from 1pm until 4pm.
The massively popular event is one of the most successful days of the season and will give supporters the chance to meet Gloucester's top stars and new signings and take part in on-field activities on the pitch.
"Nobody needs to tell any employee or player at Gloucester Rugby simply how important the community is to the club and that is why we were so keen to use this day to get as many people into the club as possible," Gloucester's head of sales and marketing Pete Grzonka told www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk
"Our supporter base is quite simply the best around and for supporters to have the chance to meet the players, practice skills on the pitch and get involved with the club it is a great way to start the season.
"So much has happened in recent seasons off the field but we felt, as a club, it was crucial to try and show our supporters and the community we are there for them and give them something not many other clubs do.
"There will also be the opportunity for supporters to tour the C&G Grandstand, changing rooms and hospitality suites. In some ways it is a bit of a thank you for all their support and it will be a great way to kick-off the season."
Amongst the face painting and bouncy castles, Under-16s will get the chance to practice their skills alongside RFU qualified coaches and Gloucester players, buy the latest merchandise or even snap up a late season ticket or brick in the Walk of Legends.
The Lion's Den bar will be open and a refreshments wagon will be in place behind the East Stand.
The event is free and will run from 1pm until 4pm and gates will open at 1pm. Supporters are advised that car parking at Kingsholm is limited.
