GLOUCESTER Rugby's managing director Ken Nottage has hailed the launch of the new season ticket package for the 2008-09 season - after more than 5,000 were sold in the first seven weeks.
Season tickets went on general release this week and Nottage said: "The initial enthusiasm and take-up has been almost unprecedented at this stage of the close season.
"It confirms our justification of not only going on sale early but also freezing prices at this season's levels. The take-up in the C&G Grandstand and High Tech Stand has been exceptional and we hope sales will remain strong through the summer to watch what is arguably one of the best Gloucester sides ever next season.
"In the current economic climate we have tried to appreciate the demands this puts our supporters under and have structured out season ticket package accordingly. Gloucester is renowned for its support and the place it holds within the community and that is more important to us than ever.
"The facts remain that being a season ticket holder is the only guarantee there is of securing your place at Kingsholm for knockout games in the Heineken Cup and the Guinness Premiership. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every supporter who has already committed for next season at this stage - it's fantastic."
Seated tickets are still available in the Gold, Silver and Bronze section of the C&G Stand as well as in the High Tech Stand. Shed and West Terrace tickets are also available. Season tickets are available at the discounted prices until Friday, June 27th.
