CURRENT Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders have until June 16 to renew their places in the gold and silver seats of the Grandstand and also the Buildbase Stand before they go on general release.
The season ticket package was launched at Gloucester's final Guinness Premiership match of the season against Wasps when a capacity 12,500 crowd witnessed one of the most exhilarating games of the season.
Since then, Gloucester have qualified for the Heineken Cup and last Sunday crowned their season with victory over London Irish in the European Challenge Cup.
The club have this week gone through the 1,000 applications barrier and is advising existing season ticket holders, who wish to guarantee their same seats for the Heineken Cup campaign, to waste little time in renewing their applications.
"The applications for places is always huge and there is a very real possibility we will be over-subscribed in a number of areas next season because of the fact we are back in the Heineken Cup and won a trophy on Sunday," said Gloucester's managing director Ken Nottage.
"Existing season ticket holders in the seated areas of the stadium need to be aware they have until June 16 to guarantee their existing places. We have already had a very positive response to our season ticket package and that is fantastic ahead of what will be one of the most exciting seasons in recent times.
"The support that was generated at the Stoop in the European Challenge Cup final was fantastic and we want as many people as possible involved next season. We have fixed the prices in the Shed and terracing areas of the ground and believe this is a major incentive to commit to a season ticket."
