THE TWICKENHAM Stoop has been confirmed by the ERC as the venue to stage Gloucester's European Challenge Cup final against London Irish.
The game will kick-off at 12.15pm on Sunday, May 21st.
Gloucester are now awaiting confirmation of their allocation but we expecting 5,500 tickets to be made available.
The club is also awaiting from the ERC clarification of the breakdown of this allocation and the pricing categories. We are also waiting for a delivery date for the ticket stock to arrive at Kingsholm to be made available to season ticket holders.
More information on tickets will be made available later this week.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
