TICKETS for Gloucester Rugby's European Challenge Cup semi-final against Worcester on Saturday, April 22 at 12.35pm - to be shown live on Sky - have gone on sale today (Monday).
Gloucester are offering huge discounts in all areas of the ground for the visit of their locals rivals as Dean Ryan's side attempt to reach their first final appearance since the victorious Powergen Cup triumph in 2003.
The ticket office will remain open until 7pm from Monday to Thursday this week and until 5pm on Friday to give supporters extra opportunity to purchase their tickets.
After this week, the ticket office will revert to its normal opening hours.
All supporters with a quarter-final ticket stub are entitled to buy tickets at a discount, however, it does not guarantee them the same seat as the majority are held by season ticket holders.

Season ticket holders have until 5pm on Friday to purchase their own seats and then after April 7, they will be released for general sale.
The early booking price will, as always, continue until Thursday, April 20.
If supporters have a ticket stub, they need to purchase their tickets from the ticket office and not online. For more information on tickets, please contact 0871 871 8781 (option two)
