NEXT Monday, August 14 and Tuesday 15 Gloucester Rugby are installing a new server and phone system at Kingsholm.
This will mean that our normal email and internet service will be at best intermittent and will only be run on a priority basis.
No emails will be lost but they will arrive over the next 48 hours. It means that online or over the phone ticket service will not be in operation. All supporters wishing to purchase tickets for upcoming matches will need to come to stadium in person.
All emails will be answered but it will take time, so the club ask all supporters to be patient during this time.
There will be engineers on site on Monday and Tuesday, whom will be installing the IP phone system and replacing our current phone system and software.
Gloucester Rugby hope this disruption will be short and the benefits it will bring will be significant, so please be patient.
