CURRENT Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders have until 3.30pm on Friday - June 16 - to guarantee their seats in the gold and silver sections of the grandstand and also the Buildbase Stand before they go on general release.
The club have already processed more than 2,500 applications and supporters wishing to guarantee the same seats for the forthcoming Heineken Cup campaign have until Friday to return their application forms or book over the phone.
There are already a large number of applicants waiting for seats, with more than 70% of the gold and silver sections of the Grandstand already sold.
"It's amazing how quickly the time comes round and the last thing we want is for existing season ticket holders to miss their preferred seats," said managing director Ken Nottage.
"The take-up has been very good - the excitement generated by our win in the European Challenge Cup and a place back in the European Cup has really fuelled the imagination of the supporters, particularly with the squad Dean Ryan has put together for the season ahead.
"There is a very real chance that in some areas of the ground we will be over-subscribed and that is something last year's season ticket holders need to be aware of."
