Tickets for Gloucester Rugby's opening two matches at Kingsholm in the Guinness Premiership are available online at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk from 9am on Thursday (11 Aug).
Philippe Saint-Andre will bring his vastly talented Sale Sharks side to Kingsholm on Saturday, September 10 for what promises to be a super-charged start to Gloucester's season at home.
The Sharks clash is followed by the visit of Carlos Spencer and Northampton on Saturday, September 24 for a game that kicks off at 2.45pm.
The two Premiership encounters follow Gloucester's pre-season schedule that sees the Kingsholm side welcome Calvisano (13 Aug, kick off 3pm), Doncaster (19 Aug, kick off 7.30pm) and Viadana (26 Aug, kick off 7.30pm) to the West Country. Tickets are on sale now for these games.
Meanwhile, tickets for Gloucester's opening match of the new season, a potentially mouth watering clash with Worcester, go on sale on Thursday (11 Aug) at 4pm at Kingsholm.
The club have been allocated 500 tickets for the East Stand Outer and North Stand for the eagerly anticipated encounter against John Brain's side.
Tickets are only available to season ticket holders, who can buy a maximum of two each. They are priced at £20 for adults and £10 juniors.
Season ticket holders are asked to bring their books because voucher A is required to purchase the tickets.
The ticket office is open from Monday to Wednesday 9am-5pm, Thursday, 9am-6.30pm and Friday 9am to 3.30. For ticket information, contact 0871 871 8781 or visit www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk
It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Speaking immediately after the game, skipper Willi Heinz thought that Gloucester had executed their game plan reasonably well and competed hard against Saracens. However, it wasn't enough but the squad will have plenty to work on this week ahead of the derby match against Bristol.
Gloucester may be coming off their best win of the season, the 38-16 victory over Wasps last weekend, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys admits that Sunday's trip to Saracens is an even tougher test.
After a series of contract announcements last week, hooker Richard Hibbard is the latest Gloucester Rugby player to commit to a new contract at the club and told GRTV how much he enjoys playing in the Cherry and White of Gloucester.
Talk about a game of two halves. Things looked grim on Saturday as Gloucester trailed 0-6 to Bristol at half-time. However, Matt Scott's eighth try of the season got Gloucester off and running, and the visitors fell apart as the Cherry and Whites eased to a 26-18 bonus point Aviva Premiership win.
