Gloucester's Powergen Cup quarter-final against Bristol Shoguns is a 13,000 sell-out. The website rounds up the latest ticket news including Nigel Melville's thoughts on Sunday's Stade Francais clash.
The local derby match is followed by two more SOLD OUT regional clashes against Worcester (Sat 29 Jan) and Bath (Sat 19 Feb).
There are just over 500 tickets (including a small number of seats) remaining for Gloucester's vital Heineken Cup clash with Stade Francais on Sunday 16 January (kick off 3pm), and director of rugby Nigel Melville is urging the city to get behind the team for this vital European game.
Gloucester need to win with a try bonus point, prevent Stade Francais from getting any pool points, and score at least two tries and nine points more than the French side on the day to qualify as pool winners.
"We know, from our Munster experience two years ago, that the crowd will play a crucial role. In my opinion we have the best fans in Europe, last Friday they stood in their hundreds on the terraces of Ravenhill in the pouring rain screaming us on.
"It's impossible to thank each and every one of them personally, but the whole squad is so proud of the role they play and the efforts they make to support the team.
"Sunday is the last game of the Heineken Cup pool and we're looking forward to the atmosphere that'll be in place."
Tickets are still available for Gloucester's remaining home Zurich Premiership games after the Bath clash.
