Gloucester Rugby is on schedule to match last year's season ticket numbers after they broke the 4,600 figure for the new 2005/06 Guinness Premiership campaign.
A number of areas have already sold out including the Gold and Silver seated categories in the main grandstand and the Buildbase Stand that was opened last season.
Just over 4,200 season tickets had been sold at this time last year and the Kingsholm club is on target to match last year's total of 7,200.
Season tickets are still available for The Shed and other terrace areas, and the Club is advising supporters to book soon if they want to guarantee their place at the ground for next season, as season ticket numbers are limited.
The Club has to limit the number of season tickets it sells in order to meet Premiership, European and Powergen criteria for away supporters, governing bodies and sponsors.
Gloucester's ticket office has had a busy few months with a new ticketing software system installed and the demand for seated season tickets exceeding supply.
The Shed area has its own ticket category for the new 2005/06 season, with the remaining terrace area being sold separately.
There will be a new bar building for Shed season ticket holders, as well as improved access throughout the ground. All season ticket holders for the 2005/06 season have free access to the pre-season fixtures against Calvisano (13 Aug) and Doncaster (19 Aug).
Commenting on gloucesterrugby.co.uk managing director Ken Nottage said: "The 4,600 mark is a good comparison to last season and the applications are still coming in. The demand for seated season tickets has again increased, and the three seated sections sold out quickly.
"We have created a new Shed season ticket, and the numbers are limited. Work has started on improving access areas across the ground, especially in the Shed and terrace areas. The new bar area, which was formerly the playing department gym, is also taking shape, and will offer Shed season ticket holders their own bar during the match and for all supporters after the game."
Supporters can purchase season tickets direct from the ticket office at the Kingsholm ground, or download an application form from the official website. For further information call 0871 871 8781 or visit www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk
