The Premiership sponsors are set to turn Gloucester's home into 'black gold' heaven with competitions, prizes and fun for the visit of All Blacks legend Carlos Spencer.
Guinness will run two competitions for the Gloucester faithful. Prior to the game, supporters will aim to get snapped by the roving photographer and Guinness promotions girl. At half-time on the big screen, the winning group pictured will receive one of the following: Hospitality at a Gloucester match, a piece of signed memorabilia, a year's supply of Guinness or another Guinness related prize.
At half-time, the winners will make their way on to Kingsholm to pick one of four envelopes with the prize inside.
The Guinness Girls around the ground will also be handing out 'Try Time Cards' with a number from 1 to 22 marked on it. If your player scores the last try of the game then you will be entitled to a complimentary pint of Guinness at the Guinness Special Events Bar.
There will be a Guinness Village feel to the Shed and Buildbase corner of the ground with the Guinness special events bar and promotions team at the ground all day.
