GLOUCESTER supporters are reminded they have until Thursday at 6.30pm to save up to £2 on their tickets ahead of Saturday's mouth watering Premiership clash against Northampton.
Thursday is the last day supporters can buy tickets under the early purchase scheme to be a part of the unique Guinness day at Kingsholm (2.45pm).
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.
There are still tickets available for the visit of Carlos Spencer and for more information, contact www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk or contact 0871 871 8781.
The ticket office will be open on Friday from 9am until 3.30pm and on Saturday at 10am.
Gloucester Rugby face Exeter Chiefs this Saturday in the European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final, and Charlie Sharples, who starts at full back is relishing the challenge of the big Kingsholm occasion.
Gloucester meet the Exeter Chiefs for the fourth time in competitive action this weekend, this time in the semi-final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that this is the sort of game that Gloucester want to be involved in on a regular basis and that he and his team are looking forward to it.
Following the 29-26 loss to Harlequins, club captain Billy Twelvetrees spoke of his disappointment that the Cherry and Whites were unable to cash in on the home side's indiscipline and lose a lead on Saturday afternoon.
Number eight Gareth Evans admitted to a collective feeling of frustration as Gloucester lost narrowly at Harlequins on Saturday, but insisted that there are plenty of positives to draw upon ahead of next Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Exeter.
Gloucester travel to the Stoop on Saturday afternoon to take on Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership. The Cherry and Whites make just two changes from last weekend's win over Connacht as they seek consistency and continuity in their play as Nick Walshe told the local media this week.
Speaking to GRTV after the final whistle, Tom Palmer praised the Cherry and Whites concentration and desire to hold on to a narrow 14-7 victory. The second row topped the tackle charts with 19 as he led the home team's resistance.
Supporters who are still to purchase tickets for Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Exeter Chiefs at Kingsholm (kick off 7:45pm) are reminded that Early Bird prices are only valid until 6:30pm on Thursday evening.
The Gloucester Wheelchair Rugby team travelled to Fenton Manor Complex, Stoke on Trent last Saturday to take part in the final round of the GBWR Super Series of the season, knowing just one win would be enough to crown them Division 3 Champions.
