Gloucester Rugby Club has sold more than 2,500 tickets in just over 24 hours for Sunday's Zurich Wild Card clash with Newcastle Falcons (Sun 8 May, Kingsholm, kick off 3.15pm).
Tickets went on sale at 11am on Bank Holiday Monday, and the recent rivalry between the Falcons and Gloucester saw the first two thousand snapped up.
The Falcons will arrive in the West Country boosted by the recent return of Jonny Wilkinson, and Gloucester know they'll need to hit top form to keep their Heineken Cup hopes alive.
The winner of Sunday's clash at Kingsholm will play in the Zurich Wild Card final at Twickenham on Saturday 14 May, with the successful side gaining entry to next season's top-flight European competition.
Tickets are available for the fixture at Kingsholm on-line at www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com, from the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781 and in person from the ticket office.

The remainder of the seats and terrace tickets are already on general sale. The ticket office is open between 9am-5pm on Tuesday (3 May), 9am-5pm on Wednesday (4 May), 9am-6.30pm on Thursday (5 May) and 9am-5pm on Friday (6 May).

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.
A try scorer in the 36-18 Aviva Premiership win over Wasps at Kingsholm on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted that Gloucester would enjoy the moment but can't get too carried away. The team got what they deserved but the winger wants these performances to be more frequent.
England Head Coach Eddie Jones has made two changes to his side to play Australia in Saturday's final match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series at Twickenham Stadium (kick-off 2.30pm, live on Sky Sports 2). Jonny May lines up on the left wing.
