Gloucester's pre-season plans will start with the Kingsholm club travelling to France to take on Heineken Cup champions Toulouse in a four-team tournament at the end of July.
As well as Toulouse, Gloucester will compete against fellow Premiership side Leeds Tykes and French side Clermont Auvergne (formerly Montferrand) in the Issoire tournament.
The summer tournament takes place between 29 July and 31 July and will be part of the Club's pre-season schedule after the players return to training at the end of June.
The tournament will see two semi-finals on 29 July at 5pm and 7pm (draw to be made soon), following by a runners-up clash and the final on Sunday 31 July at 3pm and 5pm, respectively.
Issoire is a French rugby club that plays in the leagues just below the top two divisions and is 20 minutes (by car) south of Clermont Ferrand (where Clermont Auvergne are based).
Gloucester will also be taking part in the Compass Group Middlesex Sevens on Saturday 13 August.
The West Country side were runners-up in last season's event and will compete against 15 other teams for this year's trophy, including all the Premiership clubs, NEC Harlequins, Blackheath, Bedford Blues and last year's winners, the British Army.
Gloucester is scheduling a number of other pre-season fixtures that will be announced soon.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
Henry Purdy was the man in the right place at the right time as he touched down to score a vital try in the 23-23 Aviva Premiership draw at Worcester on Friday. After the game, he spoke to GRTV about the frustrating inconsistency in Gloucester's game at the moment.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
Mariano Galarza and Ross Moriarty are both back from injury as Gloucester entertain the Newcastle Falcons at Kingsholm in the Aviva Premiership (Saturday, kick off 3pm). Willi Heinz will skipper the side from scrum-half.
