THE Buildbase Stand has now completely sold out ahead of Gloucester Rugby's Guinness Premiership clash against Leeds on New Year's Eve (3pm).
There is now no seating left in the ground for the last game of 2005 and supporters have the option of standing in the Shed or other terracing around the ground for the fixture against European Cup opponents.
Gloucester are hoping for a bumper crowd next Saturday and standing tickets are available from the ticket office, www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk or from the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781.
"It is an extremely busy time of year but it is a fantastic opportunity to start the New Year celebration with a top quality rugby match," said Gloucester's managing director Ken Nottage.
"There is no better sporting atmosphere anywhere in the region and we obviously hope a bumper crowd comes along to witness what is a very important Guinness Premiership match for us."
The opening hours for the ticket office are as follows. From 9am until 5pm Monday to Wednesday, from 9am until 6.30pm on Thursday and until 3.30pm on a Friday.

Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
