Gloucester Rugby's first home fixture of the season will be against local rivals Worcester Warriors who are returning to the Aviva Premiership following their relegation after the 2009-10 season and subsequent 2010-11 Championship winning campaign.
The opening six round of fixtures, before the first two rounds of the LV= Cup, also see trips to Harlequins and Sale Sharks in addition to home games against Bath Rugby and London Irish (televised on ESPN, kick off 1pm).
Looking further ahead, Gloucester are pencilled in for a home Christmas fixture against London Wasps and an away game at Saracens on New Year's Eve. LV= Cup and Heineken Cup fixture details will be announced as soon as possible.
