With the deadline fast approaching for existing season ticket holders to renew their seats for the 2009-10 season, the Gloucester Rugby ticket office is doing brisk business.
A surge of sales in the past 24 hours has seen the club go past the 5,000 mark which includes season ticket renewals and 1873 Club memberships.
Gloucester Rugby Managing Director Ken Nottage said today:
"Considering the challenging climate that we've been facing in recent times, we're very happy with where we stand at present."
"There is still some time left for existing seat holders to renew for 2009-10 and we're confident that, once the weekend applications are processed, we'll have bettered last year's equivalent figure."
The Kingsholm ticket office will remain open until 6.30pm on Friday for supporters who want to renew their seats in person or by telephone. Friday will be the last day in which supporters can book either face to face with the ticket office or by telephone.
However, existing season ticket holders will be able to renew their seats online at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk by entering their membership and reservation numbers over the weekend.
The ticket office will be closed on Monday 15th June in order to process any outstanding applications received by post or hand delivered on Saturday and Monday.
Supporters who wish to hand deliver applications can do so at the Club Shop on Saturday or at the Main Reception at Kingsholm on Monday.
Any seats which have not been renewed will be available on general sale from 9am on Tuesday 16th June. Supporters wishing to purchase these seats can do so either in person at the ticket office or by calling the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781 option 2.
Supporters are also reminded that the early booking discount for purchasing 2009-10 season tickets will expire on Friday, 26th June (3.30pm).
