Gloucester Rugby season ticket sales are now in excess of 6,500 for the forthcoming campaign but there are still some great seats to be snapped up.
The deadline for existing season ticket holders to renew their seats passed some weeks ago so all remaining seats are now up for grabs.
At present, we still have seats available in the Gold, Silver and Bronze sections in the South Stand and also in central positions in the East Stand.
The club's preseason friendly has now been confirmed so season ticket holders will benefit on a discount on tickets for Andy Hazell's Testimonial game against Bath on August 15th as well as free entry to the friendlies against Connacht (August 22nd) and the Ospreys (August 29th).
Gloucester Rugby's opponents in the Heineken Cup have also now been confirmed with the likes of Biarritz Olympique, Glasgow Warriors and Newport Gwent Dragons guaranteed visitors to Kingsholm.
Season tickets can be purchased in person from the Ticket Office at Kingsholm, online at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk or by phone on 0871 871 8781.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
