Gloucester Rugby are doing their bit to defy the credit crunch by freezing season ticket prices for the second year in a row.
With the regular Guinness Premiership season drawing to an end, Gloucester Rugby are delighted to announce their 2009-10 season ticket prices.
Not only are prices frozen but the 2009-10 prices will also reflect the recent cut in the VAT rate meaning that, in effect, Gloucester Rugby supporters will benefit from a 2.5% price cut. They will actually be paying less for a season ticket than two seasons ago.
In addition, based on feedback from their supporters, the club have introduced a payment plan allowing an individual to spread the cost of a season ticket over 10 months*.
Gloucester Rugby are now assured of Heineken Cup rugby for the fourth consecutive year so their supporters will be able to watch their team take on the best teams in Europe at Kingsholm as well as the top teams in England in the Guinness Premiership.
Existing season ticket holders can guarantee their same seat for next season by renewing by May 29th (3:30pm) and there is also an early bird discount for anyone purchasing by June 26th.
New this year is the introduction of a Season Ticket Holders' Benefit Pack. This contains exclusive offers from Gloucester Rugby and its partners, associates and sponsors. **
Finally, 2009-10 season ticket holders will get exclusive pre booking rights for the new replica Gloucester Rugby shirt which will feature, by popular request, a return to the famed Cherry and White hoops.
There will be plenty to look forward to next season as a follower of Gloucester Rugby with exciting new signings already revealed, an attractive fixture list, a new look playing shirt and a continued commitment from players, coaches and board and investors to take the club to the very pinnacle of European Rugby.
Over to Gloucester skipper Gareth Delve for the final word:
"We've enjoyed tremendous support this season and taking 25,000 supporters to Twickenham recently was evidence of that."
"It means a huge amount to the team and we hope to enjoy more of the same next season."
