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."
Previewing Friday night's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Sale Sharks, Head Coach Laurie Fisher acknowledged the fine home record that the Salford based outfit have built up this season, but is looking for Gloucester to round off their campaign on a high note.
Speaking to GRTV following the 16-9 victory over Exeter, Tom Savage felt that Gloucester needed that win after a tough few weeks and hopes that it acts as a springboard to a good end to the season for the Cherry and Whites.
A week on from '...letting down ourselves, the jersey and the supporters...', skipper Greig Laidlaw was full of praise for his team mates following the 16-9 Aviva Premiership win over Exeter Chiefs at Kingsholm on Friday evening.
With Gloucester looking to bounce back after exiting the European Rugby Challenge Cup last Saturday, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media that the visit of Exeter Chiefs on Friday evening (kick off 7:45pm) will be a big test of character for the Cherry and Whites.
Rob Cook couldn't hide his disappointment when he spoke to GRTV following the 21-23 defeat at home to Newport Gwent Dragons on Saturday, stating that Gloucester simply hadn't been good enough on the day as their reign as European Rugby Challenge Cup holders comes to an end.
Thirteen years on from Gloucester Rugby's famous Powergen Cup victory over Northampton at Twickenham, many of the players and management from that side are gathering once more to recreate that famous day.
