Just two weeks left for Season ticket holders to secure seats!
15 May 2009 11:55am
THE DEADLINE for existing Gloucester Rugby Season ticket holders to renew their own seats is fast approaching with only two weeks remaining.
Gloucester Rugby launched their 2009/10 season ticket campaign by freezing season ticket prices for a second year in a row.
Not only were prices frozen but the 2009/10 prices also reflect the recent cut in the VAT rate resulting in supporters benefits from an additional 2.5% price cut. This means that supporters will actually be paying less for a season ticket than two seasons ago!
The introduction of the payment plan also allows supporters to spread the cost of a season ticket over 10 months which has already proved popular.
Existing season ticket holders can only guarantee to purchase their same seat for next season by renewing by May 29th (3.30pm). Renewals can be made online by clicking here or by calling the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781 option 2. Please note that you will need your reservation and membership numbers to renew online.
Supporters wishing to upgrade, move seats or purchase prime seats can do so after the 29th May 09 by contacting the ticket office on 0871 871 8781 option 2.
Born and bred in Gloucester, back row stalwart Andrew Hazell fully appreciates the importance of the Kingsholm crowd:
"The support we get from the Gloucester fans is second to none and the team thrive on it."
"A packed Kingsholm can make a real difference on matchday. The club are making season tickets as affordable as possible and we genuinely hope that our supporters will back us next season by purchasing them."
Speaking with the local media before the Gloucester team set off on the long trip north to Newcastle, Director of Rugby David Humphreys discussed his team selection and stated that Friday night's meeting will be a challenging one.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, Matt Kvesic was looking forward to the trip to Newcastle Falcons, and the captain is looking to lead from the front with plenty for the Cherry and Whites to work on.
Gloucester saw a 12-0 lead overturned by Harlequins on Friday night as the visitors ran out 22-15 winners. After the game, Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke about missed opportunities on the night.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, James Hudson explained his excitement for tonight's game with Harlequins and that he is backing the Cherry and White squad to impress during the next set of Aviva Premiership games.
Despite a dream start at Kingston Park, scoring a try after just 26 seconds, Gloucester couldn't capitalise against a dogged Newcastle Falcons side. Too many penalties were conceded and too many errors made as the Falcons prevailed 20-10.
There are three changes to Gloucester Rugby's starting line-up for Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Newcastle Falcons. Steve McColl will make his first Premiership start for the club.
