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."
As Gloucester prepare for their 39th game of the season, against Bordeaux-Begles at Sixways on Sunday, David Humphreys told the local media that this week has been all about getting the players mentally and physically ready after a tough game against Connacht last Sunday.
Speaking to GRTV after the 40-32 victory over Connacht on Sunday, skipper Billy Twelvetrees explained that Gloucester had had to learn to be patient and cut out the errors to earn the win and progress to next weekend's final play-off against Bordeaux-Begles.
Jonny May's superb late score capped a thrilling 40-32 European play-off win over Connacht on Sunday. The winger spoke afterwards of his team's character and spirit as he looked ahead to one more week of rugby.
Speaking to GRTV this afternoon, Director of Rugby David Humphreys hailed the 'never say die' attitude of the team, after despite not being at their best, fighting back to take a 40-32 win after extra time over Connacht.
Jonny May continues on the wing on Sunday as Connacht come to town, and the England wing explains to the local media this week that he is delighted with his form and is looking forward to taking on Pat Lam's men.
Following the recent announcement that XBlades were to become the club's new kit and leisurewear partner, Gloucester Rugby can today (Tuesday 30 June) confirm the opening of a new retail unit, based at Gloucester Quays Outlet Centre, as well as the launch of a brand new online shop.
