Just two weeks left for Season ticket holders to secure seats!
15 May 2009 11:55
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 to the local media this week, back row flanker Jacob Rowan said that he is excited for the challenge at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday, and added that the players know the responsibility is theirs to deliver against the league leaders.
Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
Gloucester battled bravely against Wasps on Sunday, but it was a case of taking chances at the Ricoh Arena. Gloucester didn't make the most of theirs while Wasps did, and that proved to be the difference.
Gloucester were competitive for long periods at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday afternoon, but were left to rue a host of missed scoring opportunities throughout as Wasps hit back to earn a 35-22 Aviva Premiership win.
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
