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.
