The Gloucester Rugby ticket office reports that, after a brisk week of business, there are currently limited seats available for Gloucester Rugby's historic encounter against Australia on Tuesday November 3rd (kick off 7:45pm).
Overall ticket sales for the game have now passed the 7,500 mark but, with 2009-10 Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders having their seats reserved until 3:30pm this coming Friday, seats for non season ticket holders are currently limited.
Season ticket holders are guaranteed their seats if they purchase before 3:30pm on Friday but, from 4:30pm, any unsold seats will go on general release via the internet.
Gloucester Rugby's Head of Sales and Marketing, Pete Grzonka, said today:
"It's a cliche but the phone has hardly stopped ringing in the ticket office over the past week. We have a good number of terrace tickets available but seats are at a premium."
"However, once the deadline for season ticket holders to purchase their seats passes on Friday, we're anticipating a surge of sales as more seats become available."
"We already have a number of people on standby to purchase seats once they're available so our advice is to purchase as quickly as possible once we release unsold seats on Friday afternoon."
Tickets for the big game at Kingsholm are available from the club ticket office and by phone (0871 871 8781 option 2*)

Speaking straight after the game, skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV that losing at home to Bath, in front of a tremendous home support, was desperately disappointing and that the whole team were hurting in the dressing room.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
