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*)
* Calls to this number will cost 10 pence per minute from BT landlines, calls from other networks and mobiles may vary.
Henry Purdy, a first half replacement for Charlie Sharples, was amongst the try scorers in the 64-19 victory over Aviron Bayonnais on Saturday evening and told GRTV that it was a professional performance, one the team are happy with.
Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
After the recent European exploits, it's more cup action for Gloucester this weekend, but it's of a domestic variety as the Cherry and Whites travel to Bath on Friday evening to resume their Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign.
