Ahead of Saturday afternoon's home fixture against Sale Sharks (Kingsholm, kick off 3pm), the new replica away shirt will be on sale in the club shop.
The shirt has already been worn by the first team in the JP Morgan 7s, World Club 7s and in the preseason friendlies against Munster and Plymouth Albion.
The brand new design, which features pink and blue hoops, already seems to be a winner based on supporter feedback.
There will be limited numbers available, and they will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Adult shirts cost £50 (sizes Small to XXXL) and children's shirts cost £35 (sizes Small Boy to Youth).
The brand new home replica shirt will be on general sale next week.
Speaking with the local media before the Gloucester team set off on the long trip north to Newcastle, Director of Rugby David Humphreys discussed his team selection and stated that Friday night's meeting will be a challenging one.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, Matt Kvesic was looking forward to the trip to Newcastle Falcons, and the captain is looking to lead from the front with plenty for the Cherry and Whites to work on.
Gloucester saw a 12-0 lead overturned by Harlequins on Friday night as the visitors ran out 22-15 winners. After the game, Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke about missed opportunities on the night.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, James Hudson explained his excitement for tonight's game with Harlequins and that he is backing the Cherry and White squad to impress during the next set of Aviva Premiership games.
Despite a dream start at Kingston Park, scoring a try after just 26 seconds, Gloucester couldn't capitalise against a dogged Newcastle Falcons side. Too many penalties were conceded and too many errors made as the Falcons prevailed 20-10.
There are three changes to Gloucester Rugby's starting line-up for Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Newcastle Falcons. Steve McColl will make his first Premiership start for the club.
