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 after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
