Gloucester Rugby are excited to welcome back supporters for Monday night lights pilot match.
Gloucester Rugby are delighted to be confirmed as the host club selected by the Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to act as the second pilot for Rugby Union, with supporters able to attend the match between Gloucester Rugby and Harlequins on Monday 14th September 2020.
Following a successful trial at The Stoop for Harlequins v Bath last weekend, the event at Kingsholm Stadium, will be utilised to further demonstrate the strict delivery of social distancing measures to ensure crowd safety as rugby returns with supporters in the stands once more.
Lance Bradley, Chief Executive Officer, was naturally thrilled be Rugby Union’s second stadium selected for a government trial.
“We’re absolutely delighted to have been selected to host a pilot event to let fans back into Kingsholm Stadium on Monday. We believe that Gloucester Rugby fans are the most passionate in the country, and I know they’re desperate to watch our Club play live again. It should be a great advert not only for Gloucester Rugby, but for Premiership Rugby as a whole.”
The event will take place at the stadium with a reduced capacity crowd, with priority being given to those 1873 Club Members and Club Members who so kindly donated their season ticket money towards their new training facility.
Should those supporters not take up the available allocation of tickets then other 1873 Club Members and Club Members will be given the opportunity to apply for tickets. It is not anticipated that any tickets will be available for general sale. More information on how to apply for tickets, will be made available shortly.
