Warriors vs Gloucester now a sell out

Worcester Warriors have confirmed that the Guinness Premiership derby day clash with Gloucester Rugby at Sixways Stadium on Saturday, March 29 (kick-off 3pm) is now sold out.


Warriors have been inundated with ticket requests ahead of the visit of their big local rivals and now a capacity crowd of 10,197 is guaranteed for a mouth-watering top-flight clash.


The clash will be the fourth sell-out Guinness Premiership clash of the campaign at Warriors and Director of Rugby Mike Ruddock paid tribute to the army of fans who will again create an electric atmosphere at Sixways Stadium.


“It is great news to hear that the derby match against Gloucester has already sold out,” said Ruddock. “Our fans have been absolutely fantastic all season and it’s great to see how much this fixture means to them.


“I have been used to lots of derbies in the past in a number of different environments but they don’t come any bigger than Warriors against Gloucester, particularly at Sixways Stadium.


“We are now unbeaten in three matches and with Gloucester coming to us on the back of some good results it makes for a highly charged and exciting contest between two sides in good form.”


General Manager Charlie Little said the club was delighted with the sell out as part of a big double header as Warriors also prepare to welcome Montpellier in the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals just a week later (Saturday, April 5).


“It is a tribute to both sets of fans that the Gloucester game has sold out so early and we look forward to a very special derby day atmosphere at Sixways Stadium,” he said.

 

“There is a common misconception that all our home games are sell outs when we often do have tickets available right up to the big day. But on this occasion we are putting the ‘sold out’ boards up early for the local derby.”
