Despite RaboDirect PRO12 Loss, Glasgow Warriors See Increase In Season Ticket Sales
Published May 24, 2013
Scottish rugby team Glasgow Warriors' narrow loss in the RaboDirect PRO12 semifinals for the third time in four years "has only whet the appetite of supporters," it appears, with the club predicting a record number of season ticket sales for '13-14, according to David Ferguson of the SCOTSMAN. The Warriors "revealed that more than 1,200 supporters have already bought tickets for next season," with more than 25% going to new season ticket holders. Having sold a little more than 1,500 season books last season, Glasgow is now "hopeful of beating that and surpassing Edinburgh's 2,000 record before the new term kicks off in August." The club is working hard to sign up more supporters too, with open days on Thursday (12-7:30pm) and on June 1 (11:30am-2:30pm), "where fans can purchase season tickets in person and get a tour of the stadium." The British & Irish Lions game against the Barbarians "will also be shown live at Scotstoun" on June 1 (kick-off 12:30pm) (SCOTSMAN, 5/23).
