Cardiff Blues are hoping to break their Heineken Cup attendance record this weekend when they host Gloucester at the Millennium Stadium.
Blues chief executive Rob Norster announced that more than 14,000 tickets had been snapped up by the beginning of this week - way in excess of the number at the same time ahead of their 2006/07 clash with Leicester Tigers at the same venue.
"Sales really picked up after our opening win over Calvisano last weekend and we are on course for another good gate at the Millennium Stadium," said Norster.
"We had 26,645 at the game against the Tigers and we hope to be there or beyond on Sunday. The Millennium Stadium is a great facility and the there is a great game in prospect.
"This is the third game we have taken to the international venue in recent years and the fans obviously enjoy the occasions. With a large contingent expected to make the journey from Gloucester, it promises to be another great Heineken Cup event."
