The 'Sold-Out' signs have already gone up at Kingsholm and Le Stadium Municipal in Toulouse and all the indications are that Vicarage Road and the Madejski Stadium will also be packed to the rafters for the Heineken Cup quarter-finals.
Gloucester's second packed house of their Euro campaign will take to 57,850 the total number of fans who have passed through the turnstiles for Heineken Cup games at Kingsholm this season.
By taking a second game to Le Stadium, three-times winners Toulouse will become the first club in the history of the tournament to top the 100,000 ticket sales for their four home matches this season - 105,196.
The previous record was held by Leinster, who attracted 84,200 fans to their three Pool matches and home quarter-final at Lansdowne Road in 2004/05. Toulouse's previous highest tally was 78,784 in 2003/04. Other four match highs include Leicester Tigers, 67,863, and Biarritz Olympique, 53,332.
Saracens have already surpassed their Heineken Cup record gate of 11,258 against Ulster, while London Irish are certain to break their best in the tournament of 14,675, also against Ulster.
The Ospreys will be backed by a travelling army of around 5,000 fans at Vicarage Road having already sold more than 4,000 of their 4,500 allocation, while Cardiff Blues will be airlifting 1,100 fans to Toulouse. Perpignan will also have close to 1,000 fans following them to the Madejski.
A tournament record 721,240 fans watched the 72 Pool matches - topping last season's mark by almost 5,000. And the average of over 10,000 for every Pool match in the 13th year of the Heineken Cup means it all adds up to more than 6,000,000 fans having watched Pool stage matches and 8,153,430 going through the turnstiles for all tournament games.
The total capacity for the quarter-finals is 93,509 and there are only 12,500 tickets left. The majority of those are at the Madejski, where London Irish enjoyed a Guinness Premiership record gate of 23,700 on Sunday for their clash with the reigning Heineken Cup holders, London Wasps.
Promotion for their first Heineken Cup quarter-final will begin in earnest this week, although more than half the ground has already been sold before the big push.
Public ticket sales for the Cardiff 2008 Heineken Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, 24 May reached ERC's 50,000 target in mid-February. The remaining tickets will be distributed between the two finalists with club members getting the first option to buy them.
The current sales figures for the quarter-finals are:
London Irish v Perpignan - Madejski Stadium (23,700) 12,500
Gloucester Rugby v Munster - Kingsholm (16,500) Sold Out
Saracens v Ospreys - Vicarage Road (18,300) 17,000
Toulouse v Cardiff Blues - Le Stadium (35,009) Sold Out
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
