With tickets sales now up to 24,000, NEC Harlequins Heineken Cup pool four game against Munster at Twickenham on Saturday 15th January, kick-off 1.00pm, will enter the record books for attracting the biggest attendance to a pool match in the tournaments history.
The record currently stands at 23,463, which was set last season when Leinster played host to Cardiff at Lansdowne Road.
"This is a fantastic achievement and one the club can be very proud of," said Tony Copsey, NEC Harlequins Managing Director. "Our return to our former home has clearly captured the imagination amongst Quins supporters. A lot of our Season Ticket holders and Community groups are taking the opportunity to bring along friends and family for what I'm sure will be a great occasion."
"Whilst there will be a large contingent of Munster fans at Twickenham, I'm delighted that they will be significantly out numbered by supporters in the famous multi-coloured shirt."
There is still time to purchase tickets for this game, which can be done by calling Ticketmaster on 0870 902 0000 or online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Alternatively, tickets will be available at the ground on the day.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
