Exeter Chiefs chairman Tony Rowe OBE says it's testament to the 'fantastic backing' the club receive from its loyal supporters that season ticket sales have risen again ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Ahead of what will be the Devon club's ninth year in the Gallagher Premiership, the Chiefs have recorded a 11% increase in season ticket sales compared to last season.
As well as the excitement of the upcoming top-flight season, plus another hugely impressive season last term - one which included reaching a third successive Premiership Final and also capturing the Anglo-Welsh Cup - it has helped take the number of season tickets sold past the 5,000 mark.
Whilst a great number of existing season ticket holders took up the option to renew their spots at an early stage, the club has also seen an increase in many first-time holders taking up the option of watching Rob Baxter's side in action in the Premiership, Heineken Champions Cup and Premiership Rugby Cup.
Mr Rowe said: "I continue to be amazed by the support of our fans. The amount of season tickets already sold – including many first time holders – is testament to the fantastic backing our fans continue to give the club.
"Each year our average home attendance continues to rise - last year it was over 11,000 - and again there is a real feel-good factor around the club as we head into the new campaign.
"With sell-outs at Sandy Park becoming more and more commonplace at Sandy Park, I’m sure Chiefs' fans will appreciate that holding on to their season ticket, or for those purchasing a new one, this is the only way of guaranteeing their spot for all of our home games."
Season Tickets for the new season are still available to purchase with the options of payments being spread across seven months through the club's official website.
