Gloucester Rugby fans passing through Kingsholm may be scratching their heads as they look at the club’s stadium.
Kingsholm Stadium, located in Kingsholm Road, is missing a vital piece of signage.
The name ‘Kingsholm’ is usually adorned in the cherry motif across the white background of the building, matching the club colours.
But it was not there today.
A spokesman for the club said the sign was taken down for maintenance during the off-season and that it was likely the first time it had happened since the grandstand was built 13 years ago.
Kingsholm Stadium, affectionately nicknamed ‘Castle Grim’ after the estate where it was built, has been there since 1891.
The latest grandstand was built in 2007 and that’s when the sign was put up on the side of the building.
The club’s spokesman went on to say the sign will most likely be back up tomorrow (October 22) while the fixings are replaced and “sharpened up”.
The stadium has a capacity of 16,115, although COVID-19 regulations have forced sports clubs all around the country to have to close their doors to the fans.
The 2007 grandstand makes up for 7,500 of the overall capacity.
