Wasps' Coventry-born fly-half Andy Goode tells BBC Midlands Today the Ricoh Arena will be "the best rugby ground in the Premiership" ahead of their first match at the stadium on Sunday.
An attendance of at least 26,000 is expected for the game against London Irish and Wasps director of rugby Dai Young described the game as "hugely important" as his side bid for a top-six finish.
Chief executive Nick Eastwood admitted the club have sold thousands more tickets than they expected for the match.
