The much anticipated semi final meeting with West Brom has had its details confirmed, well as far as when it will take place.
We will be playing on Saturday 5th April, with a 12.15pm kick off time. We already knew that we had 33,000 tickets and details of how to get hold of these are to be announced on the Pompey Site today.
Clearly season ticket holders and club members get priority, but the near on sell out at Fratton Park last night 'might' help some others, as they seek to jump on the bandwagon - I am not saying everyone is wanting to do this of course, but it would be interesting to know how full it would have been last night if 'redeeming' your ticket for that game, and the one on Saturday with Villa might not have given you a 'better chance' of semi final tickets as a result…
All along I have said that I hope those that truly deserve tickets get tickets, and also hope that those that then do get tickets really do want them - if I notice them for sell on t'internet I will be livid, and will make sure that I make the club aware of this - what they would do about it I do not know…
Speaking of tickets, there will be an increase in ticket prices for season tickets next season. Peter Storrie told The News: 'we have held prices for the last three years but obviously we have to look at it realistically and cannot hold that forever, unfortunately.
'The level of the squad we have currently got on the wage role is increasing and we have kept it as low as we possibly can.
'These increases average about five per cent.
'For the first time in three years this has happened so we haven't done too bad.
'I have seen what some of the other clubs are doing and they have started to push prices more than us'.
These increases do not seem as bad as I had been led to believe they would be, so I am not that unhappy to be honest.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
