Phase 2 sells out in under an hour!

The 4,000 phase 2 semi final tickets that went on sale this morning at 6am sold out within the hour!

The fact that is was Easter Monday on this bank holiday weekend made no difference and the demand for tickets was incredibly high, so the 4,000 that were on offer to season ticket holders, at an amount of 2 per ticket holder went within the hour…

The postal ballot phase 3 applications for the United, Birmingham and Villa ticket stubs are now being processed and these will be allocated this week, with the final 6,500 tickets going on general sale in phase 4 on Thursday morning at 6am, again only available through Ticketmaster - but these will also sell out in no time.

Here are the details, as previously released on the Pompey Site for the phase 4 tickets, best of luck to everyone that is still desperately trying to get hold of them, if you truly deserve them I hope that the gods are shining down on you when you call through on Thursday…

Fourth Phase:
6,500 tickets will then go on general sale from 6am on Thursday, March 27 until midnight on Wednesday, April 2. There is a maximum of two tickets per person and you must be on the current PFC database to be eligible for these tickets.

Tickets will cost £55, £45, £35 and £25 for adults and £45, £35, £25 and £15 for concessions (16 and under, over 60 or students with a valid NUS card).

These tickets are only available through Ticketmaster on 0844 847 1898.

And who said we 'would have trouble selling our allocation', I never for one second had any doubts that we would do this, we could have sold out our allocation twice over, to be honest I reckon we could have sold out every seat in the stadium!

So my Dad, my brother, two uncles, an aunt and four cousins all have their tickets. And I still don't have mine. Wasn't successful this morning either. Grr!

mate thats a tough break, with all those others having got tickets is incredible that you havent! this could still happen in phase 3 - if you are in that - or phase 4 couldnt it, so dont lose hope.

Go t up 5.30am, ready to phone. At 6.04am after 25 engaged tones, I got an automated voice telling to press this & that button. Followed by 'I'm sorry there is no one available to take your call'. This happened again 15 mins later & 25 mins later I get the 'Sold Out' message. Yes as a season ticket holder I have mine but of course we all have other family & friends who arn't. A frustrating game of telephone chance!

As someone who has hardly missed a home game since 1970 and a long term season ticket holder I can't help but feel slightly agrieved that I have only managed to get one £25 ticket after hours spent telephoning Ticket Master. Especially as those who receive tickets in phase 3 are getting £45 tickets even though they may have only ever attended one home Pompey match ever! If we get to the final I hope Pompey will try harder to ensure that season ticket holders and the fans who follow them all over the country are the ones who get the best seats. Having got that off of my chest I realise that I am lucky to be going at all and I hope that all those who deserve to be there get to Wembley too. Good luck!

Good luck to everyone who has to enter the scramble for tickets on Thursday morning. I was very happy when I checked my account and saw that my phase 3 ticket application has been processed. Everyone who does have a ticket should be happy, and if you are a season ticket holder you also know you should be OK if we get to the final too.

I am flapping! Submitted a phase 3 application and am still desperately waiting to see th emoney disappear from my account! Must be the only time I am happy to see the bank balance go down!!!!!
wakey
hmmm, another wasted hour! Oh well, the price of success!

I agree with you, half pint, as a season ticket holder for many years, I have got one ticket. My son who also had a season ticket until he went to Derby Uni can't get one despite coming to games when he's on The Island. The fault, however is only mildly with the Club as Wem-ber-ly have taken over 20,000 tickets! What??!!! it's only a bleedin' semi-final - if we were at old trafford instead we would probably have had a slightly bigger allocation, and that in a smaller stadium! I got up at 5.15 on a bank holiday, on my birthday, rang continuously for one and a half hours with fek all response until I was told they were sold out. I just think (well I'm bound to, aren't I?) that 12 years of between 1 and 3 season tickets per year entitles me to something other than one poxy ticket. I'm sure there are loads of you reading this thinking 'the git should be grateful he's got one' well I deserve two. I wonder for how long and what time I'll have to start ringing for the final tickets? I'm starting NOW to avoid dissappointment - see, even my spellings gone to rat ****. Yours sincerely, My Angry's friend, Mr Naffed off.

Always going to be a nightmare with Ticketdisaster in charge. Looks like the TV for me as I'm off to Paris tomorrow to watch the England game and won't be around to make the call on Thursday. Could have had 2 prawn sandwich brigade tickets through a mate but didn't want to sell my soul to the devil! Good luck everyone
bluedr
Happy birthday Et_tu!!!
pompey4me
Happy birthday Et_tu sorry you have only one ticket I for one think you deserve more than that. The hanger ons have had a bad day though. I have heard groups talking about organising large numbers to go London for the week-end and so far they have NO tickets - hoorah!! Unfortunately big clubs need large allocations and we are becoming a large club again.
eastneydave
if you think its hard now wait until the final - it's an absolute nightmare with a reduced allocation!
merlin
well i was lucky i suppose today started ringing at 5.50 and finalised a booking exactly 1 hour later. So Dad has a £35 seat ive got £25 with my buddy Geoff. So we will be travelling up to Overton on the Friday and staty at dads along with Richie from newton Abbott who as yet has no tkt
plymouth graham
Great news Graham! Good luck to Richie in his search.
eastneydave
does anybody know when the phase 3 tickets are being posted and is everybody who sent their ticket stubs in going to get a ticket? If they don't come tomorrow we won't know whether we need to try for a ticket on Thursday.
ashfordblue
they were processed over the weekend mate, so 'should' be showing up on your bank account if they have gone through, i would expect that they 'should' arrive tomorrow as if processed at the weekend, even if 'only' posted today they should arrive tomorrow as special delivery is 'next day' unless they are only going out recorded delivery, which seems wrong?
tbh mate i dont know who will and who wont get them, there is no way that everyone who send there stubs will get them as there are 'apparently' only 3000 available, whereas at 1st i was told there would be 3000 available for those that went to old trafford alone, but with season tickets not included in this amount from old trafford i find it hard to believe that 'only' 800 season ticket holders would've gone to old trafford, with 3000 season ticket holders - originally i was given the impression that those non season ticket holders that did go to united were almost 100% certain to be issued a ticket, with the thought that it is now 3000 from those that went to united, birmingham and villa its not looking as likely as it was...
