Season ticket holders gain Wembley priority

Season tickets holders for the 2008/09 season will once again have priority when it comes to getting tickets for our next visit to Wembley - the community shield against Manyoo in August.

These are the details, as confirmed on the Pompey Site...



Pompey season ticket holders will get priority for Community Shield tickets.

The Blues face Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday, August 10, and season ticket holders will get the first chance to buy seats.

Further ticket information about the game between the FA Cup winners and Premier League champions is not expected until next month, following a meeting between the clubs, Wembley and the FA.

The game will be Pompey's third at Wembley in 128 days following wins over West Brom in the FA Cup semi-final and Cardiff in the FA Cup final.

Pompey have around 1,800 season tickets left for 2008/9, which are on general sale for the rest of this week.

More than 14,000 season tickets have already been sold, an increase on 2008/9, when Pompey's eighth-placed finish was their best in the Premier League.

There are no season tickets available in the Milton end, while the only seats on sale in the Family Enclosure and C section of the south stand are restricted view.

But seats are available in all other parts of Fratton Park.

Although they can be purchased over the phone, supporters are strongly recommended to buy their season tickets in person from the club's ticket office in Anson Road.

Supporters who come to the ticket office between 9.30am and 4.30pm will have the option of being shown their chosen seat in the ground.

Pompey ticket office manager Elaine Giles said: "We've already sold more season tickets than last season, which is excellent.

"We don't have any detailed ticket information at all for the Community Shield against Manchester United on August 10.

"But what I can say is that anyone with a season ticket for 2008/9 will get priority when it comes to tickets for that game."

The club is pleased to inform supporters that the successful five-month, interest-free scheme to spread the cost of a season ticket will remain available.

Supporters pay a reservation fee of 20 and then the rest of the cost of the season ticket in five equal payments.

When coming to buy their season tickets, fans should complete a finance application form, available from the ticket office.

More than 1,800 fans have already taken advantage of finance schemes, run by PFC Financial Services, to help pay for their 2008/9 season tickets.

Perry Scott, General Manager of PFC Financial Services, said: "The feedback received has been particularly welcome as fans have told us these schemes have been a real help in these times of increased living costs."

Season tickets sales will be suspended after Friday while the club's ticket system is updated. They are expected to go back on sale later this month.

Supporters are reminded that the ticket office is shut at weekends during the close season.
Season ticket prices:

South A/D; North E/G: Adult 705; Senior/Young Person 500; Junior 380.
South B/C; North F: Adult 770; Senior/Young Person 550; Junior 415.
Family Enclosure: Adult 600; Senior/Young Person 320; Junior 190.
North Lower: Adult 705, Senior/Young Person 500; Junior 380.
West Stand: Adult 705, Senior/Young Person 500; Junior 380.

And so they should but with an anticipated allocation of that for the semi final. 38-40,000, there should be plenty to go round. Never tire of going to Wembley to see Pompey, you just don't know when it will happen again. Let's hope it ain't another 69 years!
I think that is fair enough - tickets given to those who are loyal enough to sign up again for season tickets. I will be interested to see where the others go as the membership may not be out yet, and if it is there might be a much bigger sign up for it.
Common sense really
This is all about selling the last few season tickets. STHs will always have priority for tickets so why push it? It would suit the club if all Season are sold making life easy in the ticket office with just a handful of Milton End tickets available.
Of course season tickets should have priority. And agreed, should be plenty to go around anyway. Actually really can't make this one. I cancelled a cheap holiday for the final, but now have expensive uncancellable plane tickets booked for a friend's wedding in Indonesia when the charity shield is on. Otherwise I would go, but this time I'm going to have to miss it. Still English football is big in Asia, hope to catch it on TV.
I hope there will still be some home tickets available next season for non-season ticket holders! Gulp!
I hope so to Tracy, although I think it may prove very difficult to get some. I will set my eyes on the games that people 'don't want to go to' as they are lower division teams.
As I live in H'smith and unable to get time off worrk, I sent my old mum over the road to Fratton Park today to get my season ticket - the first one I've had since moving to London for uni. Wish I knew how much my 1983 season ticket actually cost. Anyway, Mum had great time with "nice young man" testing out seats for me and assures me that it is a "nice seat". Remains to be seen. But the total bummer is that I'm going to be away for the Charity shield or whatever it's called now. Talk about bad luck. However, my old dad who now lives in Malta, is going to be staying in my flat for that week so I can get him a ticket. Having watched Pompey all through the 1970s and 1980s, I reckon he deserves it.
Dave exactly what I was thinking,& next they it will be for members so expect membership to go on sale before the wembley tickets, but it will be better than what they did for the semi with the Villa & Birmingham stubs that was dreadful.
How many tickets have you got for the Charity shield? I bet its a lot more than the poor amount that gets allocated for the Fa cup final!
