Pompey reduce ticket prices for kids

Pompey reduce ticket prices for kids

It's an expensive business football, taking kids even more so but prices at Fratton have been reduced for next season.

This is what the Pompey Site had to say on the matter...

==========

TICKETS SLASHED FOR KIDS

Pompey have slashed Premier League matchday prices for children in parts of Fratton Park next season.

A ticket in the Family Section for anyone aged 16 or under is now just £10, compared to £12 last season - 17 percent cheaper.

And in the Milton end the price has dropped from £18 to £15 for juniors, also a 17 percent drop.

Prices for juniors in all other areas of Fratton Park have been held at last season's prices. A junior ticket in the West Stand (Fratton end) is £22, for instance.

Adult matchday tickets have gone up by £1 - equivalent to a rise of between 2.4 percent and 3.1 percent.

Matchday tickets for seniors - anyone aged 60 or over - have also risen by £1, an increase of between 3.5 percent and 5.3 percent.

Ticket office manager Elaine Giles said: "It's very important that we attract young fans to Fratton Park - they are our next generation of supporters. We also appreciate rising living costs.

"That's why we've either held prices for juniors or cut them, which gives youngsters a better chance of seeing their heroes in action."

Fratton Park Premier League matchday ticket prices 2008/9:

South Upper Wing A & D: Adult £38; Senior £28; Junior £22
South Upper Centre C: Adult £42; Senior £30; Junior £22

Let's hope they do specials for the odd "unattractive game" as well

My 11 year olds season ticket turned up today, £380 for a nipper, don't make it easy to bring the next wave of fans through do they?

Scary stuff. When I was going in the mid-late 70s we were paying 60-80p a game. Ok life has changed, footie has changed (not always for the better) but I was hooked. 30 years later & I'm still going. The limitations of the capacity don't help though the goodwill gesture does. If & when we got a 35-40,000 new stadia. That is the time to fill it with cut price season tickets for everybody.

Dont think that will happen matt. More seats wont (imo) = cheaper seats. Knowing Pompey they will cash in and tickets will increase. Paultsmouth, we sit in the family scn for that reason. Kids tickets are about £180. I dont really want to sit there, but could not afford anywhere else.

Good move by Pompey, although more kids means more higher pitched screaming!

On this day in history...13th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 13th February.

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.
