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."
