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...



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
South Upper Centre B: Sold Out

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

Oh great! I spend all my week at school teaching the little sods only to spend my saturday surrounded by screaming kids...only joking, of course! Pompey was my entire life when I was a nipper and this is good news for little diddy blues

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!
