FLY WITH POMPEY TO PORTUGAL

It's an historic moment in Pompey's history.

Vitoria SC v Pompey: the Blues' first ever match on foreign soil in a major European competition.

So why not join Pompey on their UEFA Cup adventure in Portugal by travelling with the club?
Thomson Sport are Pompey's official travel partner.

And in conjunction with the club they are offering official travel packages for Pompey`s UEFA Cup first round, second leg tie against Vitoria SC on Thursday, October 2.

The packages include match tickets, flights and transfers to and from the ground.

There are two packages - either travel straight home after the game or take your time enjoying an extra day in Portugal and fly back the next day:

Option One - Day Stop
Cost: £369 per person
Price includes:
- Flights between Gatwick and Porto
- All overseas transfers (on arrival, to the game and after the game)
- Match ticket
The outbound flight leaves Gatwick at 7.30am on Thursday, October 2 and arrives at 9.30am.
The return flight will be ready for fans after the game following transfer from the ground. The estimated departure time is 1.30am, provided there is no extra time.
Lucketts can provide transfers both ways between Fratton Park and Gatwick for an extra £20 per person.

Option Two - Overnight Stay (Stay over the night of the game)
Cost: £399 in a three-star hotel; £429 in a four-star hotel
Price includes:
- Flights between Bournemouth and Porto
- All overseas transfers (on arrival, to the game and after the game)
- Match ticket
- Hotel accommodation (bed and breakfast, twin share)
The outbound flight leaves Bournemouth at 7.30am on Thursday, October 2, arriving in Porto at 9.30am.
The return flight leaves Porto at 8.30pm on Friday, October 3.

All travel options will be staffed by Portsmouth FC stewards and Thomson Sport representatives.

By booking through the Official Travel Partner, you are completely ATOL protected.

ATOL protects you from losing your money or being stranded abroad. It does this by carrying out checks on the tour operators and travel organisers it licenses, and requiring a financial guarantee called a bond.

If a tour operator goes out of business, the CAA will make a refund to you, or if you're abroad, we'll arrange for you to finish your holiday and fly home, whereas, by booking independent packages, you are not ATOL protected, and should an airline go into liquidation or have a major delay or incident, you could be left stranded overseas and repatriation will be at your own expense.

A number of aircraft have been held by Thomson Sport for Pompey fans. If demand means extra aircraft are needed, the package prices for those travelling on an additional aircraft will be subject to change.

Therefore, it is recommended that supporters book early to ensure they travel on one of the pre-ordered aircraft to benefit from the above prices.

on the face of it you think what £400! but when you break it down and think exactly what it gives you its not that bad really is it, altho £400 is still alot of money for one game... ive been mulling it over all night, but as much as i desperately want to be at this game i think this time i must let me head rule my heart!
my main priority was to see the 1st ever european game at fratton, and depsite the 6pm kick off time this is something that i can do - so im content with that...

I would love to, but as I only get back from my Holiday on the 29th I think it will be a little rude and expensive to go straight back off again. lol Bring on the group stages!

A pretty good deal really. Question is, do I go for this and break the bank for this game or do I wait for us to qualify for the group stages in the hope an away trip to a European giant?

At least it looks as if Harry will be leading us out, He likes having a chairman who lets him manage.

for those that live further away from portsmouth, theres a £98 flight bristol-porto on thurs morn, with a £78 return flight from porto - stansted the next morn. £176, not bad, but you have to stay somewhere overnight, and you have to organise travel from porto to guimaraes.

£400 + some spending is a lot for a 24 hour experience. Some thinking to be done for all of us. Just hope for those who book, we arn't mullered in the home leg.

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
