POMPEY CUT TICKET PRICES

Pompey have slashed matchday ticket prices for nearly half of their Premier League games at Fratton Park this season.

Adult tickets in the Apollo Stand (Milton end) are just £20 for eight top-flight matches, with accompanied children paying just £5 and seniors £15.

Seats in blocks E & G of the Upper North Stand are £30 for adults, £15 for accompanied children and £22 for seniors.

The price cuts apply to the home games against Wigan, Burnley, Birmingham, Sunderland, Stoke, Hull, Blackburn and Wolves.

Blues chief executive offer Peter Storrie said: "We want to see Fratton Park full for every match, to create the sort of atmosphere that makes the stadium a fortress.

"Having spoken to season ticket holders and supporters groups, they're in full agreement and behind our plans to slash prices.

"With that in mind we've dropped prices in the Milton end and parts of the north stand where there are spaces for no fewer than eight games."

Tickets in the Apollo Stand are normally £34 for adults, £25 for seniors and £14 for juniors.

Seats in blocks E & G of the Upper North Stand are normally £38 for adults, £27 for seniors and £20 for juniors.

Under the changes the coupling of games has been scrapped.

Matchday ticket prices for Wigan (Oct 31), Burnley (Dec 5), Birmingham (Jan 16), Sunderland (Feb 9), Stoke (Feb 20), Hull (Mar 20), Blackburn (Apr 3), Wolves (May 1):

Apollo End:
Adult £20
Accompanied children (maximum of two) £5 each
Seniors £15
Unaccompanied children £10

North Stand Upper E & G Blocks (wings):
Adult £30
Accompanied children (maximum of two) £15 each
Seniors £22
Unaccompanied children £20

it makes sense, the milton and north upper - sections of this reduced - are notorious for not selling out, £20 for a premier league game, even against less 'desirable' opponents cannot be knocked!
the way i see it, if you are a pompey fan it doesnt matter who we play, if you will turn your nose up at a ticket in the milton for £20, or £30 in north upper, then there is something wrong...

Being 'cautious', I'd rather watch the matches that we are more likely to get something from. So good news for me.

to be honest it's good business for pompey to sell out these games. we need the crowd right behind us and these are the "must win" games of the season for us. Sell outs will give us every advantage... we should have sold the away section for £60 a head!!!!

The conundrum for the Club is; How do they put bums on seats, which in turn increases revenue and cranks up the volume? I imagine they knew before they reduced the prices that there would be a disgruntled share of the Season ticket holders. Problem is Fratton is not selling out for many different reasons. How do they get people in? Reduce sections in price to tempt ex ST holders Ex Members, casuals and Kids. Regardless; most ST holders re-new year in year out, it's all the rest that need a prompt and tempting. Money is a huge issue with millions of family's around the Country right now, and family's prioritise just as with everything else. Lets be fair if two tickets are going to set you back nearly £80, add travel and refreshments, and that is an expensive day. Like I say many will chose other things to do with their hard earned money, just the same as season ticket holders chose to part with hundreds every season. Again Non ST holders do other things with their weekends for a million different reasons. ST holders choose to give up their weekends for the chance to see Pompey at every home game. The problem for the club is there are not enough ST holders to not have to do this, and in that lies the problem for all.

Northampton (h) - Securing home advantage?

Some could view this as a 'dead rubber!' It isn't as Champions Northampton will want to end on a high and Pompey will want 'an advantage' against Plymouth in the play-offs. Right?

Pompey MotM at Hartlepool

Pompey went into the penultimate game with a slim chance of a top 3 finish. A 2-0 win at Hartlepool saw the Blues do what we needed but wins for others ended those chances.

An emergency loan arrival of a goalie has been ruled out by the Football League but this doesn't mean a free agent cannot be signed by Pompey should a suitable option be found?
