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...
pompeyrug
Being 'cautious', I'd rather watch the matches that we are more likely to get something from. So good news for me.
wellyit
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!!!!
jim4pompey
This makes sense all the way round, Me and Ms P would have gone last week if that was the case......
pentonpompey
So cash back for those who paid full price on a season ticket then, no little freebie in the post. yawnnnnn.
storagematt
Good news for me! I should be able to get to more games now. Well done Pompey, you thought of the fans here!
sneakay
Yeah S*h*i*t on the season ticket holder again PS didnt consult me!
Super Bock 1898
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.
pentonpompey
Excellent news.
NinjaTim
great news for me ...I m going to look at the fixture right now and plan my trips..anyt devon boys wanting a lift give me a call
plymouth graham
I agree with Bock...Storrie also left me off his list of ST holders he allegedly spoke to. However, if it fills the place then I suppose I can't be too grumbly as long as it gets the team winning again.
hammersmithblue
Was against this when mentioned on the Quay, purely because the Season Ticket holder who shows his commitment trusting the club to put on a 600 show each year, is taken for a mug (please bear in mind, I appreciate some can't stump up that amount of money, etc.). BUT, this year is a special cause! We need that support, and not the silent bunch that sit in front of me!! Lets get the Park rocking again and hopefully, PS and the good Dr (dodgy doctorate from Portsmouth Poly) will reward Season Ticket holders by reducing a few mouth watering cup ties to Season Ticket holders only. Good move. PUP
BarneyArmy
Thats a good idea Barney; it would show willing to the ST holders who as you say stump up regardless.
pentonpompey
Free Cup ties for ST holders would be an even better idea! I think we will see a reduction in ST prices next season as a thank you.
eastneydave
I agree we need to fill the ground but they need to balance it. It just seems to me that the more loyal you are the more they think they can shaft you. Ive emailed PS various times b4 with no reply about various gripes inc how my mate who doesnt go at all got a prime ticket for the semifinal, while I had no choice but the cheap seats (that does seem quite petty now in the present climate, but just an example!). I do admit he does have the best interests of the club at heart but definately has to work on the clubs PR.
Super Bock 1898
well done Pompey,i might be able to get to a few more games this season. shame it will have to be in the milton end.
PompeyFcMad
Cup games can only be reduced if the oposition agree to it, as they take a proportion of the gate receipts.
pros7
to a degree i do agree, as once again as always i am left thinking 'who are these supporters groups and season ticket holders consulted', as once again i was not one of these and heard nothing on this until it was done - i seem to get the impression that i know who these are, and where they drink but think we need a broader spectrum of those being 'consulted' in the future...
as it is, i cannot see the harm in doing this in the milton end, those seats would stand empty but for this, how does this help anyone? to be fair the north upper section is only a small section, but again one that would be dormant otherwise.
i am sure that us season ticket holders will see a 'bonus' during the season and also feel sure tickets will be reduced next season anyway - they need to be!
pompeyrug
that is very true pros7... hence why alot of these are not 'kids for a quid' and so on.
pompeyrug
How many season ticket holders are there in the Milton End? Not many I should think. Who would go there if they could get tickets for somewhere else? These seats would probably otherwise be empty, especially for the games they are proposing. It also gets rid of the idea of coupling matches. Who would buy tickets for two games but for whatever reason couldn't go to one of them? This solves the problem of filling the ground without bankrupting the fans. We bought season tickets this year so we could sit where we wanted and didn't have to rely on chance. You pay a premium for that.
Lemmi
Kind of gives the lie to the fans assertion we need a 30,000 plus stadium when we can't guarantee to fill a 20,000 seater doesn't it. This is not what the club will want to be doing financially bums on seats comes with winning; they no doubt will be hoping to not have to extend the offer which I will be taking up!
russellm
A sensible move by the club. Even though 17,000 at 30 is more money than 21,000 at 20, it makes sense to create some positivity, and the shortfall in cash it induces will at least in part be made up for by extra shirt sales, programmes, etc. etc. I'm a ST holder and I hate seeing rafts of empty blue seats at each home game.
Pompeytim
I wasn't consulted either, but because I bought my ST in the early bird deal my Fratton End ticket costs about 30 a match. This scheme is not making Fratton end tickets available for 30. I also have my seat guaranteed and priority on ticketing. I think its a good move - get bums on seats, better attendance figures which in turn increases secondary spend in the stadium and sponsorship. And hopefully starts to pull more people in to football on a more regular basis. H&W have done exactly the same with freebie season tickets with a Pompey membership.
