Ticket Office To Move

From Friday, December 24 Pompey's ticket office is moving to Frogmore Road.

As a result, there will be limited ticket office services between December 24 2010 until Wednesday, January 5 2011.

Because of this, we strongly advise our fans to read and use the following advice regarding purchasing tickets for our home matches against Millwall on Boxing Day and Hull on January 3.

Millwall (December 26, kick-off 1pm)
With only 1,000 seats left in North Stand Upper, North Stand Lower and 'D' section of the South Stand, the ticket office will only be open for ticket collections on the day of the match.

Boxing Day ticket office opening hours: 10am to 1pm. Collections only.

From 9am on December 24, anyone wanting to buy a ticket for this match can only do so by going online at or by calling 0844 847 1898.

Hull (January 3, kick 3pm)
The new ticket office in Frogmore Road will only be open on the following days ahead of the match against Hull on January 3:

December 29: 9am-5pm
December 30: 9am-5pm
January 3: 10am-kick-off

There will only be three ticket windows available during this period, so supporters are strongly advised to use the 'Print at Home' ticket service on our e-ticket website ( or by purchasing tickets by phone at 0844 847 1898.

Due to the limited number of windows, fans are urged not to wait until the day to purchase their tickets. Those who do should arrive early as queues will be considerable.

Only tickets for the Hull game will be available to purchase on January 3.

On non-match days, anyone wishing to purchase a ticket from the Frogmore Road ticket office should park in the main car park behind the Fratton End.

There is a walkway in the southern corner of the car park leading to Frogmore Road.

Please note, parking in Frogmore Road is very restricted.

    Blues fans will be seated in the east and north-east stands of the ground for the tie, fans will also be sat in just about every pub there and in Pompey. Is the ticket office going back where it was before they moved it?

    Oh poo, I wanted to go to this game - we were planning to go with Gandor - but we haven't been to 3 away games. Still its such a poxy little number of tickets I spose they have to restrict it somehow. Mind you, I've seen pictures of the away stand at the Withdean and its so far back from the pitch, with the running track in the way, that tbh I'll probably get a better view of the game by listening on the radio!!
