Fundraising Friendly: Tickets On Sale

Tickets for Pompey's fundraising friendly against Hermann Hreidarsson's IBV side are now on general sale.

The match - which is being organised in conjunction with the Pompey Supporters' Trust - will take place at Fratton Park on Tuesday, April 16 (7.45pm kick-off).

Seats are priced £10 for adults, £5 for seniors (60+) and young persons (17-22) and just £1 for juniors (under 17).

They can be bought online here or from the Frogmore Road ticket office.

Supporters can also purchase tickets from the booths behind the Fratton End between 9.30am and 1pm this Saturday.

Please note that only the Fratton End and South Stand will be open for this match.

All proceeds from the game will go towards the PST's community stake in the club.

Hreidarsson, 38, who made 123 appearances for the Blues, is paying the expenses to bring his side to Pompey as part of an eight-day tour of England ahead of the new Icelandic Premier League season.

It is a gesture that has been welcomed by PST chairman Ashley Brown.

He said: "We were delighted when Hermann approached us with this idea. This is fantastic opportunity for fans to come and say farewell to a terrific club servant, but more importantly contribute to the biggest community share yet.

"Every penny will be reinvested in the club as part of the PST's shareholding, so this means any fan can have their stake in Pompey simply by buying a ticket for the match."

Hreidarsson, who has recently been in England to complete a coaching course, is looking forward to the game.

He said: "It is a great opportunity for my players to play at a legendary ground and all the money will be going to a great cause.

"My time at Pompey was a rollercoaster ride, with some terrific highs like winning the FA Cup in my first season and also some difficult times, which saw some good people lose their jobs.

"All the time, though, the Pompey fans were different class and I didn't feel I got the chance to say goodbye to them properly after I was loaned to Coventry in 2012."

Former Iceland international Hreidarsson also pledged to take part in the match for the side he started his career at.

He said: "I will be registered as a player for IBV for the new season, which starts in May, to cover for suspensions and injuries, so I will be playing for sure.

"I'm really looking forward to it. I now have a manager who appreciates my full potential as a striker!"


You would think that these tickets will sell well, right?

With every penny raised from this going towards the takeover bid its well worth buying a ticket for this game.
