Info sent to me regarding Blackburn

Info sent to me regarding Blackburn

I thought that this was fantastic; someone who does the PR for Blackburn has contacted me via email to give me this information.

'I work for Blackburn Rovers' PR agency for off the field activity and I just wondered if you were aware of the ticket prices for Pompey's game at Ewood Park on Sunday 23rd September, kick off 3pm?

'Blackburn is one of the Premier League clubs that has significantly reduced the price of season tickets and match day tickets for both home and away supporters. Ticket prices for the Pompey fans are just £7 for junior tickets, £10 for senior tickets, and £20 for adult tickets.

'Tickets will be available on the day of the game for Portsmouth fans but it's best to buy advance to avoid queuing. Ticket information is available on portsmouthfc.co.uk.

'If you could circulate this information to your website members that would be great. Hope to see you at Ewood Park; I will be there as I'm a Blackburn season ticket holder.

'Hope you have a great season'.

You know what fellas think of Blackburn what you will - personally I think they are a really good team that is somewhat underrated - but I think that quite a lot of clubs, probably Pompey included, could learn from their example as they often seem to reduce their match day tickets.

Yep, you could argue they do this as crowds are low, but they are rewarding their fans, without wanting to be harsh to Pompey, as I love the club, but they are not always as kind to us as they could, or even should be.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

The new stadium stories seem to have died a death again, i do wonder if the move will ever happen in our lifetime.

Wow. That's cheap enough to convince my dad to make the long trip north. Provided I don't have work of course.

At last a club that is using its head to attract more fans particularly away ones to travel on a Sunday to a game. Well done Blackburn

the stadium talk will have died down, as the planning aplication was due to be submitted in october. doubtless, it will be rejected, on not having enough toilets, but 1 month later, another will be submitted. and probably over that period of time, we will here something, but there isnt much going on to talk about for now...sadly, blackburn is just too far away for me to get too for me, but it should be a good game!!!

im sure you will mate and we will be a loud bunch, but i seem to have noticed a more vocal presence from blackburn recently... so long as pompey are selling tickets - and basically selling out each week - they wont drop prices will they, they will only keep going up i fear as they know people will pay it...

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.
