FanZone: The Ultimate Pre-Game Experience
As the clock ticks down to kick-off, the atmosphere around Fratton Park is electric. The FanZone is alive with anticipation, offering a plethora of activities to get fans in the mood for the big game. Our resident DJ sets the tempo, spinning the decks and pumping up the crowd. Nelson’s Corner in the Victory Lounge provides entertainment with table football and a PlayStation console, ensuring fans are entertained before the action begins. However, please note that the inflatable games will not be present this evening, offering a different experience for the fans.
Food & Drink: A Gastronomic Delight
To quench the thirst of dedicated supporters, the stadium kiosks have curated a selection of beverages that will please even the most discerning palate. From Madri to East Coast IPA, Stowford Press, and an improved Pompey Lager Pilsner, the choices are varied and impressive. An early bird offer awaits supporters who arrive within the first 30 minutes after the turnstiles open at 6.30pm – a pie or sausage roll accompanied by a pint for a mere £8.15. Additionally, fans can indulge in a delectable pie and a refreshing soft drink for just £6 throughout the evening. This month’s guest pie is the tantalizingly zesty chicken fajita. For those seeking a different culinary adventure, the shipping container behind the Fratton End offers mouth-watering chicken or fish goujons, served alongside piping hot chips. And if pizza is more to your liking, supporters in the North Stand can visit the kiosk four mezzanine to enjoy a slice of cheesy perfection accompanied by an ice-cold Amstel. To ensure prompt service, beer tokens are conveniently available for purchase in kiosks three, five, and 11. However, please note that only supporters seated in the Fratton End will have access to the container bar during halftime. The Victory Bar, shipping container, and external North Stand kiosk will all be open from 5pm, allowing fans to savor their favorite refreshments before the game commences.
Tickets: Secure Your Spot
Limited seating is still available for purchase online or at the Anson Road ticket office. It is important to note that supporters are advised against calling the ticket office on matchday due to high call volumes. For those attending the game, an optional £3 charge is applicable for a paper ticket if you forget to bring your season card. However, if you are unable to attend, fear not. By purchasing an iFollow match pass, you can enjoy the game from the comfort of your own home. The pass includes four-camera coverage and accompanying commentary, ensuring you don’t miss a moment of the action.
Academy Showcase: The Future Stars Shine
Continuing our commitment to showcasing the talents of our academy, the under-15s and under-16s will grace the pitch at half-time. Witness the potential future stars of Pompey as they walk around the hallowed grounds of Fratton Park, promising an inspiring sight that will stir the hearts of fans.

Additional Information: Cashless Transactions and More
It is important to note that Fratton Park is now a cashless stadium, introducing a more seamless and efficient payment system. Only contactless payments will be accepted, with programme sellers around the ground offering this convenient option. However, cash transactions are still being accepted outside the ground until a more reliable contactless system can be established. Please keep in mind that contactless payment is required for any programmes purchased in the Victory Lounge, kiosks, or the club shop. The Pompey Lottery will also be present, allowing fans to purchase tickets for matchday competitions and contribute to the support of the academy. Furthermore, a new retail kiosk is available for supporters in the South Stand, ensuring you can proudly display your Pompey merchandise with ease.
