Portsmouth FC and Pompey in the Community are delighted to announce that 1,500 junior tickets in the Milton End have been distributed to local schools and football clubs for today’s match.
This is thanks to the support of the North Stand Sponsor PMC and their local partners – who include Aqua Cars, Finest Windows, MR Electrical and AD Mechanical – who are all committed to encouraging the next generation of Blues fans to attend games.
Pompey in the Community have issued a large portion of the tickets to local schools, who used them to reward children for their achievements this term, while the others have been handed to local football clubs.
Blues chief executive Mark Catlin said: “As a community club, it’s ticket promotions like this that define us. Having spoken to many the schools involved, you realise just what it means to the children to attend a Pompey fixture.”
“We can’t thank PMC and their partners enough for the support they have shown in making this happen – as well as Pompey in the Community, who have worked incredibly hard to distribute the tickets.”
Steve Cripps, director at PMC, added: “We are proud to have brought together local companies to support Portsmouth FC and Pompey in the Community in their ambition to remain at the heart of the Portsmouth community.”
