Join the Fratton fun this Saturday
Pompey’s 12th Man will be staging the latest Fans’ Day in the Fratton End car park on Saturday.
The first event took place in 2011 and has become a regular fixture in the calendar since.
Pompey chairman Iain McInnes, MP Penny Mordaunt and Donna Moore will open the fun day for fans of all ages – which runs from 11.30am-2pm – with Express FM’s Dan Windle compering.
A live music stage will play host to local musicians Kill Kasper, Andy Muscat, Dickensian Vagabonds, Billy Gregory and the Three Sultan Sheiks.
Other attractions include a licensed bar, barbeque and hog roast, ice cream van, inflatable football pitch, bungee run, rodeo football, grab-a-grand machine, penalty shoot-out, face painting and much more.
Pompey in the Community will be attendance with their National Citizen Service participants in an area that features penalty, crossbar and fastest shot games.
The Pompey Pals will have a display and will also be selling their new ale, while a raffle will take place around 2pm.
The entire day’s costs have been met by the Pompey Supporters’ Trust and an anonymous donation from a club president.
All proceeds will be donated to Jack’s 1st Steps, The Elizabeth Foudation and the Patey Day Centre.
The event is free to attend, but Pompey’s 12th Man ask that everyone supports the charities by buying raffle tickets, using the rides or donating directly into the buckets that will be going round the during the day.
Organiser Tom Dearie said: “It goes without saying that we value and appreciate the efforts that have been made in the past.
“The past two Fans’ Days have raised more than £20,000 for local charities and good causes and we hope this day will be no different.
“It is another perfect chance for Pompey fans of all ages to come together on the opening day of the home league campaign to celebrate the club coming back from the dead, achieving all it has and looking forward to achieving even more.”
Parking is still available in the main car park on a first come, first served basis, priced £5 per car.
