Become the virtual owner of a training ground penalty spot

The Pompey Academy FanFunding campaign is now in full swing, with more than £52,000 already contributed to the £250,000 target since the launch event on June 10.

The campaign is expected to get close to £60,000 over the weekend and to celebrate we have introduced a prize draw.

Anybody who contributes by 9am on Monday, June 23 will be in with a chance of becoming the virtual owner of one of the penalty spots of the new pitches they will have helped to create.

The winner will also be presented with their special certificate during the first home match of the season against newly-promoted Cambridge on August 16.

Newly-appointed academy manager Mark Kelly said: “The response to the campaign has been incredible so far and we want to show our appreciation to everybody who’s got behind it by doing something special for them.”
The club’s project manager for the campaign, Colin Farmery, explained why he thinks additional rewards are important.

He said: “In the last week we’ve introduced some new rewards, including the opportunity to write a match report and some wristbands, but we felt it was important to recognise the contributions so far as every pound is so important and we wanted to offer something additional to say thank you.”

Fans can contribute any amount from £10 to £10,000 and will receive an exclusive reward as well as their entry into the free prize draw.

Everybody who has contributed to date will also be included in the draw and the winner will be picked out of the hat by Kelly when he visits Roko to survey the future academy pitches for the first time next week.
