Blues team with University of Portsmouth students

Pompey have teamed up with the University of Portsmouth Business Entrepreneurship and Marketing department to find out what fans think about the club.

And former Fratton favourite Vincent Pericard is one of the students leading the research.

The French striker played for the club between 2002 and 2006 having signed, initially on loan, from Italian giants Juventus.

He scored 10 goals in 49 appearances, featuring in the Division One title-winning campaign and also the Premier League.

Pericard is now an undergraduate at the university and his group are working with Pompey to build on a survey the club initially conducted in 2013.

Covering things like ticketing, the matchday experience and the stadium, as well as gathering information about the profile of the fan-base, supporters are encouraged to say what they think.

Colin Farmery, the club’s head of inclusion, is managing the project for Pompey. He said: “We were delighted to team up with Vincent and his colleagues.

“We have worked really hard with them to come up with a survey which will hopefully allow us to measure progress from when we last conducted this exercise, as well as explore other areas which have emerged.

“The feedback we received was very positive last time we did this exercise, so hopefully we have maintained that feel-good factor.

“Finding out what our fans think is always important to us, as it enables us to focus in areas we need to improve.”

The survey is entirely confidential, but fans who take part can volunteer to enter a prize draw for a signed first team shirt.
