Inclusion day at Fratton Park
Pompey are delighted to be hosting the club’s first inclusion day at Fratton Park next month.
Organised by Pompey DSA, in partnership with the club and Pompey in the Community, ‘Pompey for All’ will be held in the Victory Bar on Thursday, April 7 (12pm-5pm).
Representatives from Pompey’s amputee, powerchair and walking football teams will be on hand, as well as Special Olympics participants, to guide you through their sports.
Attendees can even have a go with some taster sessions, including an introduction to Boccia.
To get closer to the action, Pompey for All offers access behind the scenes with a virtual Fratton Park tour and the chance to meet your heroes with player appearances.
Pompey Disabled Supporters’ Association, the Audio Descriptive Service commentators, Pompey in the Community, Life and Chimes and all participating sports will be providing staffed information stalls.
Steve Webb, chair of Pompey DSA, said: “Fans can find out more about the various branches of the Pompey family tree and what they do.
“It promises to be a great event which will showcase some of the positive stuff the club and its partners are doing.”
Colin Farmery, the club’s head of inclusion, added: “This is an important event and we were delighted when the DSA approached us with the idea to celebrate the wide range of opportunities for everyone to get involved in football at Pompey.”
