Tours of Fratton Park also available
Pompey’s promotions past are the theme of the club’s latest History Day on Sunday, November 27 (11am-3pm).
And the trophy the club won for winning the Division One title in 2003 will be the centre-piece exhibit.
Organised by the Pompey History Society, the twice-annual event also incorporates a programme and memorabilia fair – with dealers from all over the south in attendance – and the opportunity to have a tour of Fratton Park at a family-friendly cost.
Taking place in the Victory Lounge, there will be a free display of artefacts and memorabilia which will feature the club’s promotion years and it is hoped some former players from those seasons, including Alan Knight, Vince Hilaire and Vincent Pericard, will be able to attend.
The Pompey Pals charity will also be putting on a free display about the soldiers who left the city from 1914 to fight in the Great War.
The tours of the stadium, starting from the VIP entrance in Frogmore Road, will be priced at £10 for adults, with an accompanied under 18 going free. They can be booked online here.
Colin Farmery, who heads up history and archiving projects for the club, said: “We have run this event three times now and it has proved to be very popular.
“We are sure that Pompey’s promotion seasons will prove an equally popular theme.
“Among other things, we will have the trophy the club were presented by the Football League for winning Division One in 2003 in the exhibition.”
